    Thanks Scott, I will surely make it a point to be there next year. I took 405 photos of which I kept 230 about 50% . I guess it is not to bad for a beginner. They sure do move, and the sound is exciting.

    Nice series, Tony! It's been a number of years since I've been to an airshow and the images I've seen on the Cafe, like yours, make me want to find one to attend. Thanks for sharing.

    Well Tony,

    You have definately set the bar high this time. I hope to have similar success at the Chicago Air and Water Show in less than two weeks. You have some outstanding images there...the bi-plane with wingwalker and the inverted planes (Lima Lima?) are my favorites of the series. Great shooting, Tony!!!

    Can't wait for the 20th and 21st...I feel the need for speeeeeeeedddd!

    Hello Frank, Why do i feel we will be seeing some of your great photos in a couple weeks. just get the old D2H greased up. it is a fast moving outing. I used a monopod with my RRS ballhead and sidekick it worked out just great. Along with the 70-200 2.8 VR with a 2x extender.
    Ciao Buddy
  8. Really nice clear shots Tony. You have really captured the essence of an air show. Well done.
  9. These are great shots, Tony! My favorite is the parachutist with the colored smoke.

    Hi Tony:

    These are great. The colors in #3 just pop and #4 looks a little scary but excellent capture. We had the perfect weather that day for an airshow.
