In effect my mac appears to wipe my...

Re: How Do You Solve A Problem Like Duxford?

Alot of good and not so good suggestions, i guess the key issue is the layout of the fence line, plenty of corporate tents take up space for joe public, but thats the whole concept, pay more and you have more space, i guess they could move the static airlines back and set up a seating stand or at le...

Autofocus issue

Another one of my many posts when returning from an airshow, just wondering if its common place to get a number of out of focus shots when at airshows or if its just my basic lens. I use the 150-500 and sometimes i get pin sharp but alot of them are out of focus, is this normal and nothing to worry ...

Re: Duxford September Show 2011

I think you expect Duxford shows to be around the same size as Kemble or Waddington, if so you will be sadly disappointed with any Duxford show. Remember also that a capacity crowd at Duxford is less than 30,000, so why spend most of the disposable income from those tickets on the Vulcan when they ...

Re: Duxford September Show 2011

Hoping for an updated list soon! Accoridng to the offical IWM twitter the flying programme for the September and Autumn shows has been finalised. That is such a bad line for a big airshow, it barely fills a page. Was looking forward to this but i think i might go down the road to shuttleworth.
