From the Gathering of Eagles airshow at Lost Nation airport in Ohio on Sunday. The proceeds of the show went to helping fund the B-29 Doc restoration to flight worthy status. The B-17 Sentimental Journey, B-25s Panchito and Yankee Warrior were fairly busy doing ride flights. Unfortunately, Journey didn't do a photo pass. She did however do a number of bomb runs on the airfield.

Does anyone know where this Spit is based. We have a partner whose Dad flew it in WWII and we want to find it, and or find one and restore it in his Dad's scheme. I know the brain trust can find it. It's in the UK I believe.........

Looks like the BBMF LF.IXc MK356, it now wears a silver paint job and the designation UF-Q.

Tears come to my eyes when I see Spitfires. They remind me so much of the Battle of Britain. I am so, so grateful to those young pilots who went in against the odds and kept my country free of the tyranny of nazis.

Thank you Jan-Arie

Great Apache! Why do other counties show off their Apaches flying so much more often than the US does?

It was very cool to see this FM-2 Wildcat flying at Lost Nation.

Truly an amazing and very dedicated group of flyers who fought toe to toe against a very experienced and lethal force... and never backed down. And enough cannot be said for R. J. Mitchell, the Supermarine Spitfire designer! I love that wing design!

Hi Guys,

Looks like the big trip is getting closer.

Im planning on attanding MA2A reunion/gettogether at HQ, & then Alliance. Jim has told me the the Hampton Hotel seems to be a popular choice , anyone else staying there ??
My first time stateside so i might ned a little guidence.
Any tips for gear ??, Im thinking about bringing my 1D4 & 70-200f2.8 & my 5D3 & 100-400, also my 24-105.
Thinking that bringing my 300f2.8 all the way from Australia might be too much weight, ( I'll already be loaded down with Violet Crumble Bars for Jim) might hire a 300f2.8 for the weekend ...
Is it expensive to hire a car form Dallas to HQ & for the weekend ?? Im flying out of Dallas on the tuesday.

Any tips would be appreciated.

I'm a bit perturbed today, the substitute instructor today was telling me that in order to qualify as a panning shot, I had to shoot flying aircraft at 1/60th or slower or it's not panning. yes? no? I showed him these images and he said no the backgrounds are only blurry due to DOF..

He's flat wrong, Laura, and you can quote me. Sheesh.

You can get panning blur at any reasonable shutter speed if the subject's moving fast enough across your field of view; and I see panning blur in every one of your shots.
