Hi Kieth.
Great shots, I like the Fury wingtip smoke to demonstrate the vortices.

Does the jet race in the unlimited war birds!  ;D

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks :)  Jets have their own class.  I think you could enter an F-4 Phantom if you wanted.  F-22 vectored thrust would kill it!  LOL

FYI-  the Reno Air Race  jet class is not lame.  These guys and girls(yes) fly faster and get closer to the pylons than most other classes.

  One exception to close might be the T-6 class.

Great shots again Keith!

Nice series Graham.  Good work using a slow shutter to keep the iso down too :)

Good shots!  Night pyro at airshows is tough to capture correctly.  Good work on the exposure and focus. :)

Hi Click, Roo, dhr90 and Kieth.
Your praise is much appreciated, thank you. I have to say that a lot of dumb luck was involved, I set AV mode and +1/3 I think and left the camera to it, there are about 150 or more shots in the trash for too dark or too blurred!  ;D

dhr, the two lines are from a zip wire, I was shooting from Bournemouth pier, they had a tower built on the pier and the zip wire to the shore set up on the display side of the pier, very few of the aircraft did anything other than approach the display area from the other side. Good planning from the organisers!

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Kieth.
I thought the jet looked close, but the T-6 looks like it might sheet the marker, man that is close. 2 more superb shots.

Cheers, Graham.

Thank you all for the help on the other thread I started in which I asked for ideas for a twilight air show.  I'm cross posting this:
Thanks all for your help and images posted.I'll put some of mine on the other page with the military airshows etc.  Just wanted to put down my post show thoughts.  The EF 300 f2.8 with 1.4x extender was plenty of lens, though I saw quite a few people there with bigger lenses on gimbals.  The show started in early evening so there was enough light to get some good in flight shots. 

I hand held the 300 the entire time and I think that that enabled me to get some good flyby shots.  The f15 and 16 flybys were just too fast at least for me to capture any shots while on a tripod and really it was not needed for the daylight portion.

I made a classic photographer mistake in bringing my non-photographer son who was not interested in me getting good fireworks shots, so Valvebounce kudos for getting great shots of the planes and fireworks.  It was fun and I'll do it again alone next year.   

Cross posting on the other board this message and images. 

Got lots of images to wade through.  I never thought I'd come close to filling a 128GB card, but this show almost did.
