Hi Folks.
Thanks for clearing that up for me, I did know some airliners had pulled some fairly stunt like manoeuvres, my suspicion was about going vertical or near vertical. Just about to check the videos you have linked to.
Edit. Thanks, the side view gives a really good impression of just how steep the climb out was, not quite as steep as it first appears in the original linked video, but not unimpressive to say the least.

Cheers, Graham.

Not true. Barrel rolls do not induce abnormal G loads, it is a 1G maneuver that pretty much anything moving can do.


A fair point, I was just passing on info I saw on TV.

No problem Guy, I thought the internet was the only source of dodgy information!  :)
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Hi privatebydesign.
Really, misinformation is all over the place, all the people that post it online live somewhere. There is probably someone close to you now misinforming a neighbour! ;D

Cheers,Graham.

Well it wasn't on Fox News, so it might be..........

Thanks click! most appreciated your very kind

Farnborough 2014

Spitfire and sky shot on the same day but not necessarily at the same time  8)

I'm not sure if this is considered a big no no cheat but I liked this view of the Spitfire as I don't care much for the trainer mark but the sky was really boring so I borrowed the sky from later one in the day.

I like this pic as it evokes for me a feeling of freedom in more than one way
