Congrats Antoine, after several weeks in the "left for johan" Q your shot finally made it And it is a beautiful one!
Thanks Florian. It was a special shot for me as it linked several aspect of my aviation life : shooting, flying, CMF
, a place I am about to leave. Plus, I really like this picture !
Was a pleasure for me to meet you in person at INN and at GVA! Was lots of fun for sure!
Indeed, nothing beets a shooting session under the rain !
" How do you do to Ride the plane, and shoot at the same time?? "
Trim that thingy, it will fly without you on the controls for quite some time
Well, that is true, but I prefer the "can you hold the stick for a moment ?" asked to the person in the right seat (always nicer to have a PAX)
Congrats to the flying Elbonian!
Just love your cockpit shots, in little or big planes:
Thank you. I find it very difficult actually to get such shots, esp. approach/finals. Having a good enough depth field while a short enough shutter release time (remember, moving very fast) is very difficult. Those two shots you plugged
were some of the better I ever got, details inside and outside (the photoshoping session was a pain for the latter, but it was well worth it).
What I have to do to have a ride in the jumpseat nowadays!!!!!!
Frankly, ask the captain. 3 years ago, I did not know there was such a thing as a jumpseat.
2 years ago, I knew that I would never get one (thx to 9/11), then last year, I just asked the captain of my flight, who said yes. Since then, I always ask (while on a European aircraft - avoid asking while on an US one). Incidently, the captain who granted me my first js was Spanish, flying for Air Nostrum
Oh, and being a private pilot helps a lot !
