This weekend saw the first big airshow in Massachusetts in several years. Featured shows were the Blue Angels, a Canadian F-18, and an F-22 Raptor. Here's a few good ones that I got. Used a 7D, 100-400L at 400mm, f/8. As always, C&C welcomed.

Here's a full-scale selection of the pilots from the above image, showing where they're looking:

Sweet !

Thanks for sharing them, interesting to see how the pilots are orienting themselves. That is precision flying.

Very nice set. Not that you should know but Canada adds the C to aircraft designations so we call it the CF 18 Demo Team. I've added the link to your photos to the CF 18 Facebook Groups page.

No Snowbirds shots? :)

Good job capturing Cheech in the CF-18 Hornet condensing the vapor around the jet in the high-speed pass, as well as the vapes of the F-22 Raptor.

There are some images here https://www.facebook.c​om …ia/posts/104549​0948813286 (external link) of the Snowbirds in formation with the CF-18 demo jet during a photo flight over Vancouver Island a few weeks ago.

Ask and (sometimes) ye shall receive! Here's just a couple of shots from the several hundred I shot of the Snowbirds. What an amazing show they put on!

I was there too. Seeing the Raptor fly was probably the best part!

Very nice shots! I'll be posting some of my own in a different thread fairly soon.
