    I went out to the Santa Paula Airshow yesterday. It's a neat little show for an airport that is celebrating it's 80th year. Most of the airplanes staged out of Camarillo because of the small ramp there and the FAA regs were a little odd. But I love the mountain backgrounds there. Check out the close formation work of the Mustang and the Hellcat :shock: It was incredible.

    :) Great shots and they do look great against the backdrop of the mountains. The difference in the sense of movement from the bi-plane in the 6th frame to the little yellow racer in the next frame is excellent.
    Is that a Yak 55 (?) in the 4th and 5th frames? I'd never seen one live before till yesterday...what an aerobatic beast!
    Thanks for posting these.

    Thanks Derek. The aerobatic plane is the Zlin 50LX. It was built in the Czech Republic. You should see the tumbling that plane can do.

    :shocked!: Excellent work Eric!!!:notworthy: Derek really liked the Yak-55 yesterday. The craft is capable of 23Gs. The pilot wouldn't live through it but the plane would.:)

    A Zlin 50LX....thanks for that info. Aaron's right I did like that Yak...and it looks so much like this Czech plane in your shots.

    Looking forward to more. Thanks!

    Ive been here for a while and I have never praised you on your fab pictures!!!

    You guys are so lucky to have these airshows! When we have "a neat little show " it usually consists of a few Cessnas/Pipers and...If we lucky some T6's. I'v seen a Spit ONCE, doing a fly over at a Motorsport event and that is that. Lucky me and wife are immigrating soon....and I WILL NEVER EVER AGAIN miss an airshow.

    Thanks Eric for bringing these beautiful planes back to life for us less fortunate :)

    Thanks Eddie. I am real happy to have a medium to share the photos with. The internet has made things more accessible and I have fans all over the world, which is still amazing to me.

    A friend of mine caught a cool shot of me in action out there. If you look towards the top left of the photo, you see the airplane I am shooting.

    This is a case of size matters.

    What's the setup you are using?????

    Thanks again guys. For ground to air, I use the Sigma 50-500mm lens. For statics and air-to-air, I use the Nikon 18-200mm VR lens. I use the Nikon D80 for my main camera with the D50 for a standby and for statics.

    Cool pics as always Eric. Love the pic of the Cobra. I'm a complete tool when it comes to that car.
