    Just wanted to see some or your heritage and legacy flight photo's. It still amazes me on how the crowd line gets packed when they fly these at shows. The fans really enjoy it alot. My hats off to the performers keeping those big jets stacked in tight. great job guys.

    apperently I cannot download photo's at this time so mine will have to wait.

    I guess it did work sort of. Alittle to big and fuzzy but it worked.

    You have to resize them before you upload them. I usually set mine to 750 pixels wide, and that seems to do the trick.

    Hmm...Heritage and legacy flights? I have a few of those. ;)

    I am still waiting to see the RAPTOR first hand. I really think that it's just a thing of beauty for the jet erra. Maybe someday soon it'll come near my location.

    If I'm not mistaken, this pic is of a father and son team at thunder over michigan this year.

    That's Jim's shot, not mine. I did stop the prop on the Seafury though. I think that was about 1/1200 of a second. That was earlier last season, when I was shooting with some different settings.

    Those shots with the P-51 are similar to what was at Millville this year. Please excuse the $3 K-Mart camera.

    I actually don't know what speed I was on. I was using the sports setting to shoot mutiple shots as they flew by. I have a 2X teleconverter so I have to focus by hand with it so I like to take many shots of the pass so I can keep the ones in focus. What I need is a more powerful lens. My 300 just isn't enough hence the use of the teleconverter.

    Here's another shot of the eagle mustang flyby. I'm trying to clean up my images for a better presentation.
