Agree with Click; nice series! Must have been a great show... Planes are a bit too slick or smooth or whatever for my taste however - I like the work-/ warhorses better - but you won't see those in aerobatics too oftenMore oddities.. The Royal Jordanian Falcons team performing a superb aerobatic show at Dala-Järna Sweden.. In the middle of nowhere in other words
Smooth, elegant and near perfection
Allright, do you like Boeing Stearman and DH Tiger Moth better?I like the work-/ warhorses better - but you won't see those in aerobatics too often
Thanks Wiebe, I'll see if I can get more workhorses for you on Saturday.. it is last airshow for the season over here. The weather forecast is a bit shaky, but what could possibly go wrong
Oh I forgot to post the picture of the Vampire
+1 ; Saab has managed to create quite a few of these military workhorses that are elegant - even beautiful - at the same time.Hi Erik.
Beautiful picture, beautiful plane despite the hot air!
Graham, I hope you have a fantastic (photo-) experience, and I guess we may look forward to seeing some of the results (probably in a different thread) - at least if the Solent doesn't get too choppyHi Wiebe.
Sorry to disappoint you but unfortunately I’m not able to visit the Bournemouth Air Festival this year which will leave me with just the flyby display at the Goodwood Revival for this years aircraft shots. You can look forwards to some shots of classic racing cars if that floats your boat as it were!
I have been lucky enough to secure a place on the photo experience to shoot HSL 102, a WWII RAF rescue launch in action on the Solent next month so I’m hoping for good weather and good photos of that!
Nice series Erik! Not just 'hot air', it's burningSAAB 35 Draken, it use to look better but the light conditions were not very good besides the fact that the photographer forgot to attach the teleconverter
Funny, the device attached under the nose looks like an IRST but that thing was not invented when Draken was in service.. So it must either be something else or maybe SAAB is using this vintage aircraft for component testing. But it doesn't seem very likely..
Thanks. Actually I have some new photos of hot-air free aircrafts from the airshow at Uppsala yesterday. 3900 pictures to go through (mostly jets), it will take a while.. sigh The yellow AT-6 looked nice in the morning sunNice series Erik! Not just 'hot air', it's burning
To me it looks like you're your own worst judge - I do not notice anything wrong with your lighting and framing... Well done!
