Viper by Jane Keats
Clear

The F-16 ripped it up at the Avalon Airshow 2009 – yes I’m afraid I went too so brace yourselves for more of these, I am addicted to flying and one day when I win lotto I will get my licence!

I attended with my Mum (who has her pilots licence), we were given invitation passes by my uncle, an aerobatic pilot. Mum’s other brother is a Captain flying for Air Emirates out of Dubai, and her father (my grandfather) started it all. He flew for the English RAF and always had a nice little Piper, Cesna or “Push-me pull-me” around until he got too old to take to the skies safely anymore.

    I’m amazed how close the Youies look – great example of compression using a long lens.
    Great pic all round Jane – got the beast just as it was leaping intot he air.

  • Thank you, I played around a bit with settings that day, trying to get the best in those conditions. Thanks to my Mum who was often holding the umbrella!
