Hi Folks.
The first few shots from the Goodwood Revival Airshow.

...
Cheers, Graham.

Hi Graham,
very nice set of shots! Good job you did keeping movement in the props where panning keeps the rest sharp; v. well done!

Hi Wiebe.
Thanks, there is a very high failure rate, possibly 95% ended up in the trash! :) I took a lot at much higher shutter speeds with just a touch of blur to the prop blades, much higher keeper rate but they are not as good to look at.  :(

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Folks.
Last lot from the Goodwood Revival Airshow, since the big crash at the Shoreham airshow the air displays have been somewhat tame, nothing more than 3 or 4 flat circuits which leaves them somewhat lacking in interest so not many shots taken.

I would have preferred this shot with the plane flying towards me but the other side of the flown circuit where they were coming towards us was miles away! No option to turn around and get them approaching from behind me as behind is a large marquee and a line of trees!

For me this is the most evocative shot, makes you think of all the young men that might have found themselves in this situation for real and how many of them paid the ultimate price. Lest we forget.

Valvebounce,
Great shots!
I would still prefer a slight amount of prop blur, you know, makes it look more lively.

Hi lion rock.
Thank you. Yes as you may know from previous posts I try to do some slow shutter panned shots most of the time, I honestly don’t remember setting up 1/4000th shutter speed!  :( I guess I got careless and paid for it!  ::)

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Zim.
Everyone who likes motor racing should get to Goodwood, Festival of Speed for the modern stuff (mostly) and the Revival for the classic and historic cars, or I believe there are limited numbers of tickets for non members to attend the members meet which is a great event as it is not so busy and Photography is easier with space for a tripod for example, and room to look down the straight without getting someone’s head or long lens in your shot!  :o  ;)
Anyone attending one of the Goodwood motor racing events should be prepared to do some walking, lots and lots of walking!  :)

Cheers, Graham.

I've hardly got out to use the camera in ages but finally got the chance of a few days in the loop this week. I'd hoped for a few more snowy backdrops but just really got the bitterly cold wind instead!

Hi Simon.
Very nice, a great series of shots.
Looks like there is an aerodynamic flaw on the planes in shots 3 through 12, drawing exhaust soot up the tail like that! Can’t be good having that stuff eating in to the surfaces?
I nearly beat Click, but while I was typing a new reply has been posted, I might wish to review my post!! ;D

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Graham, thanks for the comments. The Tornado is fitted with reverse thrusters (its I think the only operational fast jet that now is (the Saab JAS37 was the other one) and its that that throws up all the soot on the tail. Although it was intended for wet surface / short field operations most pilots use it all the time as its more effective than the Tornados brakes. It can be selected prior to landing and activates automatically when the nose wheel compresses on landing. Large steel clam shells are forces behind the jet pipes and the exhaust vented forward and up/down. Poor picture but you can see them clearly here

Hi Simon.
Thanks for the quick explanation, so it is only cars that have “aerodynamic” issues causing soot up the tail lights! 
I wanted to say Tornado, but was not certain enough to risk it! I thought they had been retired, or is that being retired soon, or did I just imagine that bit.
I was not aware that the Tornado had reverse thrust, in fact I wasn’t aware that it is not a routine fit either! A very interesting shot you have there showing the aerodynamic configuration.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Simon, magnificent shots! Where do you have an opportunity to be at 'eye level' with these planes / pilots? Lake District?
