Once in a lifetime..
Every now and then one is able to enjoy very special events. This past weekend was one for me. My family and I attended the biennial Wings over Wirarapa air show. It was special in many different ways, the Mosquito, Avro Anson, Venom, six jet formation, the list is quite long. So to start off here are a few of my favourite (of the 1500 or so shots)!
DH 98 Mosquito F Mk 26, DH 115 T.55 Vampires, DH 112 Venom
DH 98 Mosquito, Spitfire Mk IX, Spitfire Tr IX, P51D Mustang
6 Jet Formation, L39C Albatros (x3), DH Vampire (x2), BAC Strikemaster
De Havilland parade, DH60G Fox Moth, DH82 Tiger Moth, DH84 Dragon, DH83 Fox Moth,
DHC-1 Chipmunk, DHC-2 Beaver, DH 115 T.55 Vampire, DH 98 Mosquito
I was also able to meet up with keenlearner (regular DPS poster) at the show and swap stories and aides on photography. What a magic weekend it was.
I hope you enjoy.

Very nice We were stuck in the American hot dog line when the jet formation was flying by and I didn't get any shots where they weren't facing away. Wish I'd known a few DPSers were there, I would've taken a few minutes to say "hi"Nikon D600 | D90 | Sony NEX-3

Something is amiss with that Mustang though.
Love the jet shot though.
