Air tattoos 2011

Post by Alpha Star » Sun Feb 20, 2011 1:36 pm

Post here the Air shows your going to this year. Ill start.
This year im going to RAF Fairford air tattoo(International Air Tattoo)
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Well I won't be going to anything, but a friend of mine will be headed to the Avalon Airshow; it's the biggest venue Australia ever sees, with this year's attracting a Raptor over, as well as a Stratofortress, Lancer and about a hundred other aircraft - I'm bugging him to get a decent camera for it, but I doubt he's going to.

I'm trying to find my files for the photos I got there, I can't find them, it seemed like Windows 7 fucking deleted them, I AM SO PISSED OFF!!! :x


But, it was awesome seeing the F/A-18E Demo, I never saw it before.

Let's drag this back up since the season is in full swing.

I went to the JSOH show (see my pics here) and I hope to go to the PAX and Oceana shows in September.

Nice static shots...when I took air shots a while back, I used a Nikon D50 with an zoom lens on manual focus (difficult, but you can get some great shots). I was at the X-Prize cup '07 and took this with those camera settings:

thanks :) my zoom is only 3x unfortunately so that makes it a bit tricky. I'd like a new camera soon. But what airshows do you plan on attending THIS year?
