Default Airport days in cincinnati

A few from Airport Days at Cincinnati's Lunken Airport (Spring 2008). It was nice to get up close to the aircraft. Pentax *istDL + Sigma 70-300 DG APO.

Lovely shots, love the nose shot of the 737 BBJ. I think the second one is a douglas dauntless.

Thanks Dustin. During the event, the public had access to part of the ramp. When I saw this aircraft turning on to the taxiway, I lined myself up with the center yellow line...was not quite centered but close enough. As long as the pilot kept his jet centered on the yellow line (which he or she did), the symmetry fell into place. I have some better lenses (70-200 f/2.8)ready for this year's event!

Shoturtle: thanks for your comments and the ID on the warbird.

Although quite similar to the Douglas this first warbird is a North American SNJ-5 Texan and the 2nd is a YAK-52TW.

I agree with Dustin about the symmetry on the first one it works very well.

I really want to get and shoot some real aircraft, I spend a lot of time around radio controlled ones but it's not quite the same!

Mark: Thanks for your contribution to the ID's on the warbirds. I figured the #3 was of Soviet origin based on the insignia.

Re. the symmetry, here is another one taken from the same position on the tarmac. In this one however, I appear to be in sync with the center yellow line, but the aircraft is off center to my left by a degree (the center of the cockpit windows and the tail do not line up perfectly)..picky...picky...picky

yea, i think you are right, it is just a little bit off.

which really makes a difference in this shot actually. the clear symmetry of the first one gives a bigger impact.

still a nice shot.
