We watched from a ship called the Shieldhall, the onboard commentator said that the Yaks were built specifically to thrash the competition on behalf of the USSR as it was then, he also said that the pilots were literally told to fly the wings off the things to win and that because of this they had a very short lifespan (I think he said it was 16 hrs) between major overhauls including new wing spars?
Does anyone have information on this, can you confirm or refute this, either way I'm interested to be edumacated.  ;D ;D

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Click.
Thank you for your praise, very much appreciated.
By the way how are you so quick?  ??? You managed to reply to my first post whilst I was copying and pasting the links for the second set!  :o

Cheers, Graham.

Good stuff Graham!!  Here's some info on the display team Yaks.  Looks like most Yak 50s were scrapped after 50 hours.  The 1976 world champion, Viktor Letsko, was killed in 1978 when the main spar of his Yak failed.

Hi Roo.
Thanks for that, I was busy trying to take photo's whilst the commentator was talking and my brain wants to shoot or listen so listening took second place! :)
I did subconsciously register low hours before something happened but I guess I filled in too many blanks! ::)

Cheers, Graham.

Cheers, Graham.

Wow, very nice series Graham!
And you are very brave - using 1/60s with 560mm on crop - and getting away with it ;):)
It does give the picture a more dynamic feel, with the props smeared out (?) like that, just catching the light!
Very nicely done...!
cheers, Wiebe

Hi Wiebe.
Thank you, I have to say that it is a privilege to get such praise from you guys, however, one mans brave might be another mans foolish luck.  ;D ;D
Seriously though, one of the goals is to get better shots from me and my gear and one thing that has really helped is to have the function on the camera to press the AF On button and have Manual 1/1000th f8 (wide open with 1.4x converter) Auto ISO Evaluative metering and then press the *AE lock button and have another set of settings 1/60th ISO 100 Spot metering and dial in the aperture to get the exposure, I guess it might have been better to set Tv but it is what I set in advance.
This means prop only slightly blurred or even frozen keepers and then go for the hard shots, you should have seen my recycle bin, full of blurred rubbish well less than 5% keepers on the slow shutter speed!

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Erik.
As ever great photos, I think you found the correct place to dump them, exactly where many of the people who like to see great aircraft photos hang out!  ;)

Cheers, Graham.
