Default FZ-38 Aeroplane pics

Hi All, went out today with my camera as per usual. I live near an RAF base and whenever I go out nothing happens, but today I was a bit luckier.

Enjoying my FZ-38, I recently sold my Nikon D40 as I was getting fed up carrying around the camera and lenses. As good as the FZ38 is though I do miss the SLR's viewfinder! Hope you like the pics.











Included the one below as I thought it is unusual to see the HUD from the outside

nice shots of the thermal waves coming off the tarmac with the typhoon on the last shot, and the jet blast form the second.

The 4th shot a larger sensor would have help with the sky, it looks like it is starting to degrade.

The spitfire is nice, would look great with a bit more prop blur.

Great photos! However, for what it is worth, that is a highly modified Spitfire, as illustrated by the more than 4 bladed prop.

Thanks for your comments,

Hi Sarah, the Spitfire is part of the Historic Battle of Britain Memorial flight in the UK, it is slightly modified to take a Shackleton Griffon engine, but the 5 blade propeller was on the Spitfire at the end of its life. According to the Battle of Britain website this was the last Spitfire to fly an operational sortie for the RAF.
