Very nice! I would caution you from stepping in front of an airplane during an engine runup, it the brakes fail, or it jumps the chocks, you could get shredded. It does make for a good shot though.

I am guilty of the same thing. I did it 2 weeks ago with the Hellcat. I knelt down directly in front of it during a maintenance run-up. After I snapped the shot, I thought "That wasn't too bright!"
 
:lol: I sometimes forget the element of danger for a good shot. One time I was sidestepping while looking through the viewfinder and walked right into a (fortunately) stopped prop! I could hear the snickering behind me.
 
but only cos your head would've been shreaded into bits :lol:

great pics there, i'd love to go see the BBMF at coningsby, i'd love to see them anywhere actually! i've been to 3 airshows where the BBMF (including the city of lincoln herself!) where supposed to put in an appearance, the weather stopped them everytime :lol:

Same thing has happened to me, it is so annoying!
 
well obviously with aircraft like that they have to be very picky about the conditions she's flown in, the crews get very annoyed about it too...........
