    Hi Guys,

    The NZ Warbirds Dakota stopped in at the airport where I work and so I took these pics after I'd finished. The lack of a tripod hampered the quality, but the lighting gave the aircraft a ghostly effect, being set away from it. The first two are monochrome hecause the reflection of the lighting on the grass turned the underside of the Dak green. The last pic is quite grainy despite the high ISO, slow shutter speed, low f-stop etc; really needed my tripod...

    Total agreement, those are really nice pictures. Be a tough call between "Puff" overhead and a Skyraider
