Thanks Lance.

I wish I knew it was on as I may have tried to get to see it.

My brother was in the airforce and was at Williamtown in the mid to late 80's, a Flight Leiutenant at that stage from memory, but I think went on to be a Wing Commander. He has now left the services.

I'm still sorting out what I need to send to the editor. Shot around 2000 images.

The D800 performed very well even at 700mm with the 500 fitted with the TC14. AF was right on and never slow. Only the fps was slow.

Great to know.

Lance, I was at Willy from more or less 1977 through to 1989 except for tours at Butterworth between 1979-1983 (75 and 3SQN) having spent most of my time at Willy in 77 and 2OCU on the Mirage, Macchi and Hornet  as well as 76 on the Reserve on the Macchi.

Many of the images and videos that I shot for the RAAF in that time are still used today.

I now live near Amberley although you can't get near that place these days as it's grown so much and security tightened a bunch.

I heard about the show through my editor and the RAAF web site.  Next stop is Avalon next year.  I may have also got myself a new assistant as well but lost the use of D3s and 80-400 in the process though!
