Rodolfo,

Thanks for the idea. I will only take one body but since buying the 6D I reach for it most often yet...... You are right, the 7D with the 17-85 is a good choice, good camera, and covers a good range with light weight. The full frame also means heavier lens too.

Thanks,
Dan

Hi Dan,

I think your instincts are correct, take the 6D and a lens. You might want something with little more reach like Rodolfo suggested.

Have a great trip!

The Vulcan has done Air 2 Air missions before.

At least one of these was from the Skyvan photo platform that Kev Jackson shot quite a few of his A2A shots from. These are the guys who run the Air 2 Air from the Skyvan. http://www.air2air-academy.com

The Vulcan does a lot of corporate stuff with the Blades aerobatic team and their Extras.

Took a client's son foe a Cub ride early this morning, then headed off to my hello shoot. No joy on the target within the TFR, but we asked, and we got very close, just not close enough. Enjoying a late lunch and a gallon of iced tea.

We have a new deal in class B around here. You must submit, in writing, your request, with a map depiction of your targets, at least 24 hours in advance. I was pleased to see that Jake had all our ducks in a row. What I thought was going to take at least 2 hours on the Hobbs, took 1.3 due to our organized plan and very light winds. Gotta love that, great for the bottom line. Today's weather could not have been more perfect, a good 15 degrees below where it should be, climate change I can live with!

Thanks for the info Mark. I hope it doesn't come off as too snooty, but I'd rather take a beating than shoot a subject like the Vulcan from a Skycan. Few things worse than realizing you are limited and you have an incredible subject in your sights.

There's also an old-school film out there somewhere of the Vulcan being shot air to air from remote cameras on the tails of several Red Arrows jets. Film shows all the prep, mounting, etc...

Jim,

sounds like you might need to use a longer lens - maybe something like a 300F4 with a TC to give you the extra reach you need.

For the Gopro users amongst us -

Gopro no longer recommend using Sandisk cards when shooting in 2.7K or 4K modes. Apparently the Sandisk cards can't write the data fast enough.

When it absolutely, positively, has to be there overnight. I just didn't specify which night.

I think we swapped out weather systems: mid-90s here today, with smoky haze from all the wildfires burning in the states upwind of us.

Good one, Jeff!

...but I want more: do you have a frame with the jet a little bit farther above the bright/dark dividing line at the bottom? I'm not sure that would be better, but I think it might be.

Looks like without $omething major changing on the back end I won't be making it to AFW this year.
