Default FZ35 - shooting aircraft on takeoff

Taken from my front yard which is let's say a kilometre from the runway, with the exception of #1 which was flying overhead and I just had time to grab the camera out and snap before it was gone. All of them taken on the iA setting, just playing around... and they are obviously cropped and sharpened.

Just wanted to show what the zoom on this one could handle. The EVF is pretty much useless for following them but the LCD does an okay job when combined with keeping an eye on where the plane is headed.

Shooting the smaller fighter jets is allot hard then a large airline, especailly at that range.
