Luke AFB Open House 2014 : My small collection of photos from my first air show of the 2014 season and my first air show outside of the Pac NW. I felt pretty rusty taking these shots, but I'll hopefully get my mojo back before Seafair and Abbotsford.

2011 Great Georgia Airshow by Aviationbuff Photography : Photos from the 2011 Great Georgia Airshow. This outstanding event took place on October 10 & 11, 2011 at Falcon Field, Peachtree City, Georgia. The show organizers really outdid themselves this year with some of the best military and civilian performers on the circuit. The military was well represented with flight demonstrations by the USAF A-10 East and NAVY F/A-18C Tactical demos along with both Heritage and Legacy flights. The US ARMY Black Daggers parachute team opened the show. Civilian performers included the new Heavy Metal jet team which fly 5 former Soviet bloc L-39 Albatross along with a Mig-17.Team Aeroshell filled the skies with smoke as they soared over Peachtree City and Rob Holland showed why he is the reigning aerobatic champion. Buck Roetman thrilled while performing the inverted ribbon cut. Warbirds were plentiful with a pair of P-51 Mustangs and a pair of F4U Corsairs. When it comes to Mustangs and Corsairs, two is ALWAYS better than one. The very rare Douglas SBD-5 Dauntless took to the sky along with the RAF themed C-45 Expediter and Kate replica Japanese torpedo bomber. Attendance seemed to be very good and the spectators were enthusiastic and appreciative of the performers. This show is very difficult from a photographers perspective as by mid-day, you will be shooting directly into the sun. As a result, your best photo opportunities are during takeoffs, landings and low passes and when the aircraft are around the approach and departure ends of the runway. The trees provide an outstanding backdrop during the low passes as well as takeoff and landings. If you are in Georgia during the fall, you owe it to yourself to check out The Great Georgia Airshow.

2010 Moody AFB Airshow by Aviationbuff Photography : 2010 Moody AFB Community Appreciation Day. Features images of the last demonstration flight by A-10 East Pilot Maj. Johnnie "Dusty" Green. Also includes C-17, KC-135R, Pitts S2B, P-40 Warhawk and Tora Tora Tora replica aircraft. The show had to be terminated early due to a heavy layer of smoke from a nearby swamp fire that settled on Moody AFB. By early afternoon, visibility had been reduced to less than 1/2 mile. Fortunately, Dusty was able to get in his last demo flight before the show closed.

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.
