The Air Force Thunderbird group is in town this week end for the bi-annual air show at Hill. I love this stuff so I just could resist snapping a few pictures. Bare in mind that because I changed cameras my longest lens in only 135 mm. So all of these pics were shot at 135mm. I shot these all a 400 ISO and f5.6 so I could get a nice face shutter speed for these pics shutter is in the range of 1/6400 to 1/8000th second. Yea, that’s fast! I probably could have reduced the ISO a little and increase picture quality a bit. I really like the shot where you can read the USAF on top of the wings. I’ll have to admit having a dramatic sky for a background really makes a difference.
There were also a number of other flying demonstration including the group I’ve included here. The most amazing one was the Red Bull stunt pilot. I didn’t take any pictures of that for a couple of reasons. First there was not way to really capture what he was doing and I could stop watching. He was amazing!
