Aircraft... B-25's at Paine Field with A700

A700 + Sigma 50-500

I was shooting from the West side of the field instead of the East side (my usual) at the museum. You get closer to the aircraft by half or more but maybe too close as they go over practically overhead and it is almost impossible to track the aircraft without spinning around, getting vertigo, and falling down (came close). The sun is also not quite to my side of the aircraft as they fly a south to north pattern from out of the sun. These are huge aircraft compared to the fighters I have shot here. Plus a weather system is coming in so we have cloud at the south end and blue skies at the north end. An interesting challenge.

First, the Flying Heritage Collection's North American B-25J Mitchell
