An interesting day of shooting. Spent some time at Phoenix-Gateway (former Williams AFB .. aka "Willie") and a little time at the local muni as well...

A jet takes off and you're stuck in "Prop Mode" so what do you do?

Great shots as always. I'm going through Citation 7 initial and one of our instructors also teaches the XLS and kept making cracks about how much better the III/650/VIIs are than the XLS. It sure is a pretty airplane though.

Great photos as usual. In pic 3, I got a kick out of the big sign on the mountain pointing out which way Phoenix is.:lol:

Good stuff Jay! I like the T-38! Good to hear that I am not the only one that gets stuck in "prop" mode. Unfortunately my results were not as good as yours in that mode.

Excellent series!

A jet takes off and you're stuck in "Prop Mode" so what do you do?

Good save!
While I usually only shoot on manual, there have been a few times that I accidentally bump the mode dial & don't notice it. So, for anyone interested, I take precautions at events like air shows when I might be shooting a jet on M & a prop job comes by unexpectedly. So I've also set a slow shutter speed on Tv & a wide open aperture on Av, along with the Exposure Compensation (EC) that I think will work at the time I set it up. Then it's just a quick change of the dial to get something usable.
