wow very cool. Where was this held.
Might have to come over one day but then I would need to buy a lens longer than 105mm
Held at Avalon in Victoria (just outside of Geelong).. And yes, if you want to take pics of planes in flight, 105mm won't get you far at all.. hehe

Great shots! I was there too - we can't have been located too far from each other as we have a lot of similar pics. Was a big weekend for me - Tues & Wed lurking around the boundary of Avalon, Friday & Sunday attending, and Monday again lurking watching departures.
Yeah.. I saw your shots on Whingepool.. I noticed yours were also very similar, and you must've had the same ideas as me, composition wise.. I'm in Laverton, so not that far from Avalon, but CBF hanging around for hours waiting for something to happen.. I was going to to friday, sat & sun, but by the time sat morning came around, and getting 5 hours sleep, the weather outside nailed my decision not to go.. that said, sunday was awesome.. lots of blue skies and it being a bit cool help..

You have some excellent shots there. The full album is worth the time it takes to explore. Is that Melissa Pemberton & her husband in #1 ? I saw somewhere they are doing an act like that.
Bingo.. yes it was rex & melissa pemberton.. it's such a shame tho because on the ground you literally can't see rex at all, so all you see is melissa doing circles.. at least with a long lense you can get a sense of what's really going on up there..

Great pics. Is this the Sigma "Sport" or the "Contemporary" model of the 150-600mm ?
It's the Sports model, I don't think the C has really been released yet.. well, not in any sort of numbers..
I have some WW1 aircraft that i'm currently processing, so will post up some more pics later on..
