F-86 Waves Of Energy!

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.

F-86 And MiG-15 Dogfight!

Last night at the Palm Springs Air Museum, the dedication and unveiling of the newly restored F-86 Sabre Jet by Museum Director Fred Bell. The F-86 was introduced during the Korean War and was met head on by the Soviet MiG-15. This MiG-15 will be flying today at the Air Museum following a one hour program at 1:00 PM. Be there! I will and with my camera!

Spitfire And A FujiFilm XT-1 Camera…

Some scenes yesterday at the Palm Springs Air Museum doing some photography and a video with a FujiFilm XT-1 camera. FujiFilm has loaned me their new system for a week so I can check it out! I do like the color renditions and the realism in the photographs. The other things I like is the small size and weight. Two cameras bodies and three lenses would easily fit in a briefcase size carry bag. Very Cool!
