Red Arrows due at 15.05 on Monday, according to their published schedule. I hope that's helpful.

Re: ideal shutter speeds

Many, many thanks, all. I went down to 1/125th for props last week and lost a lot of sharpness by forgetting that excellent advice about switching between Av and Tv modes! Try again, Peter; try again....

Re: Canon 100-400

Many thanks for some very helpful advice. I took 100s of shots at Sunderland last Saturday with a 40D + 100-400 lens but not many are sharp. It will obviously take time and patience, so thanks a lot.

Nice variety! Freccia 10 landing is good, and I like the ominous backdrop for Swiss J-5014. :clap: :clap:

Re: Saudi Tiff hand over show

An impressive batch :clap: :clap: :clap: ; I particularly like the fifth Saudi Typhoon blazing down the runway :topbombing: .
The puny looking tail chute as it first pops out is quite amusing, too :grin: .

Re: Tornados low fast and furious at Tebay 12 Jun

Absolutely fabulous! I agree with CH2 about the last shot. That should be framed on many a wall. Keep shooting :topbombing: !

I feel the same as you about that rudder, Nigel.

The MiG 29-UB is mighty indeed! I often muse on the fine art of not landing at the wrong angle in those things... :question:

Re: Corris and Cad 2nd -5th June

Lovely shots. I really like the first Harrier shot :tongue: . That loose panel - or whatever it is - looks ominous. Presumably all fixed by now....
I'll head for Flickr to see the rest. Rory's are very good, too. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Re: Bwlch Exit and Cad West 1-5th June

Wonderfully clear, these shots. I agree with Geoff Hibbert that shot 2 - :topbombing: - would take some beating (but then, why try?),
and I love the nonchalance of the wave from the back seat of the Hawk.
Several people seem to have got that angle on the Typhoon, too. Very nice! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hasn't it been a great week? The T1s and T2 with open canopies tell the whole story, I think.
I was there on Monday and have to say I never tire of Hawks. Thanks :clap: :clap: :clap:
