The Shuttleworth Collection houses many historic aircraft which are mostly kept in an airworthy condition and fly regularly. I visited one of their evening flying displays last night - a beautiful summer evening with flying between 7 and 9.15. Here are a few shots, all with the 70-200 VR +TC-17e.

The light was going towards the end and I had to go to ISO 1600 eventually. It's also the first time I have ever tried this kind of shooting, so I'd welcome any comments or critiques.

Sweet captures, Mike. I have always been interested in aircraft, especially military aircraft. The Chicago Air and Water Show is about one month away and I plan to be front row and center for both days plus the rehearsal. Thanks for sharing such great aircraft images.

Thanks Guys. I really appreciate your comments. It was the most fantastic evening and I hope my sense of enjoyment comes across in the pics.

It was not even spoilt by the fact that there were at least 4 other people here with lenses bigger than mine.

Mike,

I think the 4th one is an Extra 300.

Excellent shots. I like the Avro the best.

Thanks,
