    Another great day to be alive. I had a shoot with the Canadian Harvards, a Canadian Aerobatic Team, and these are a few of the results. The Harvards are a WWII training aircraft and the CH's perform and aerobatic routine at airshows across Canada and the United States.

    Over the top! At 4.5Gs the D-70 gets really heavy

    Going down the back-side of the loop. That is our smoke shadow on the land below.

    Formation Break!

    Heading straight down. The G Force was more than I expected and it was very hard holding the camera during the pull-out. I'm now paying the price with sore mussels and an acking back :?

    As a side bonus I shot a buddies Piper Colt out of a Starduster biplane 8) Crazy Mainer this is Mike's Colt. He flew the SE-5a on your shoot at Geneseo if I remember right.

    I like your first and third picture from the group. Nice airplane formations and smoke trails in those two. I also enjoy the perspective you get from the cockpit because it's hard to get the same perspective from the ground. Nice work, AIRIC.

    Now Eric,

    Didn't I tell you to make sure you were wearing a Body Mounted harness to hold the camera when you are doing High G Stuff. I bet your Arms and Legs are killing you now. :twisted: :roll:

    By the Way if you talk to Mike say Hello for me I would love to come up and do some more Air to Air with the Guys.

    Talk to you later.

    Cheers Crazymainer

    Awesome!

    Being the dork that I am I calculated your camera would weigh about 6lb without the battery or lense. :p I love seeing the shaddow of the smoke in the shots. Very cool!

    I have a few hours in a Piper Colt, but nose wheel conversion. Good times!

    Who needs a body harness? All I need is a few days to recover :roll: As well, the tight harness and parachute straps have left me a little sore in spots. :shock: No nooky tonight :cry:
