Hi folks.

I had a great day at an airshow today at Leeuwarden airbase in The Netherlands. Wanted to share some pictures with you that I took with my FZ20. Taking pictures of jets proved to be quite a challenge. Especially focussing was a bit of a problem. I kinda hoped I could use Manual Focus,set itto 'infinity' and shoot away. Didn't work out... I dunno, gave up on it quickly. On a positive side, having 12X zoom was great and high speed burst mode was very helpful too. I'm quite pleased with the results I got in P mode using Auto settings. I expected quite a bit of underexposedpics (planes against bright sky), but it wasn't bad at all.

So here's some pics I took, which I only resized.
