B767-300 Refuelling Photo

Hi folks, Some time ago, while surfing on the net, I came across an air to air photo showing a British Airways B767-300ER(Union Flag livery) which was being used on air refuelling trails. It had refuelling pods on the wing and two F18 flying in formation with him... My mistake I forgot to bookmark t...

RE: Shutter Speed

Hi,

Most of the time I use the following speeds:
Action shots(jets)
1/250 to 1/500
Action shots(props)
1/90 or 1/125 - I don't like the frozen props so I increase exposure time, I like the blury effect.

Still/taxi shots
1/125

Hope this helps,

Rgds

Lufti has no A330s indeed and D-AIFD is 100% an A340..

About the engine, I guess it is obscured by #1 engine.. #2 engine is placed on a "lower level" in relation to #1, which might have caused this one engine missing effect.
