Re: Giant scale Vulcan (4 turbines / 20 feet wingspan). Filmed in UltraHD/4K

That's impressive. I've seen still photos of it on one of my photography forums but that's the first video of it. Doesn't need a lot of runway to take off based on the video. I'll have to post some photos from Jet event I just attended once I get the albums on line.

Re: RCAF announcement says the Snowbirds are ready to perform.

Re: Kingston Air Show, Ontario September 9-10

I just found this which looks like the performances will be part of Kingston's big party to celebrate our 150th Birthday. You need to scroll down a ways but it has the time of the performances listed at where that will be (I think).

Re: Canadian Forces Snowbirds 2017 Schedule

Absolutely better safe than sorry. No use risking an accident which could be a far worse fate than missing some shows.

Re: Canadian Forces Snowbirds 2017 Schedule

Having watched them perform several times I can say that their performance at Wings over Gatineau (pretty sure that's their first performance this year) wasn't as precise as in other years.

Re: Prop blur, what are your thoughts.

i don't think any of this is a hi jacking so no need to worry there. I don't know if this will help but I wrote it a while back hoping for a bit more input from the Nikon camp (for the differences in terminology) & it was wrote for model aviation but almost everything is valid for full scale except ...
