    Click on each image to see the optimum sized image. Pardon the dust on my sensor, I should clean it one of these days.

    Thanks,

    Very nice photography, that #213 F/A 18 flew the Chicago show in August as well. Thanks for sharing your shots.

    Very nice captures!!!
     
  4. Thank You, Frank. Yes, that F/A 18 is an awesome bird. Did they fly the F-22 Raptor in Chicago ? I would have loved to capture it.

    Thanks again,
     
  5. Thank you, Mark.
     
  6. Nice shots, Sanjay

    You were in a good position for lighting on these. The composition is very nice, and I love the vapor trails over the wings on those first two.

    The Blue Angles were here earlier this year and put on a great show.
     
  7. Thanks Alan, and you did a great job as well - I looked up your link, and the last one on the first page <7796> is a fantastic shot.

    Thanks,
     
  8. I shot one day of the Chicago Air Show with Frank so I'll butt in here :)

    The F-22 made an appearance in Chicago and was it impressive! It did things that I didn't know fixed wing planes could do!


    Great captures by the way Sanjay!
     
  9. Thanks, jecamera. I am sure it was a treat to watch the Raptor.

    Thanks,

  11. Thank you, Greg. I am still new here, if you don't mind me asking, what is that thing in your Avatar ? Looks like some kind of a gadget, just curious.

    Thanks,
     
  12. Nice shots! We should have met up since I was there Sunday. I think that is part of Greg's BMW Bike

  16. Nice! Love to see the f-18's with the after burners lit. That's a quick way to trim a few pounds of fuel..............

    Cheers

    All your shots are awesome. I personally like the shot of the Superhornet pulling up but I'm biased. Cleveland is a great airshow from a photography perspective, the sun is at your back all day. I was able to go there several times in the early 90's back in my film days and really enjoyed that venue.

    I use the D200, 70-200VR and 300 f/4 AFS combo myself with both the TC-14EII and -17EII and have had good luck with that combo. I'd love to get a 200-400 but I just can't part with $5k right now........LOL
