Black lens? That sound like a Nikon thing. The 500mm I was using is white all the way through. I was standing just at the corner of the Concorde hanger next to a bloke who was also using a gimbal.
Looks like it will be the last Leuchars show in a few weeks. So far the only thing of interest is the Viggen. Dunno if I can be bothered paying £30 plus travel costs etc. just to see that. Quite a bit of the proposed display was at East Fortune so would probably just get more pics of the same - how many pics of a Jet Provost does a man need?
Liked your pics though.
I was further across from you, in the middle of the grassy section.
I do remember seeing a rather large Canon lens at the corner of the main hangar so there must have been more gimbals there than I thought
Great pics mate - with the 500mm you can get right in close.
Best display for me was the Typhoon - very disappointed with the Hurricane display - all high altitude stuff and he didn't give us a decent topside run past.
I really want to go to Leuchars but I have an appointment in Glasgow that night and 7:30pm and would need to get to it, so it's touch and go for me.
Worth going to get some shots of the Vulcan though - and there are lots of Typhoons up there too.
Lancaster and Spitfire coming as well so might be worth the trip.
Just need to find out the flying times and when stuff is displaying to see if I can go or not.
Getting away from Leuchars is a nightmare too - major traffic jams!
