Ex Zenith

I was lucky to catch 3 of the 4 Wildcats present for this exercise, and the weather played ball as well.

Usually when I'm photographing these exercise events, I'm trying to get different shots, and one of the things I try to get is shots with the strobes on. Normally I struggle a bit with those, but for some reason I seem to get plenty of strobes on Wildcats without trying. I put this shot up as I think I have every external light showing except the rear nav light.

Excellent shots Danny. I especially like 5 and the last one with all the lights on.

I find it nice seeing your backgrounds. Unlike in many others posts, which are all just zoomed in and giving a close up, which can be achieved at any air show.

Great to see the Army Wildcats - a type that doesn't seem to be photographed that often.

Great shots, love the backgrounds, they add context. Love the Wildcat, looks like a proper military chopper.
