Excellent! I have done a few air-to-air shoots with Tiger Moths and it's not easy. You are harnessed into your seat, so have two twist round. Then there is the wind and vibration you have to contend with, so you have to use a high enough shutter speed to cope with all that, but not too high so as to freeze the prop. You have done well! :clap:

Thanks. yes the twisting is a bit difficult and I was worried about the shutter speed because you're not really sure how successful you have been until you get them on the big screen

Lovely.Peel away shot (#2) is gorgeous.
If a man speaks when he is alone in a forest and there are no women around to hear him, is he still wrong?
