I used to walk on those stairs back in the 1970s when there were Pan Am 747s, American 707s, Northwest Orient 747s and Western DC-10s flying over.

Thank you. The most difficult on the first one was to capture the exhaust backfire so that the British flag could be lit up on the shark fin. I tried several times, the one I posted was the most acceptable I could get.

You have to click "Check for New Replies" down at the bottom. No idea why it keeps happening to this thread, but I have to do the same.

I see GrahamHill has beaten me to the Le Mans punch, and with probably better photos, too. Eh, that's what happens when I have to begin a summer physics class as soon as I get back from the trip. Not many of mine are sorted and posted yet.
Unfortunately the speed at which this:

Not at all. My pictures could be a lot better and your pictures are great as well. As far as I'm concerned, I'd like to reach the level of those guys, but it's tough, really tough:

Spins are unpredictable, and unless you follow the car with your camera set to burst mode, it's very difficult to capture one.
