This past weekend, I was an invited VIP guest of Arcadia Aerospace, at the
2012 Florida International air show. This meant I got to park in the AA lot, on the
ramp, next to the flight line, got to enjoy food and drinks in the AA hq building,
and got to watch the show, in a private tent, right at the flight line. I have been to
this air show many times, and this was the best!

After the VIP show Fri night, one of the Areo L-39 jefs, had an incident on
approach and landing. This caused the entire L-39 portion of the BLACK
DIAMOND JET TEAM to remain on the ground on Sat. The 3 other L-39s
did perform on Sun, with the teams MIG-17s.

I have over 2,000 photos, and have just put up a few so far.
Many more to follow, so remember to check back.

Lucky you to be so close to the flight line. Number 3 is very nice, and 5 is excellent!


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

Your shutter speed on the props is to high. What did you shoot at for those? I would recommend nothing higher then 1/320th for props. When shooting planes try and stay away from shooting the belly of the aircraft. One of the few aircraft I like shooting the belly is the F22 as it does a pass usually with its weapons bay open.

The Heavy Metal team would have been good if we got to see the top not just belly.

Nice capture on the Blues in their opposing solo.

Just my thoughts on the pics.

Thank you all.

Thanks for the C/C and info on shooting prop aircraft. I was using the 100-400L
for an airshow, for the first time, and I was afraid of blurring the shots. Will try
slower shutter speeds, next time. I do have lots of 'non belly' blue angle shots stay tuned.

The Heavy Metal Jet team is now the Black Diamond Jet Team. They did an
amazing show Fri evening at the VIP event, but upon landing has an incident. It
really shook them up, and they choose not to fly any of the Aero L-39s on Sat.
The remaining L-39s did fly on Sun, but they seemed to not get to low, very
often, and it was a very different show than Fri evening. You will notice they are
one L39 short in the pictures

I have another 1,500 pictures to go through, and will post the updated link to
them, in this thread in bit. I will also be happy to post any pictures right here, as
they are requested.


Here are two

See now when you show the fuselage of the aircraft vs just the belly side? If I recall Opi is the narrator of the Black Diamond Team. He used to be the narrator for Viper West F16 Demo team and recently retired from the AF.

I use a 100-400 all the time. You can turn on the IS for the props if you would like. If the shutter speed is to slow it makes it look like the aircraft is going to fall out of the ski.

No question, you are correct, fuselage is way more interesting tha the belly.
Seemed loke not a whole lot of low flying this time for the L-39s, perhaps due to the incident.

Not sure I understand this one "If the shutter speed is to slow it makes it look like the aircraft is going to fall out of the ski."
The shutter speed thing,it is the prop blur you want to see more of, so a slower shutter speed is good, correct?
Like anything else, learn as I go.

Thanks for the info.
I have tons more pictures coming, and yes, I stopped the prop on just about
every on of them. Now I know for next time.

Good job on these. Try 1/320th as a start for prop blur then, work your way down as you get better. This post has great tips for getting prop blur: https://photography-on-the.net …63081&highlight​=prop+blur
Some of the photos are cropped a bit tight in front of the plane. You want to leave some space in front, so the plane "has some where to fly to".

Radial engines don't actually leak oil, by the way. They just mark their territory!

Thanks for all the help, that is one excellent thread.
Since getting seriously into DSLR about 15 months ago, and joining POTN,
I have gotten nothing but support, encouragement, and whole lot of help
for 'pros' like you all. I am getting better, and enjoying photography, much more.
Thank you all!


I have just gotten through the first 1,200 pictures, and have 1,300 left. Next up,
probably tomorrow, the jets. Many newly posted pictures, from the last 12 or
so hours, see links below.
