I can say I wholeheartedly agree, I've got 2 Hahnel batteries which seem to last longer than my Canon ones.


Me too, these are very good value.

Re: RIAT 2019 - Issues

Had a great weekend again in the FRIAT enclosure. My issues are minor I think, but perhaps worth mentioning anyway: 1. Exiting the blue car park was crazy on Saturday. I cannot believe that they had no people managing the queues in some way. Now everybody just drove diagonally across the fields and ...

Re: RIAT 2019

It would be great to have an F-4 do some simple fly by's. I was at the the TWM at Florennes a couple of years ago, where the Greek F-4's just did some simple touch-and-go's or missed approaches. It wasn't a worked up routine or anything, but it was awesome! :yahoo: :rock:

Re: Printer recommendations

You might also consider an A3 printer if you want to put some pictures on the wall as well. A friend of mine has a Canon pixma 8750, which is giving very impressive results. I'm considering buying one myself actually.

Re: Canon 300mm/2.8 I IS issue

Thanks for all the comments guys, some very useful tips there [1] Resetting the camera body(s). I have never done that before, but certainly worth a try. I don't have that many things setup in either camera. [2] Switching off IS completely. Hmmm....that's a tricky one. I have never really understood...

Canon 300mm/2.8 I IS issue

Hi all, This airshow season I have been having trouble getting keepers with my Canon 300mm/2.8 I IS lens. I usually use it with the 1.4x extender (version III) on two bodies, the 7D mk2 or 5D mk3. Normally, this combo is sharp as a tack, but the keeper rate has been very low this year. In the meanti...

Anyone knows if they are allowed to use flares in the display? Saw some footage on youtube where it popped flares at CIAV I believe. Two years ago in Denmark it didn't, and of course not allowed to at RIAT

I'd assumed it would depart on Tuesday at the earliest anyway tbh.


I asked one of the pilots on saturday and at that time they were due to depart Monday.

Re: Nancy-Ochey 30/6/18

Are you still miles from the runway at the show, in 1994 the RATO Mirage IV take off appeared from behind a hill! Distance was quite alright in my view. The runway can be seen in the image of the Alpha Jet. However, there are some 'bumps' here and there that obscure the view of the runway. So, a cl...
