I had a quick search on the forum and could not find a topic on this so, here goes. My main photographic passion is military aircraft. Although I do often take shots at airshows or bases, the thing I enjoy most is photographing them in the low level training areas, mainly in the UK. To show you what I mean, these are from my last trip a couple of weeks ago, bit of a slow day  All taken with a Canon 7D+ 300/2.8L+1.4x TC

USAF MC-130 Talon II






RAF Hawk T1




RAF Hawk T2




I have many, many more shots but I'd love to see what stuff you guys (and girls) have on this subject!!!

This is one of my favorite "airshow" shots. Snapped after a long hot day at Reno on the way back to the Peppermill.

Some awesome photos here, chaps. I wish I could add to them but I can't as all I have are commercial aircraft pics, and not many of those.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Some great shots here already. Love the BAF Viper Air-2-Airs and also the VC10 (missing those already). Great to see some old warbirds as well

A few of the much missed RAF Harriers, retired too early and now sitting in the desert in Arizona
