Summer is here (more or less) and that means Duxford opens my air show season.
This particular visit is my first to the museums May show, probably my first of 3 or 4 around the country this year.
In the run up to the show, there was a lot of criticism from regulars about the quality of the lineup that was presented. Whilst this show wasn’t loaded with War Birds, or very much from the RAF participation, there were a number of acts which many hadn’t seen before.
Whilst it was quite acrobat heavy, displays from the Austrian Schlepp, the Franch Rafale C and the Patrouille de France really stood out.
After a lot of thinking and justifying, for this air show season, I invested in a new Tamron 150-600. This show was my real chance to test it out.
I have spent a lot of time since the last air show season studying other photographers and trying to learn my camera to improve my images, which last year I felt were a bit amateur. This year, I think I have started to find my groove with it.
I went to both days, but rather than separate them into each day, I decided to compile together my favourite ones into one post.
It might be a bit picture heavy, but I hope you like them.
Hopefully that will keep you going for a while. I’m heading off to Slovenia for a few days, so hoping to get some pictures of the country while I’m there.
Until then. Thanks for looking.
