It is amazing to me that these shots receive 500 or so views. I guess we are all to obsessed with 'the big guys's' pics on here, that these are overlooked.

well, if you want us to be less obsessed with the big guy's then maybe you should change the title of this thread!  Big grin

Well, Air2Air just started posting four days ago. Give him another couple of weeks and he may well be a "big name"...

Very nice pictures, indeed!

Isn't he that gentleman who posted here several days ago, who bought *two* Eos-1Ds Mk.II ?

Sorry if I'm wrong

This is one of my favourite shots. Nothing spectacular just a great angle of a truly awesome aircraft. Note the heat haze behind the 'Sled'

Air to air your work make me think of Antoine Roels another amazing aviation photographer who I had the pleasure to meet last year.
He was the official Belgian AF photog and also flew lot of others Air forces thru out the world during his career.
Unfortunately he doesn't post here on a.net, some of his work can be seen on Canon CPS website:

http://www.cps.canon-europe.com/articles/article.jsp?article.articleId=100181
Check them they are awesome.

Thanx for sharing your work, and happy to see something new here.

Cheers

These bastards make me look like sh*t! LMAO Really though, those photos are absolutely gorgeous!! I only wish I had the access and the equipment that they have!! Then maybe I'd have more than 32 in the database!!  Big thumbs up I won't even pretend that I'm not somewhat envious!! Anyway, great shots Air2Air!! Keep 'em coming!!

Speaking of Mildenhall there, Lurch...LOL I only wish I could see a Sled come through here!  Big grin

Nice Sr71 shot.
However the 9th SRW not Sqn flew their last SR71 flight in March of 1990 when the aircraft was withdrawn from service.
The USAF suurendered their last 4 aircraft in 1999 to NASA of which 967 was one.
As you can see from this photo taken in 2000 by the owner of the leading SR71 website SR71.ORG they have done well to get the aircraft up and running again but it wasn't the 9th SRW flying one as they where 10 years into history by the time this photo was taken in 2001.

Nice shots and the aircraft is now located at the 8th AF Museum in Barksdale AFB.

I've had my eye on "Rotor" and "Air2Air" the past few days. Both consistantly show incredible photographical skills. Badlevel... agh! A horizon can be wherever you want it to be, as long as it "makes" the image. Photographers are not perfect, and quite frankly the not-so-perfect shots are those that are in the end, spectacular. Who cares about an unlevel horizon? Normally this site would but that's a whole other story...

Well done, Ned. I'm looking foward to your next uploads!

There is a fine line between a picture and a photo. The latter seems to be disappearing.

Their museum display is second to none! The only other aviaiton museum that I have seen that even rates in my opinion is the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington (state, not DC). Their flying displays are also very good, and in fact I felt that the Duxford displays in July and September this year were better than Farnborough and Fairford! While there were some good displays at both events there as well, I honestly felt the Duxford display was the best of the three.

Yeovilton is pretty good as well - worth the effort. The Duxford USAF museum is impressive, but not, in my opinion very camera friendly - pretty near impossible to get clean shots of anything. Never mind. I go to Dux for the flying. All their shows are worthwhile, but Flying Legends in July is in a class of its own.

The spectacle and sound of upwards of 40 aircraft with SERIOUS piston engines scrambling for a formation fly past is, well, indescribeable.

And Ned, yes, lovely shots indeed.

Cheers,

Colin
