This is an excellent set, & definitely worth saving!
Thank you, Frank.

Couldn't agree more with the comments already posted. GREAT JOB that would be hard to fault. Looks like you've got some aerobatic pilots there judging by the planes you shot.
Thank you, yes, the Extra 300L does experience aerobatc flights and always seems very busy. The Christian Eagle also does displays as saw this chap display at the Pearce Air show.

Nice set of Pics
if you dont mind me asking - where where these shot from ? the viewing deck above the Royal Aero Club ?
I have a few cool shots of that Extra 300 performing at the V8 round a few weeks back
that RFDS shot is very nice too
Thank you. these were shot from the grass observation area by the cafe (love the chips/fries at the cafe, BTW). It is elevated, as you'll know, and this is great but I'm itching to get down to the ground level of the runway but have yet to work out where such a view can be gained.
Certainly I feel I'd get better shots from a less elevated standpoint, in truth. It would also be lovely to get a view head-on of the airfraft from a lower level, but, again, cannot find such an area that isn't restricted.

Very nice Andrew I might have to join you on your next trip and get some pointers!!
Love the shots of the Extra 300L you can pay them to take you on acrobatic flights if you are brave enough!!
Thank you. I'm always up for meeting new POTNers so would be more than happy to hook up there at some point - it would have to be on a weekend. Do feel more than free to drop me a PM if you do want to meet up, be happy to hear from you.
As for the aerobatics experience flight, as noted above, they do seem to do a roaring trade. Think I'd rather be behind a camera rather than actually in a plane performing aerobatics though (I'd doubtless be thinking of the photo ops for the whole flight).
