Just finished watching a documentary many of you will enjoy.

Spitfire the Plane that Save the World

https://www.netflix.co​m/title/81189396 (external link)

Watch it on a big screen TV with a good sound system if you can.

That really is a beautiful film. I was luck enough to see it in the cinema. Incredibly sad that by the time it was released all the World War II veterans interviewed had passed away.

We are so lucky to at least still have the beautiful aeroplanes that they flew to remind us of the sacrifices that so many of them made.

Glamorous Glenn III

NOTE: Shot at 100mm so image how low this plane was to the ground. I was attending a RC airplane show in Monaville, TX.

So did you shoot any of the RC event? What was the theme of it?

The theme was “Warbird Plane Rally”. Search Facebook for “Bomberfield USA” for more info and some photos.

I did photograph some of the event but I found those small planes really hard to catch in focus. They go so fast and so close to the viewing stand.

Big real planes are much easier!

Sorry about the size, but I didn't have my camera and had to use my phone :-(:-(

Taken on Selsley Common, Stroud. The model has about a 4' span and flies beautifully, but in bright sunshine and no proper camers it was very difficult and just point, squirt and hope for the photo -?-?

My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Mine were just lucky :-P

It was worth being up there for the view across the Severn Valley. Pretty well all of our slope flying sites have a fantastic view!

Plus it was a day when I came back with as many bits as I went out with 8-)

Some have asked me why I have never taken up full size flying. My stock answer is that I have seen just how I land :oops:-?

You did pretty good on the RC side of the event. It's my thing. I've been doing it since 2008. I estimate I've taken roughly 400,000 photos over the years at our events. Yes they're fast & small & harder than full scale but in my area we have 1 full scale air show a year but an RC Event almost every weekend starting in early to mid May & ending in late Sept or by mid Oct. So far all of our events have been cancelled due to the virus but I'm hoping the big jet rally in mid July will be a go.

A warbird & a futuristic one. The green one can fly at 500 KPH in level flight.

The pilots need to give the photographers a few "photo runs" where they fly by super slow. I was really frustrated, but it was also my first time to attend a RC plane show.

At most events many of the pilots will do a few low & slow passes for the camera which is great but as you get better at your panning (the first event each season is usually less than perfect) you get better & better results. On the plus side prop blur can still be quite nice at shutter speeds as high as 1/800 but some of the big gassers land at low RPM's which will freeze the prop. My usual SS is 1/500 most of the time for props, 1/200-1/250 for heli's & anywhere between 1/1000 to 1/2000 for the jets.

We had a lightning strike Sat just 3 houses away which toasted my desktop computer & a satellite dish & maybe more I haven't discovered so for now I'm on a really outdated Win XP computer & can't access any of my stockpile of event photos. I removed the albums from Flickr & donated all of them to the sanctioning body who are supposed to host them once & for ever at a sharing site that won't suddenly shut down or charge fees etc. I've outlived the family tree & didn't want Flickr to delete all the photos when my account suddenly isn't renewed due to my passing.
If you're Facebook user I have lots of albums on line as public using the name Lar Ing as well as under the TimeCapsules Photography name.
