Aircraft Photography

I recently spent a day at the ‘Spring Air Show’ at the Imperial War Museum Duxford. I haven’t been to an air show for a few years so being an ex member of the Royal Air Force I was really looking forward to the sight, sound and smells associated with turbo props, jet engines and burning aviation fuel. What’s more now I’m ‘a photographer’ and have a new Nikon camera it was a great chance to take some photo’s. (It’s all very sad I know – maybe it’s a boy’s thing)

I went to the show with a photographer friend, Joe Dormer, (who for some strange reason shoots with a Canon!) (but he did buy me lunch so I had better not say too much) It was a great day out with some excellent static displays in the morning followed by the flying display in the afternoon. Though sadly due to the ash cloud from Eyjafjallajoekull Volcano in Iceland, aircraft from RAF Coningsby were grounded and unable to make the show.

I must admit I was a bit out of practice at ‘panning’ so trying to photograph some of the aircraft streaking past at anything up to 200 – 300 MPH did prove to be rather difficult.

Anyway I had a fantastic day out and came away with what I think are some pretty good photographs, see what you think.
