RIAT Pictures (loads)

Following on from the few I posted earlier, heres more!!

What a cracking week, the weather conspired to make us damp but also meant that there were some great vapour shots to be had.

A selection of the images from the week













Easily the best display of the weekend















Stunning, simply stunning.







Spot the odd one out!

Brilliant! Think every pic I've ever seen of G-222s at RIAT have those vapour trails coming off the props - an indictment of the prevailing weather conditions at so many!

Love the cap of vapour on the Swiss F-18 canopy!

You going to Farnborough?

See what you mean about the vapour shots - really adds to the whole sense of the forces at work.

Is it just me, or are the AMRAAMS on that US Navy Super Hornet at a fairly obvious divergent angle? What's more - why?

Thansk for the kind words.

Nice shots, MotF. Didn't realise you were there Monday, I'd have come and said hello. I was further up the flight line.

You can see 'my' balloons here www.stevelevien.com/riatballoons04.htm The dog was amazing!

Cool photos. The one with the spirals coming off the props is something I've not seen anything like before!

Prop spirals are fairly common on damp days (great pics MOTF, especially the F-15E departing)





Vintage ATCO: Oh Yus! The Churchill dog squatting on the Jag wing made me laugh out loud!

Saw your name in the programme and nearly gave you a buzz, then noticed a mahoosive Bulldog floating across the Flightline and figured you may be busy.

cracking Herc shot.

RIAT pics

Nick

Oustanding pics from RIAT ol son!

I may be interested in a commercial or barter arrangement for a few of your Hornet pics for a book project I'm working on. Same goes for anyone else who has any recent high quality Hornet or Super Hornet pics.

Please email me at...

[email protected]

...if you're interested.

Cheers

MOTF/Nick

These are quite the finest photographs I have seen of The Air Tattoo this year.

Very well done and thanks for sharing them with us. You should turn professional.

MOTF,

Absolutely amazing pictures, very good quality.

Do you mind sharing what you are using to take the pictures. Are they digital or film. What lens /camera combination are you using?

I have sold my soul to the god of the Pixel, its a Canon D60 with (usually) a 100-400L IS Lens but in a couple of cases I was lent a 500L lens by the very nice Japenese guy sitting near to me in the stand, its an amazing lens but a bit out of my price range.

Great pics RS2. I trust you were there on the Saturday looking at the blue skies!

Be careful with the resize and sharpening tools though to avoid the "jaggies".
