Whose is that?  I heard of a few being privately owned, must be a strange world to have the money to burn like that!

At ease, Jim  ;)

The Double-Ugly F-4 is still in the USAF inventory. Two bases, Tyndall AFB and Holloman AFB, both regularly operate these F-4's.  They've all be modified to be full-scale drones, so that while this particular flight had a pilot on board, the aircraft can also be flown by ground controllers sans on board pilot.

Huh.  I saw a show on their program to refurbish F-16s for it, I figured they'd gone through all the F-4s.  We had one here doing an AB run the one time, even sitting in a van with ear defenders on it was remarkably loud.

Great shot, drone or otherwise; someone obviously loves that airplane.

Tyndall has a handful of QF-16's; the replacement for this QF-4. Tyndall will ferry the last ones to Holloman for consolidation and then eventually a big ol' fireball.

First post:

Have had the lens for about one year now. I use it daily and love it all focal lengths; with and without extender employed.

This at 560mm on 1DX


Magnificant capture Incredibly!

Yesterday I took this one with my 1Dx 200-400 combo on a local Belgium Airshow. I will post some more examples during the next days. The sky was changing a lot during the day and not the best, but the show was marvelous.

258mm


350mm

A real great lens. And what a combo with the 1Dx.

Fall golf by NAVBPhotos, on Flickr

Took this monster out for a swing on my latest golf afternoon. On loan from CPS for some field hockey / volleyball tournaments this week, but snuck out to play / shoot too.  My playing partner was gracious enough to let me take a few shots.  Really enjoyed this lens, was surprisingly able to handhold this with a RRS L plate on my 1Dx - though was glad to put it down in my golf cart between shots / holes.
1Dx, 1DIV, 5D3, 7DII, (Sigma 15 FE)

Tee Time by NAVBPhotos, on Flickr

Comments on the bokeh here ?
Distracting or interesting? Was really only playing a round of golf and bringing the camera was an afterthought, but did want to see how this lens performed wide open.  I have been trying to shoot more open, and with lower ISO lately and not sure this works for this shot.
As a side note, I actually had a hole-in-one on this hole a few weeks ago, so wanted to get a tee to green shot as someone tee'd off.  I like the dreamy quality but if this was your tee shot, would you want more depth of field ?

Here was similar one @f/11, but had to lower shutter, raise ISO - I suspect most would tolerate higher ISO and raise shutter even more - but ahh the compromises we make :).  If you were to purchase a shot like this or the last one, what is more important, DOF, stop action, or noise ??
