Yesterday we had a competition with RC model airplanes which are replicas of planes form world wars. The goal is to cut the tail streamer in flight. The competition has 3 categories, the first one is WW1 in which planes are in 1/8 scale, second is WW2 where planes are in 1/12 scale and the last is EPO class in which wingspan is limited to 850mm (34 in) and planes have to be made of foam (usually EPP (expanded polypropylene)).

Since the judges are scarce I had to be a judge and a photographer.

AndI cannot get the embeded function from flickr to work for album, because there is no BBCode option. :(

You have captured an interesting scene there, the streamers look similar to the flight trails of aircraft adding to the overall effect, though to capture the streamers of a number of aircraft as you have makes the aircraft themselves appear rather smaller in the frame than might be thought ideal....?

 

I have seen something similar with full size WW I fighters pulling dog fight turns while chasing gas filled balloons and trying to burst them as part of a show.

Haha! You had me fooled for a minute there - I thought they were real, full size jobs :)

Agreed. At first I thought it was a photo of real planes. A successful photo gets the viewer thinking. Nice job.

Thank you. Will try to get a direct contact next year, I missed 1 for 0.5 second just when I looked away they crashed :( and crashing is something completely normal.
