[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Over the years, I have taken hundreds of pix of Warbirds display team.
At saturday's airshow, I decided to just watch and enjoy.
That is until I noticed how intimate this formation was.
I was a little late getting the camera on target, hence the rear view.
I think now, I was quite lucky shooting just as one was peeling off the formation.
There was a fourth aircraft immediately behind the yellow one, but to include it made everything smaller and reveals less detail.

Hi Pete.

I think the lateness of the capture has worked out fine, I like the positioning of all 3, all close and about to change directions. The puffs of smoke gives an ageism to the mood, colours and sky have a good mix too, tfs

stv ;o))

Ciao Peter, great timing for a fantastic action shoot, wonderful clarity, fine details, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Indeed, dear Peter, this is a lucky shot! Just found the perfect timing to capture this special moment when the three aircraft met in mid air!
Beautiful colors of the vehicles and nice smoke emitted by them.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Pete, definitely a great catch but I think you can keep them. They are way to close together for comfort..Fiona

Hi Peter,
A great capture indeed. The pilots must have nerves of steel to fly this close. Good use of your tele-lense.
