In the Cockpit

Post by RFDGuy » Fri Feb 10, 2017 4:03 am

So my all time favorite type of pic while shooting a show is the close-up. Check out the pilots in action while flying. Share your favorites the pilots doing their thing.

What lens is that Dave? The 600 we rent at Oshkosh some years could come in handy for these kind of shots!

The above shots were just the 100-400L.
You are right though the 500 is great for this. Back in the day when Canon was there we had an 800mm we could borrow.
Got this with the 800 I think.

This isn't so much a cockpit closeup, but you can see in the wingman what it takes to fly formation; he's looking at nothing but the leader's airplane, and holding his relative position. (Team Redline)
