I have just set up an Airshow Photography group as I thought it timely with Duxford Flying Legends and the RIAT on the Horizon.

Airshows do not account for many uploads on ephotozine, but there are a few of us kicking around so I thought it might be useful to set up a group to share tips (on what time to get up and get to the gates as much as what kit), compare shots and maybe set-up some mini meets.

i am off to Duxford on the 10th and the RIAT on the 17th.

Duxford will be with my dad and son and my son in particular does not leave much time for socializing, but could maybe hook up at the RIAT. If you are new to Airshows and want some pointers I will happily pass on what I know.

Hi Duncan, welcome on board, are you planning to do any others this year?

Steve, meet up would be good. Are you going to be along the flight line on a standard ticket or in one of the other viewing areas?

Steve, Cole. I will PM you my phone number.

Hopefully I will work out how to use my newly purchased 7D at Duxford so I will have my own settings sorted by the RIAT, happy to pass on some pointers if I can Cole.

I aim to be outside the gates not long after 6am to stand a chance of being near the front of the flight line.

I'd like to thank Neil (javam) for starting this group and more recently (tonight even) going through and adding dates to the Calendar which will make it a great resource for airshow photographers. I hope others will start and manage similar groups for other event photography. This is one of the great aspects of groups. Thanks again Neil Smile

No problem Pete.

Not sure the calendar is comprehensive, but it is a start and hopefully gives us something to refer to and may help some more mini meets take shape.

Hi everyone.
New group member here. I spent 25 years in the RAF so I have an inbuilt interest for aircraft. Blend that with my efforts to improve my photography and here I am.
I shall be reading through everything, but I think that's going to take a while. In the meantime, I shall upload one of mine for you to see.
Any comments are welcome, after all how else do you learn.
