A few shots from Clacton Airshow 21/08

A few from the Thursday airshow at Clacton on Sea, with the 2 Lancasters and the Vulcan

I think I had the metering set all wrong and I found myself setting the exposure compensation a bit high to get detail of the planes. Also not very good at holding a 70-400 steady, so I raised the shutter speed a bit and got frozen props with the Lancs.

But anyway.. firstly a couple of wingwalkers on 1940's Stearmans.

Then the Vulcan came in low and loud ..

Followed by the 2 Lancasters and their fighter escorts ..

Who's that in the mid gun turret?

I need much more practise, it's not as easy as I thought.

Any tips/criticisms gratefully received. Thanks for looking.
