RIAT Fast Jets

RIAT Fast Jets

Postby richyrara on Sat 19 Jul 2014, 7:20 pm

I visited Rhymes Farm on Saturday and Sunday afternoon... the weather was quite changeable and rather than try to photograph everything I concentrated mostly on the fast jet displays.

As last year I thought the Italian Typhoon display was a lot more photogenic than the RAF one, although the weather at the time will have had something to do with it. I experimented with stacked extenders (2 x 1.4) on the 500mm with the Italian Typhoon and was surprised that the results weren't too bad.

The Fitter and Reds shots on the runway were taken through the fence.

Thanks all.

They were all handheld except the Typhoon which were using a tripod (cos it was at 1000mm). The others were with the 500mm and 1.4 except for the two runway shots which were with the bare 500 f/4 shot through the fence.

Surely it's 1400mm if the 500 was x2 & x1.4?

Either way, very nice!! :clap:

Two 1.4 extenders... (actually 980mm but I won't tell if you won't :wink: )

My error, thought you meant the x2 & x1.4 stacked ;)
