    Went to this show today had a great time. They had some fantastic Aerobatics by Radio Controlled Airplanes, WOW. I only got one picture of that. They also had a few classic cars. Hope you enjoy.

    Nice stuff, Ontos. I thought about going to that show, but I needed a break after 5 weekends in a row of shoots. Plus it's nice to spend at least a little time with the fam.

    Nice shots Ontos.
    Your closeups really show the weathering on the SBD.

    Here are three more, I had to crop. Hope you enjoy. Just, within the last year or so I got hooked on aircraft again after a 28 year separation from the aircraft industry. it started when I bought IL2. I did work for Douglas Aircraft from 64-76 minus my two years of service. I will never forget sitting in the cockpit of the Skyhawk on the assembly line, I loved that airplane. Also worked for Boeing and North American on the Space Shuttle.

    The L-29 belongs to Doug Medore. Former Top Gun instructor, his father flew in WW2. I think Doug was flying before he could walk.

    Thanks everyone, I'm new at photography. I wasn't sure what the Jet was, I thought they said it was Checkoslovakian, it wasn't Russian.Thanks Flyboy for letting us know what it is. I was thinking of getting a 2X telephoto lens for my Cannon Power Shot A630, and some philters, the problem is I don't know how to use them :oops: Thank God for digital cards, no wasted film, I get a little shaky on those close up aerial shots. Any advise I can get on photography is greatly appreciated. :D

    Well, my last digital point and shoot before I went to the DSLR was a Canon Powershot S50.

    You can start with an article I wrote a couple of years ago on static shooting. I can provide some other tips as well.

    Thanks Eric, the tutorial is a great help. I'll try some of those techniques tomorrow at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Luck has it, my daughter invited my wife and I to go there.
