2011 American Heroes Airshow by Aviationbuff Photography : The American Heroes Air Show is a helicopter–only event designed to promote rotary-wing aviation’s role in law enforcement, public safety, communications, Search & Rescue as well as homeland security and national defense.        
The event was held on 9/10/2011 at Heritage Park in Canton, Georgia USA. This is a great venue to get up close and personal with civilian and military helicopters and is excellent for photography with good lighting through much of the day. In fact, this is one of the few aviation events where a long telephoto lens will not be necessary as most of the photo opportunities are best addressed with a wide to medium telephoto lens. Be prepared to practice your slow shutter speed shots as helicopters like the Robinson R44 are best shot at 1/20 to 1/60 to create the desired rotor blur.

2011 PDK Good Neighbor Day Open House & Airshow by Aviationbuff Photography : Photos and brief from the 2011 PDK Good Neighbor Day Open House & Airshow which took place on June 4, 2011 at Atlanta/Dekalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK). A fun and enjoyable event, the Good Neighbor day show is easy to get in and out of and has plentiful parking & food as well as additional entertainment for the kids. This show featured an excellent lineup of civilian performers including: Team RV, Skip Stewart, Gary Ward, Greg Koontz, Chris Darnell in the FlashFire II, Greg Connell, Pat Epps, Larry King, Buck Roetman, Mark Sorenson & Jeff Moss as well as the Army’s Black Daggers skydiving team. The flying was excellent but the temperature was brutal for this early in the year, topping out in the high 90’s by mid-show. This kept the attendance under last years record numbers. On the day of the show, I had an early morning assignment to photograph the Team RV members before the show began. When the photo session was finished, I was offered the opportunity to ride along for the morning flight. My pilot was Jerry Morris. Jerry is an excellent pilot and a great host. I was able to grab some air to air shots which are included in this gallery. This was my first time in an RV and found that the bubble canopy offers great visibility, but it also casts a good amount of reflection from everything in the cockpit. I will remember to wear dark clothing the next time I am photographing from an aircraft equipped with a bubble canopy. For photographers, the lighting at this show is problematic for the high altitude passes earlier in the afternoon. By the time the headline performers are flying, the lighting is pretty good. This venue is also one of the few where you can capture a lot of the flying action with a 200mm to 300mm lens. By the way, I shot all of the flying from the control tower with my 80-400VR. While I was a long distance from the action, it gave a unique perspective to a number of the shots. I must give special thanks to Travis Reynolds for the wonderful access to the control tower and Kari Morris of Team RV along with the entire team for their help and generosity. Photos were taken with Nikon DSLR bodies and lenses. All photographs by Chris Buff of Aviationbuff Photography, located in Suwanee, Georgia USA.

2012 Wings Over North Georgia Airshow by Chris Buff : A gallery of photos from the 2012 Wings Over North Georgia Airshow. This event was held at the Richard B Russell airport in Rome, Georgia Sept 28, 29 and 30. The RCAF Snowbirds headlined the show along with an all-star cast including: Mike Goulian, John Klatt, Jerry Jive Kerby, US Army Silver Wings, TAC Demo F/A-18F Super Hornet, Kent Peitsch and many others. The weather started to go downhill on towards the end of the Friday show and the weekend brought heavy clouds. That said, it was a fun and exciting show and I look forward to the next show at this venue.
