Some lovely photo's.  I'm currently using a 7D with 70-200 f2.8 and 100-400 f5.6 at airshows.  Has anyone moved from a 7D to 5D3 for airshow photography, if so how are you finding the switch?  Not a pic from an airshow, but flying in a helicopter next to a spitfire with goactionstations in the UK.


Would love to do this mate - how do you get on it?


Hi Scott, it's run through a company based in Canterbury, Kent.  Not sure if you can post web links to this site http://goactionstations.co.uk/

You can go along to their airfield at Pent Farm on the days they're flying and get some fantastic shots, they fly spitfire and hurricane and speaking with the owner they're trying to get hold of a mosquito as well from New Zealand.

Here's a couple I took at Avalon with a 60d and Sigma 150-500.  Unfortnately, didn't quite nail the focus on the fireball shot :(

The first one is very impressive with the fireball.

Sadly, due to sequestration, they canceled our local air show at NAS Oceana which was to be a week from this weekend - http://www.oceanaairshow.com/contact/press-release. This was to be our year to have a Blue Angels demonstration.

Local Langley AFB also canceled theirs early this year over budgetary concerns. http://www.jble.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123336638

Not going to say a word about the politicians.  :-X

Gee whiz Scott, you keep that up and you might get press-ganged into being their official photographer!

Hi Scott.
Superb shot of the Catalina, thanks for posting it.
I was stood in Northwood House gardens Cowes IoW at a classic car show and one flew over, no time to fit my 15- 500 Siggy so got pics at 85mm just to prove I saw it. Saw one static at the Goodwood Revival last year, man they are a lot bigger than I realised! ::)
They and their crews served such an important role and yet get so little recognition.

Cheers Graham.


Graham,

It is the same plane as the one at Goodwood.

Here is Scott's plane at Goodwood.

This really has turned into a fantastic thread - many thanks to everyone for making it such a fantastic read and posting some amazing pictures - keep it up!  :)

Just shows the world what a talented bunch we are.

Flying in a Spitfire is a dream I don't think I will ever achieve so flying next to one is maybe the next best thing.
Love the pictures of Miss Pick up - she is a dream to photograph and nice and slow too!  :)
