    Plane pics don't tend to do it for me. Those are good though. Nice activity going on in them all.

    Duxford?

    Well spotted Ferny, it was Duxford.

    Pretty difficult shoot. weather wasn't great and I had to shoot at 1/200 to get the props blurred....with a 500mm lens. I used a monopod and just held my breath :)

    Not bad, considering the last time I want there I must have been under ten. It's the only time I've been on a plane to. The Concorde they (used to?) have there. :lol:

    They look pretty sharp to me. How much cropping did you do to them? Or are they "as is"?

    A wee bit of cropping on them but not much.

    Thanks guys. I still don't get to do air-to-air shots like Eric though. Guess I'll have to smuggle myself aboard a B25 one of these days ;)

    A couple of weeks ago I was over in Austria for airpower05, which included the final show for the SAAB Draken. I'll get some pics of that up if you're interested.

    Great shot Ant !

    I remember when I was a young fella and having those motorized model planes with the string and two handles, my father would crank that baby up, told me to don't let go. It would take off and I would get dizzy going in circles holding on for dear life. The first photo looks like that plane I used to have and brings back memories of those days.

    Here's a couple of Drakens for Eric ;)

    I'll dig out some more from Austria and put them in a new thread.
