Re: Foto's: Nederlandse F-35 in formatie met B-2 boven Noord

"I can only see an F-15 on those pictures :?"

And what's wrong with that? All that fancy, high tech and overrated so called stealth stuff without the payload you really need... Gimme that graceful Eagle! :D

Re: Yuma airshow vs El Centro

Hi Dmitri, I visited both airshows last year and although both are nice I think Yuma is the most interesting. More variety in the flying program with F-5's, AV-8, F-35 A and B, V-22, AH-1 and UH-1 and some WW2 planes against the Blue Angles and some demo's from WW2 planes, T-33, F-86 etc. (check htt...

Re: Filter op een Canon 70-200 en/of 100-400

Ik heb een B+W uv-filter van ik meen 70/80 Euro voor m'n Canon 100-400 mrk II gehad en kon hierdoor geen scherpe foto meer maken (onverklaarbaar scherpteverlies op willekeurige plekken op de foto's), dus heb deze er uiteindelijk weer afgehaald. Ja, niet fijn om geen bescherming voor m'n glas te hebb...

Re: EHVK 16-06-2019

Did the Spanish EF-2000 started up from the static line (RWY24L) or where they towed to the north side of the field before start-up and departue? And are the Greek F-4's still on the static or moved somewhere else on the field?

MCAS Yuma Airshow 2019

On March the 9th I visited Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona for their annual airshow. Just like the years before it was a great event with a small but interesting static and a great airshow with the US Marines showing most of their air assets in a spectacular way. 1. https://i79.photobucket.co...

Re: Seymour Johnson AFB 26-09-2011

Hi Bart, I visited Seymour Johnson shortly in 2016 (https://final-approach.jouwweb.nl/2016/seymour-jonhnson). I positioned myself on the Lewis Dairy road halfway the runway for take off shots (https://www.scramble.nl/airfield-guide/goldsboro-nc-seymour-johnson-afb, position nbr 4.) Unfortunately aft...

Eagles, Hornets & Raptors @ RAF Lakenheath

My take on the recent F-22A and F/A-18E/F deployment to RAF Lakenheath earlier this month: http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j144/Dartstaffel713/07_zpsugyrwmse.jpg http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j144/Dartstaffel713/10_zpsylhywv0s.jpg http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j144/Dartstaffel713/15_zpspb6...

Kingsley Field

Hi,

Anybody ever been to Kingsley Field Air National Guard Base to watch the F-15's from the 173rd FW from outside (approach end)? Curious about the possibilities here.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Canon 100-400 mrk II in combinatie met 7D mrk II

Bedankt voor de antwoorden zover! Vandaag weer gewerkt met de combi (100-400mm + 7D) en welke setting ik ook gebruik (1/1000ste sluitersnelheid, met of zonder IS, 400 of 200 mm) het is onscherp. Alsof ik door een doorzichtige sticker aan het fotograferen ben of iemand een veeg vaseline over de lens ...

Canon 100-400 mrk II in combinatie met 7D mrk II

Zijn er hier nog meer mensen die de 'nieuwe' Canon 100-400 mark II lens gebruiken in combinatie met de 7D mark II en ook problemen hebben/ontevreden zijn over de uiteindelijk scherpte v.d. foto's? Erg benieuwd naar jullie mening/bevinding van dit objectief en deze combi.
