The second annual California Capital Airshow is June 9-10 at Mather AFB. Is anyone going from Sac area?
I went the first time, but didn't have good gear at the time, I hope to do better this time.

Hey, I am game, today I put in for my media credential. It should be a hoot. Specially when the USAF is around with their shiny Thunderbirds. (Nothing wrong with the Navy, but sailors do belong at sea ;) ).

What are the advantages of media credentials? Do you get the prime spot during the shows/races and have a right not to be bothered by security?

LOL, I wish. I am using a rented Bigma right now, and so far I prefer the 100-400L...

I can only imagine the shots you'll get with the Bigma. Hopefully they'll have some good stuff at this airshow :) The F-22 shot in your avatar is awesome!

Yea, it is pretty good when the light allows and I can get a good grip on it, but I think the 100-400L images are a bit sharper and I like push-pull better. I just am having trouble with people saying the 100-400 is a dust sucker. Plus the extra 50 on each end is pretty sharp on the Bigma. I will post some samples later...

Have you been to the Salinas International Airshow? I went on 05 and took my little 28-135. The FA-18s flew so low I got a few decent photos with the lens. I can't wait to get the 70-200 out for a test drive with the 2X.

Yes I will be there along with several other fencecheckers and ISAP members.
This was a hot show last year and one of the better of the season. But there was not enuf chow and the lines were hecka long, So I hope that they have figured that out, and done some corrections. I have out in for credentials too but have yet to hear anything.

My buddy Sergio, and I think Sagar both fencecheckers will be there as well.

if anybody is interested the best in A/C photography can be seen at www.fencecheck.com (external link).
