Shooting at the equivalent of 600mm super telephoto and handheld through the haze of smoke oil as the airplane almost hangs in the air. With the Fujifilm X-H1 camera body and 100-400mm lens. Braced with the camera strap made for aviation by Vulture Equipment Works.
Always front and center in Air Shows and Aviation, Hangar 24 Craft Brewing on proud display at the March Air Field Air Show this past weekend. And myself there with the Palm Springs Air Museum.
Enveloped by a haze of smoke oil and flown by the extreme aerobatics pilot Jon Melby! The Pitt’s S-1-11B Muscle Bi-Plane has 350 HP, cruises at over 195 MPH, and Jon’s airshow routine is anywhere from 9 positive to 4 negative G’s. Wow!
Visit Hangar 24 Craft Brewery in Redlands CA. “Beer Crafted with Purpose”. And be sure to catch the huge Hangar 24 Airfest coming up on May 19 & 20 right at the Redlands Airport!

You can see all that energy rising from that F-86 Sabre jet engine as it whirls up to taxi out. The man known as the best Warbird Pilot in the world, Steve Hinton, gets ready to go fly in the March Field Air & Space Expo this past weekend.
Shot at the equivalent of 600mm, handheld, with the Fujifilm X-H1 camera and the Fujifilm 100-400mm lens. I had it steadied on me with a beast of a camera strap from Vulture Equipment Works.
