This was my first time shooting an air show. I'm mostly a motorsports photographer but the excellent photos that I've seen on here inspired me to try some myself.

1. The museum has one of only two flying Avro Lancasters in the world.

2. MiG-15

3. CT-155 Hawk

4. B-25 Mitchell

Nice one of the pilot. These look like they need a touch more sharpening?

I was thinking the same thing but I don't have a great eye for these things. Thanks for the confirmation.

Wow that Lancaster is not a taxi only plane? When at Dunsfold in England they said the Canadian Lancaster is only taxi-capable. Nice to know another one of these spectacular planes is also airborne!!!

Loving the Lancaster and Mitchell shots! My work PC screen is prehistoric so cant offer any advice on photo quality.

Hi there Racing-Guy, great first attempt at planes! :) Hope to see more of your attempts on here soon! :)

FYI, the plane in #3 is a BAE Systems CT-155 Hawk, used by the NFTC (NATO Flying Training in Canada) which is run out of 15 Wing out in Moose Jaw, Sask.

Where is this Lancaster? I had one fly over my house in Peterborough this Sunday just gone. I spoke to a friend who works in the RAF and i "believe" it may be based near Coningsby in Lincolnshire as she suggested he sees it quite a lot.

Absolutely incredible sound andd sight seeing this thing flying over house knowing the historical importance of this plane.

Yes, the Lancaster flies. It flew three times this past Sunday. I missed the first time and the third time it had to turn back almost immediately. I got some shots of the second flight but I forgot to change my shutter speed after shooting jets so the props are frozen. They are also kind of under-exposed. I'll see if I can fix up one of them and post it tonight when I get home.

I wonder if that was due to the high cost of insurance over there?

I was at an airshow earlier in the year where the Canadian Lancaster was flying. I also have shots of it flying in 2007 at the gathering of Mustangs and Legends airshow. It's a beautiful aircraft, and it appears to be very well maintained.


5D,20D, some lenses and stuff

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Lancaster is scheduled to be at CFB Trenton July 4 and 5 for the Armed Forces Weekend and Air Display (www.cfbtrenton.com/ann​iversary/index.php (external link)).

I am not sure if it will be taking part in the main afternoon air display each day. My reading of the events schedule is that it will only be doing a flypast Saturday morning and then will be on ground display.

It's not at Duxford is it? I went there as a kid many years ago so can't remember exactly but they had heaps of WWII planes.

I'm not sure, i think they have had it visit there. It must be near me as i have seen it flying twice in the last year or so. We have a large river tracked beside a road i used to travel to work. When i was coming to work one day i heard a huge rumble and looked to my left to see the lancaster flying above the river followed in formation by a Spitfire and I believe a Hurricane. Kinda felt like one of those "Back to the Future" moments and was a privilege to see.

Nice photos and I agree a little sharpening is required on some of them.
It is also the first time I have seen a photo of the Canadian Lancaster.

Here is a couple of photos of our Lancaster based here in the UK.

It is based at RAF Coningsby and flies in many airshows here as part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight with the Spitfire and Hurricane.
