It's been a year since I've been able to get to an airshow and I'm happy to have made it to the Miramar show this weekend. I got lucky with the Raptor this time and have, finally, gotten some halfway decent shots of it.

All shots with my 40D and Bigma.

Lighting on #1 is sweet. All look a bit blurry, compression maybe?

Super shots, the first one with the internal weapons bay wide open is amazing! Never seen that before :) (I feel a little like I'm reading a Hustler Magazine :shock: )

Nice shots. They look pretty sharp to me too.

Exceptional shots, what a plane!

They still print that? The B-58 was obsolete decades ago! One mean looking bird, though! ;)

Thanks for the comments everyone :) I had a lot of fun with this plane and was just amazed by what it can do. Too bad they won't show us all of what it can do.

Here's another one from the show.

Nice shots! I have some very similar, but from a different show. No point posting them now! ;) :lol:
