    Sigh.... I absolutely love airplane pictures. I can't wait for our Airshow in October, although my pictures will pale in comparison to yours. My favorite is the first sky diver shot with the flag and smoke. Really striking picture. Can't wait to see more!!

    I'm guessing the Skyhawks are the parachute display team. Because that looks like a modified DeHavilland DHC-4 Caribou to me.

    Can't go wrong opening an Airic thread. On the fifth picture is the flag tied to the guys leg? Enjoyed the pictures.

    It is a DHC-5 Buffalo, you have them Downunder don't you? Kind of a beefed up version of the Caribou.

    Yes, it is tied to his leg and weighted down to keep it open.

    Thanks for the comments, with any luck I will have some air-to-air work today.

    Airic, we still fly a few Caribous in the RAAF. The Defence Force just can't find a replacement as good as these old workhorses on short strips. Affectionately called gravel trucks by us and also the only aircraft prone to birdstrikes from birds crashing into the back of them! They are rather slow for those who don't know :)

    I have (fingers crossed) an air to air shoot on the 2 July in some Tiger Moths.
