Wow, impressive pictures! :)

Here is a link to an everyday video.. cockpit view from a beautifully restored DH Mosquito flying in formation with a 2-seated Spitfire and a Vampire!
NZ looks great from that viewpoint, is it the right place to be..? :p
Thanks for sharing Erik! Impressive - with those two big counter rotating props so close in front, almost touching the (short) nose...
I'd have loved to be the camera operator :sneaky::p, both for the flight with such a plane / formation and for the country :)
Wiebe.

I think we need to let the world know that the best (and most modest) aviation photographers happens to be sitting here at canonrumors, waiting for any exciting assignment... We can shoot anything, like Spitfires, Mustangs, Mosquitos, Vampires, Dragonflies, Cats, Dogs or whatever... cheap :p

We shoot anything, anytime! I would love to do another air to air shoot soon, especially with something like a Kittyhawk :D I will always defer to John Dibbs air to air shots though - exceptional imagery :)

Hi Erik.
I see they don’t let blind parachutists use their guide dogs any more then! :oops::oops::eek::rolleyes:
In all seriousness, a very good shot.

Cheers, Graham.
Ps I hope the guide dog joke is international and not just a warped British sense of humour!

The landing procedure looks more complicated than I thought; steer toward the landing area, deploy airbrake, remove oxygen mask, fold computer, drop front pack, prepare for touchdown and remember to make a good impression on the public... :p
