The airshow was excellent,4 hrs uninterupted display,shot mostly in S mode,I was havin trouble with AF in Aperture mode,200 iso (thanks for the tip Coldsnail,got a few though).The Tcon was at its limit,the pics needed a bit of tweekin in CS2 and pic cooler,but I`m very pleased with how they turned out.I`m away for a couple of days ,I`ll post more when I get Back.

Utterly Butterly Wing walkers.

It was a cool day,The highlight for me was the sound of the P51 Mustangs when they were in a steep dive,

I`ll post more when I get back :cool::cool:

TD, Those are really cool pics, must have been a real adventure catching those planes in mid flight.

TD, those are great shots. You did a great job of capturing them. I gotta ask though, why, why would anybody get on the wings of airplanes when they are flying...keep in mind that I get nervous on a 6 foot stepladder, LOL. Looking forward to more.

Bob, their sponsor probably has to BUTTER them up to get them to do it!!! LOL

TD, I have to ask, Wouldn't landscape mode have worked for the focus at those distances???? Makes the focusing a snap that way!

Great shots TD. Lookin forward to the rest. Must've been awesome to hear the planes as well as see them.
