    Nice set Minicooper. There is a little private airport not far from me that I am going to go to and try my hand at some of this type photography. TFS.

    Really enjoyed the shots. I think aircraft are pretty cool. I enjoy going to air shows. I live across the Bay and can't wait till the next air show over at Macdill AFB in Tampa. Not sure when it is but I'll find out. You have a nice Sharp piece of glass there. My next investment will be in a new lens. TFS

    Great photos. Number 1 was especially intriguing to me. When I was a child, I constructed a model of a German Biplane...and the directions suggested the exact color scheme that is on the wings of this plane. It seemed very peculiar to me and I have never actually seen a plane with this unusual pattern until now. TFS

    Thanks autofocus, the bad light added to the dramatic colouring of the plane.

    Thanks Paco_x, we are lucky that the Germans had such wonderful colour schemes.
