Coningsby 30th Apr - D-Day Typhoon display

Post by Viv » Thu May 01, 2014 7:06 pm

completely unexpected, for the D-day Typhoon to be used & the gorgeous afternoon weather. Not many of us there, so thought I'd post some of my pics.

It's a hired 400mm F2.8 prime - this was the first use as well, 7D body - thanks for looking & hope you like :)

It is generally inadvisable to eject over the area you just bombed.

Hi Viv,
Some cracking shots and angles there, think you must have captured every angle possible.
I like your pics a lot :thumbs:
Got to say I really like what they have done with the markings on this Airframe :)
All the best

Thanks much all - was really chuffed with these :)

Craig, I love it !! Yes, it's heavy, & feeling it today after Abingdon yesterday. But the stabiliser really does it's job & well. Only decision is 300 or 400........
