Challenging shoot for your kit lens but you did a pretty good job.I just wished we had airshows like that here.Must be a hell of a fun event to photograph.

Some good panning skills there and a steady hand shooting shutter mode at 1/100s, good job with that lens.


Cheers

Very good shots Chris, the clarity and composition are excellent.

Well done Chris. Agree with all that has been said about your shots, especially given the focal length limitations.

I was going to try and get down to Yeovilton this year, but failed again! I like this show as it feels more "intimate" than larger shows like RIAT (which I'm about to miss :cry: ).
