many thanks, the Gripens only shoot at the A target, too far for me as I used a 300mm lens (some with the 1.4 x converter)

I'm curious about the equipment used to capture these beautiful images. I was at Axalp several times, but a 300mm +1.4 X converter seems to me very little to get shots so close ...

I used a Nikon D300 with a crop factor of 1.5 x and I was on the south side where the swiss pilots are authorized to pass over the ridge at min 20 m/gnd....

Thank you, understand. I have always taken pictures from the "public" side.

Some pinging light and great angles in these shots. I don't actually know how you took shot 6 and lived to upload the photo though!!

Sorry to break your heart but there will be no AXALP 2014 due to the AIR 14 airshows at Payerne on August 30th-31st and September 6th-7th.
