I'm trying to get a trip to MAKS sorted out - I know I'm late to the party but I didn't want to make plans before I was absolutely sure that work/life wouldn't get in the way. As it stands, I may not even get the travel arrangements done in time, given how late I've left this.
Anyway, I have a couple of questions for anyone who's going this year or has been before.
1. Accommodation - any recommended places? Should one prioritise locations closer to UUBW or is transport to/from the field not a major issue?
2. How good (or not) is access for photography? What sort of lenses (focal lengths) are recommended? My longest is a 100-400L, but I shoot most frequently with a 70-200 4L IS, so I'm hoping these will be adequate.
3. Is there any access to the field a day or two prior to the show? I'm assuming there will be some amount of practice flying before it formally opens, so it would be nice to catch some of that. If not on-site, can any action be captured from outside the field?
I think that's about it...
