For now only two shots - more to come. I don't have enough strength to pick more. It was two long days (over 14hrs) in over 30 Celsius degree all of the time.


Both caught during low flyby. So 20-30m above the ground at maximum speed.


Enjoy the most beautiful acrobatic plane that exists - Extra 330SC.



Body: D500

Lens: Nikkor 70-200mm at 200mm

Aperture: f/5

ISO: 50

Exposition: 1/500s (first day was shot on 1/250 but I was too exhausted to leave it so slow for the second day)

Given the distances and speed of the subjects involved you captured superb detail and a good SS to capture movement in the prop. For me the advertising graphics add colour and interest though to some extent mask the true outlines of the kite. Perhaps a bit like commercial aircraft whose outline that can look so very different dependent on the company colour scheme..?


One has to be very careful in determining THE most beautiful this that or the other as it can lead to issues with others who may hold STRONG views...(-:  Of course my dear lady wife is undoubtedly THE most beautiful creature on the planet...(-:

Great pictures.  I like 'em both.

The smoke trail on the second one is nice.

I agree with Geedee about all the logos on the planes - yuk.

I'm reminder of that Sea Vixen in Red Bull livery - hideous !
