My favourite photo from the Amberley Airshow.

[IMG][/IMG]

I would also like to thank all the private pilots who brought their machines to the show. My son and I loved visiting each one and the owners were all very friendly and willing to answer all sorts of stupid questions.

And to the owners of the Jabiru 430 who had a good laugh at my expense when I was trying to get into the pilots seat at the same time as the FA18s did their simulated ground attack which made me jump 4 feet in the air with one leg in the plane and one foot on the ground whilst trying to get my hat off ... well I guess it must have looked hilarious (my kids still laugh themselves to sleep).

p.s. I have decided that Jabs just aren't designed for gents who are 6 foot tall weighing in at 135kg. I guess I will just have to save up for the new Nomad for the carrying capacity.

why did they make an aircraft promoting breast cancer awareness look like a big penis?
A big dog's penis - to be more specific!

The photo of C-206 DRH is indeed ZK-DRH on the Wings & Water (formerly Waterwings) floatplane base on the foreshore of Lake Te Anau, Te Anau NZ. She's a former mount of mine -on wheels & floats. Good to see the old girl looking so good!

One question though, why did they make an aircraft promoting breast cancer awareness look like a big penis?
Perhaps you should see a doctor if its that pink.

Nice photos! Gonna miss the F-111s. Did you get any of the Herc airdrop by any chance? Not very photogenic I know but I would be interested to see it if you did.

Great photos!

Hey Mike.B...those are very nice shots indeed.
Do you mind me asking what camera and glass did you use?

Beautiful shot! With your permission, can I post a copy of the photo on the squadron members private webpage? With full credit to you of course. I would have PMed but wasn't able.
Cheers

Hey Nello. Thanks for your comments. I use a Nikon D80 with a 300mm Lens. Nothing special, just point and shoot and let the camera do the work. Im no pro. Just lucky sometimes.
