    In that case, take a coat, umbrella and boots. That way, it's bound to stay sunny!

    Great stuff Paul !
    Is that first one a 'Texan II'? Very like the Embraer 'Tucano' and the Pilatus PC-21.
    BTW, if you want to improve the 'brightness' of those photos taken in dull conditions, you can do so by using the 'Gamma correction' facility in 'Irfanview'. I've had to use that facility on the photos from the two Cosford shows, due to using the wrong settings on the camera!
    Looking forward to the next lot.

    Looks like a great line-up Paul! One of these days, I'll find the cash, and energy, to visit a 'Stateside' show.

    Terry Paul, according to the EAA's page, that first aircraft Terry asked about is a Beechcraft AT-6

    Captioned above thier photo of it as it was aproaching the ramp yesterday:
    Great shots Paul, keep 'em coming!

    By the way, think we should add the AT-6's photo to Chris' "Sharkmouth" thread? :D

    Man, I envy you guys that live close to events and museums. Great shots Paul. Had I known that there was a Ventura there, I would have asked for some tail de-icer boots photos. And Terry, where might this Gamma option thingee be in Irfanview?

    Eric is there and I think a few other guys

    Why not post a "picture request" and see if they catch it?
