    My boy and I went to the March Field AirFest on Sunday the 20th, we got there about 0715 but we couldn't get in till 0800hrs. We still got great position. There weren't as many people as at the Chino show and there was way to much time between exhibition. It was sunny, just a little hazy and about 103 on the tarmac. All and all it was pretty good but I may skip next time.

    Here are some shots taken, hope you enjoy :D

    Thanks guys, I'm glad you like them. Here are the last of the series. The one shot of the passing Thunderbirds, unfortunately I was focused on the aircraft behind before the pass, figured I would pick that one :D

    Nicely captured shots, Merv. :thumbleft: The lighting at that show is always a challenge, but you did a nice job with it.

    Thanks everyone :oops: The shot of the four Thunderbirds in a row was difficult for me, I had to take a side angle shot with that 500mm lens. I wasn't use to that :oops:
