Mine were taken Fuji S2 and a sigma 50-500mm. The lens can be a pain sometimes. How about you, what are you using. I really like the draken and you nailed the t-bird crossover!

I'm using a Cannon EOS with a 650mm -1200mm, usually keep it around 700 to 800mm.
I wish I could go digital!

Who the heck makes a lense with a EOS mount in this size?

Here's one for you. It was really cool watching a C-130 going around the pylons.
Did any one get a time/speed on that pass?
How about next year a match race with the A-10?

P.S. We would wipe the desert with the A-10. There's no contest!

Victor, you nailed that crossover shot perfectly - great exposure in between planes too! Like T. Adams, I'm also curious who makes your Canon lens? Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Les. The lens is made by Phoenix. I posted a reply in the Non-Racing racers thread by accident I should have known better cuz there's a big difference between Non-Racers and Non-Racing racers although some of the Non-Racing racers actually raced the just didn't finish the race they were in. There say that three times real fast while drinking a beer. On the Crossover did anyone notice that the speed brakes are fully open on #6. I have seen this shot a few times by other people but not with the brakes on and not that close. Kinda scarry looking to me. No trick photography or digital funny stuff here. I know shooting around 700mm of lens compresses distance but that's a bit too close.

So that's how they make that maneuver work; I bet the guy with the dive brakes open gets to call the break on the cross, too. Great shot; perfect timing on the capture.

I find it more interesting that the burner nozzle is open wider than the lead bird and if you look at the shape/density of the smoke he has the throttle pulled back quite a bit !:eek:

Without the "drop tanks", bet you guys could hit 400! Imagine the Herc against Big Bossman in the Bronze class. Uncle Sam would be proud! Like the SR-71, I bet your true speed potential is classified! Peas:D
