    Yup that's the plan lots of photos. Will be taking 2 cameras like last time except I'll be armed with the mighty new Pentax K200D which has just got itself a nice new big lense. Hopefully means some decent in flight shots too!

    G'day fellas. Haven't been around the past few days due to life taking precedent and it will probably remain like this for the rest of the year. I did however get to the Pageant this year and it was really good. The Sea Fury was a no show and only 1 DC3 arrived. Still the weather held off was over cast but cleared to a sunny but windy afternoon. As a result the replica Sopwith Pup didn't fly.

    Anyway heres a few shots to get this thread started. I'll throw some shots when I can.

    Cheers.

    Dang, and I thought it was going to be a P-40B or C. Though that shark mouth P-51D looked awesome, as well as that Vampire. :thumbleft:

    Thanks guys, yeah this was the first airshow using the Pentax + the telephoto lens which meant I could manage some decent high res shots.

    More to come.l
