Anyone going out to photograph that F9 A319 + F16 ('s) flyover at Coors Field on April 12?

Would definitely be a rare shot for the database.

Can you provide the info, cuz I, personally, haven't heard ANYTHING about it.


I agree though, it would be a once in a lifetime shot!

Dude, where did you hear about this? Seriously I think you just took all the DEN crew by surprise with this one (except maybe, Tim). If the flyover is the usual one, West to East over the scoreboard then a quick left to avoid buildings, then photography might be a bit iffy unless you actually plan on being at the game. The only place I can think of for a decent shot is the Light Bulb supply that is just outside to the west (beyond left field, a couple of McGuire's homers have hit it), but you won't get good shots with the plane and the stadium.

But seriously, anyone who can get that?

Thinking about this event, I cant help but wonder if the A319 is doing the fly-over and the F16's are just escorting it. Since you say the buildings are very close, can you imagine the average Joe walking in the downtown area seeing an airliner flying that close to the city? At least with the Vipers, it might ease the minds of these type of people a bit.

Vitaly,

You are probably better off shooting it from outside the field as your view wont be limited as much as it would be in the stadium.

I was at the Holiday Bowl and 4 Jarine Hornets flew over, two were in afterburner. I sure do wish I would have had my camera for that one, but, my position might not have been the greatest for a photo.

I'm sure the other guys got it covered, I only have a 180mm lense, the others got a 400, 300 and somewhere around 300.

The COANG F-16s do the fly overs for everything in Denver. Having a Frontier airbus is a bonus. Don't expect it so low that it will blow hats off people up top.

If I shoot it, it will be from somewhere outside the park so I can get the whole thing in, park and planes. I have no interest in baseball.

Ha! Geog1992... I remember those days. Probably my most boring class ever at CU. It was horrible!

I will be there one way or another... It has been a rumor for a few weeks but they just confirmed it on our employee site. Anyone know if that is a part 91 flight? Please let it be a part 91. If so I think they will need some extra weight on that bird to stay in trim.

As flyovers at Coors usually go, they usually come up over the scoreboard on the northwest side, overfly the outfield (center to rightfield), and out, banking away from the downtown skyline. If you were to get pictures from inside the park, the best place to be would be on the first base line, up high, around section 325. With a decent 50mm lens, it should make for an interesting shot.

Jeff, Where outside will you be shooting from? Lot A? I'll bet you can get crazy angles from lot A as the jet banks to the left, with downtown in the background.

Should be exciting to see the pics.

I thinking more like I-25, or one of those old loft apartment buildings... That will put the ball field and the city in the frame all at once, and late in the afternoon, the sun will be behind me or just off to the side.

Actually, Jeff, not too far out from the stadium (left field) and across the railyard their is that old loft, about halfway between the stadium and I-25. From there you might get a good picture, but if you are going for the stadium and the airplane in one shot, then from there all you will get is pretty much the stadium and Grizzwald's Ass. If I could get up there (damn I wish I could), I'd be either in lot A, the RTD lot above lot A, or possibly 22nd street.

From 22nd street you might be able to get a good shot of the plane while you are looking through the lighttowers.

Just a thought, and yes, as far as I know, cameras are allowed into Coors Field.

Safe to say the flyover will be just before the opening pitch, around 1600 or so? I'm going to be out there (not at Coors). I may do some scouting for good locations in the next few days.
Let me make sure I have the general flight track down. Typically, a flyover at Coors will be from the NW, over the field, and a left turnout to the north, or northwest probably? Should be a good show! Hope the weather cooperates.

Craig, when they come over the stadium, they usually come in from center field, pass over center and right field, then on over LODO making the turns to avoid downtown. If you are in the stands in rightfield, the planes will be almost directly above you.

Hope this helps you guys get some good stuff.
