Hunter Valley Airshow 2017
End result of a wheels up landing. No fire truck so pilot error. I went to this airshow for this and the Hawker Hurricane. I saw & heard this landing. Too shocked to pick up the camera. UPDATE 4-May-2019: Repair in progress & will be flying at Tyabb in March 2020
Heat haze, more than 30C at 9am, plus residual fog !!! not smoke, contributing to lack of resolution. This is making a 600mm lens on a Canon crop sensor, being the equivalent of 960mm, a bit of overkill. OK up in the air but across the airfield is almost pointless, Yep it reached 36C in the shade and more on the ground in direct sunlight. Before the show ended a nice cold beer in an air conditioned pub absolutely made sense so off we went for a frothy or two.
