Just go after D-Day and the Olympics...
.
Denmark would be so neat...Have fun.
They put on pretty good shows and flying, maybe even get them inverted for ya...Wouldn't that be cool.
.
I'm shooting F-16's in a few weeks then a white/black tiger F-5 this summer, can't wait...Love seeing the jet's painted with cool colors and with tigers painted on them.

With which company are you doing those air-to-air shoots, Douglas? Sounds interesting.

Hi Rodolfo, it's Aviation PhotoCrew based in Europe. The head Eric is a Belgian, nice guy. Apparently they are well known in the circle.

J-A, looks like I may do an air to air shoot with them at the Danish Air Force Show in June! I have been told there should be a fair number of military join-ups, F-16, maybe F-35, and others. It will be cool to shoot some European fighter jets that we don't get to see in the States.


Ow that's cool, I'm in Germany then visiting the Tigermeet and a quick trip to Berlin.

If the weather cooperates you won't be disappointed.

250 miles from Schleswig AB to Berlin, 4.5 hours by auto, here in Texas that is a day trip!

Of course you guys have the train making it much quicker and relaxing with water and snacks included. (The train from Hamburg to Berlin included snacks.)

Yeah, I thought William Manchester's three book biography of Winston Churchill was long, the first book is 881 pages, I haven't begun the second.

Now you reminded me, Bill. June 6, 2024 will be the 80 anniversary of D-Day! It is going to be a big ceremony there I figure. Too bad most of the living WWII vets are 100 plus or minus. I have visited Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery in Normandy, not something I will ever forget. Thursday June 6 will be my first day of air to air in Denmark, and second day will be Saturday June 8, if everything is confirmed.

Worked on a couple files today, Rob Holland, F-18 demo, Quick Silver and Gunfighter.

I guess he didn't want to mess around with the two hornet. Here is another one when he was being a good boy.. he didn't stay very long behind the back door of the skyvan before he moved to the side to let other photographers to shoot him through the windows.

Thank you Bill! I was ecstatic about being able to shoot the F-18s in such beautiful light. I think it's my natural reflex to keep the whole plane in frame, unless I got stuck with a prime lens or too slow to zoom out when using a zoom lens. With this particular one, I think I intentionally clipped the wings to get a real closeup shot. It turned out to be an interesting visual presentation. The last two (the two P-51s) were cropped just a bit to keep the images symmetrical.

Here is the high resolution file (36 MP JPEG) on my Flickr page, if you are interested, click the image a few time to increase the resolution after you open it.

My favorite subjects to shoot are fighter jets, warbirds, B-52, B-1 and B-2. Acrobatic guys are great to watch, fun to shoot but not on the top of my list to photograph.

Mr Manchester is not noted for his "short" books Ray! While in college ,and a History major, I dreaded seeing his books on my reading assignments! No "Cliffnotes" on his books did them justice.
