For the aircraft enthusiasts
Mar 31, 2013

None of these are particularly great images, but I thought some of the aircraft buffs here might get a kick out of seeing these.

While out in the desert in north Phoenix shooting owls and hawks, I heard a loud droning sound approaching.   Looked up to see a formation of ... ?  Trainers?   12 propeller-driven planes done up in different insignia, including USAF, US Navy, Russian, and German, all flying in a big formation.

I pulled the 80-400 off the tripod and grabbed a few shots with the D800e.   Unfortunately didn't have VR on, and the planes are softer than they should be.   Not very close either, but the D800e sure lets you crop in!

Reminded me of the movies I saw of the attack on Pearl Harbor.   The sound was distinctive.
