Some amazing pictures eksath! I thought I was getting good Heritage Flight pictures until I saw yours. What camera lens combo are you using?

I use a Canon 1Ds MII with either a 400mm F/2.8 L IS or a 600mm F/4 L IS.

16.7 megapixels full frame is good enough for what I do right now. After 100,000 shutter releases ( I will look into the next upgrade.

Wow, that's impressive that you were able to get that with a 600! I've used the 600, granted it was on a crop frame camera, but the FOV is so narrow that its quite a challenge to get a plane in the frame. And I was doing it with WWI speed planes, not F-18s! How did you manage it?

Thanks.I usually stick a 2x on it for 1200mm but when I shoot airshows i have to use it handheld hence the rivet back to 600mm. It really helps to develop the muscles

Here is one more. This was also 600mm handheld. Next time, i am going to use 1200mm on this shot.

I will be at KSC for the ULF4 (STS-132) and ULF-6 (STS-134) launches. I'm taking my "camera" this time. Thereafter, only one more launch before the Shuttle retires. The place will be a zoo with the public trying to watch its finale.
