Nice photos Yablonsky.  Love the reflections off the shiny surface of the plane in the second photo.

Yes, lovely! On the third one too!

Btw, the first shot, what maneuver was that? Looks great! Falling leaf? May be not.

Enjoy!

All of those are terrific but 4 and 5 are real stand outs.

Great aircraft shots Guys ! I can see the attraction in taking these shots.

The ones of the girl wing walking make me feel quite queasy !

Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L IS II with a 2 X III TC.
Body is a 5D mark III and the whole thing was on a gimbal mount.

Hmmm... What's the AF speed like, I currently use a 135 f2 and a 1.4x MkII TC for my tele needs, which is fast enough, but I've been pondering a longer lens to replace my 70-300 Non L which is rubbish at locking onto fast jets.  A 70-200 f2.8 and 2x TC sounds interesting, but has anyone used that combo against a 100-400 ? Also, how much did you crop by ?

Not to be outdone by Mr. McPhee - a few more.

Those wingwalking girls are braver than I am but on the bright side, my face doesn't (normally) get pummelled about at work!

On a sidenote, how do you post more than 4 images at once? I always get limited but see some other posters uploading loads. What's going on?

GuyF - That shot of the ME109 is noteworthy, which is no small thing considering the photos in this thread.

Jim
I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

Jim & Click,

Thanks, the 109 is actually known as a Buchon and it's Spanish. That rascal Hitler sold 'em to Franco minus engines (ahh, what a gent, never buy a used car from a Nazi dictator, that's what I say). It wasn't until 1947 that we (the Brits) sold them Merlin engines to power them. It was weird to see a Spanish Buchon Bf109 painted in German colours (they had to get special permission to do so) and sounding like a Spitfire. I don't think there is an emoticon to describe all that.

Take care.

Guy 9343 and the 109 are rockin - nice work.

OT I know (I hope I don't get slammed for this) but news broke today that the CIA has finally admitted Area 51 is real: http://aerospacenews.com/area-51-is-real-says-cia/news/military-news/

Sharing 'cause there are more than a few avgeeks in this thread. :)

Focal length: the longer the better.
Exposure time: the shorter the better ~ 1/1000 sec.
I used my 300 f/4 L IS with the 5DII

The first one is amazing!
