Nice one Mark. Were you just beside in another plane?

You must have really been swinging that big ol' lens in a hurry to get such a sharp shot in a pan...
Good One...

Hi Mado,

Thanks, and no, not in another plane, though I wish I was in one of these. The plane was very close to the ground doing a low pass at 240mph. Yeehaw!

I hear you Norm. I won't go to the second story to put Christmas lights on my house, but somehow I would still love being in one of these, even upside down.

Hi Jerry,

Thanks, and it was a bit of trial and error (mostly error) to get a decent shot. The 600mm comes from a 300 2.8 w/2x TC so it wasn't as bad to swing round as a full 600 would be.

Thank you Tom, glad you liked this one. Being there and hearing the 400hp motor was incredible!

Thanks Robert. I appreciate that. It was pretty cool seeing this pilot rip it up right in front of us.

Great capture, Mark. I can feel the prop wash.

Thanks, it was really fun to see in person. The sound from that motor is killer.
