Just a question thinking of getting me a 70-200 4.0 I think it the most easy lens to use when photographing out of a plane would like a 2.8 but price wise the 4.0 suits better .
And i think quality wise it's also a great lens any thoughts ??


Jan-Arie,I've had the 4is for a few years, and its a great lens. I sometimes think I should go to the 2.8ii is (generally winter time when the light is crap) but money always stops me and there is no difference in iq.

Great shots from Nellis!

I kind of like the overcast shots, at least when a little blue sky makes it in frame. It makes for a more dynamic frame, plus it's just a giant softbox.

On the topic of clouds....

For some reason the 6th Special Operations Command of the Air Force wanted to test STOL capability of the Polish built M28 Skytruck and selected Breakaway Airpark's grass runways for this....dont ask me why but it was pretty neat. They were landing this thing very short! Impressive..

Jan Arie, Eric Stroud bought Glenn's Tweet. Randy is advising Eric. His operation supplies military honor fly overs for a variety of occasions. Couldn't think of a use that would please Glenn more.

Thanks Bud...

We've seen those Spook PZLs here in AZ from time to time. Funny to see a crew in shorts and Hawaiian shirts climb out on shut down.

Could you tell if it was carrying two reg numbers? Some of them have 3" digits on the outside of the booms with much smaller digits on the inside of the vertical fins.

Just wonderful Jay. You need to begin thinking about a book.

Didnt see that Jay - Only a number on the outside of the boom. Didnt get too close though - they came, did about 8 tos and landings and split. never shutdown or got out.

they were landing as short as I could land my 172 - amazing.

For the money that lens has great iq as seen here. Never took one up on an A2A so I can't say for sure if the heavier lens would work better or not. In theory it should though, but you have to weigh the cost vs reward on that.

+2 - I'll buy the first copy sir.

Here is another Bronco image. Challenged and inspired by a fellow AZ shooter to try some in-camera aggressive framing. Not my comfort zone, but fun to step outside my normal SOP and try something different. Having great light helped encourage my creative experimentation

Jim, Eric is one of the nicest guys I've ever met. He is a huge supporter of Collings and I've always enjoyed every visit with him. He loves our little A-4 and even has a project jet of his own that will get restored by one of the best eventually.
