    Posted: 24 July 2017 at 16:17
the BIAS 2017 (Bucharest International Air Show) gave me the opportunity to try something different, on a sweltering, canicular day;
I still have a lot to learn about camera settings, but the combination of 70-400mm GII + LA-EA4 + A7RII gave me a few interesting shots.
all advice and comments about what I could do better at a similar event, should I ever find a chance is more than welcome.

#4 maneuvers (YAK-52 I think)


#5 attack angle

I agree completely on the originality - this is a fine series for a first try!

The images with the gliders in them are very unusual - it's not 'normal' to see these flying formations etc. like this but the patterns and gentle, delicate patterns they create are rather delightful (as are the outlines of the gliders themselves - man's version of angel's wings I suspect). Of these I'm rather taken by #'s 1, 2 and 6 for the shapes and the delicacy mentioned; for the others, #4 comes oh so close (I think you needed to leave the shutter another fraction of a second to get a small separation of the planes from the smoke trail), but of the others then #'s 7, 8, 9 and 11 are powerful shots being turned into B&W with a hard-ish contrast to them. The trails stand out really nicely and help show the path of the aircraft very well. The absolute favourite for me I think is #9 - pattern, shape, delicacy of the smoke and the tipping in of the two extreme aircraft makes, for me, a very compelling image.

if this is your first try then you need to go back to another meeting and get some really stunning images!

Thanks for sharing and best regards, Neil.

Fabulous for a tenth try, never mind 1st. As to tens, #10 is wonderful for its unique shape and capture.

thanks for the comments;
here are a few more shots as I process them.
the BIAS present the occasion for the military to strut about and show out their toys:

#12 C-27J Spartan


#13 JAS 39 Gripen, hungarian air forces


#14 Gripen again


#15 F-15


#16 two of them


#17 F-15's


#18 F-16, overpriced second-hand addition to romanian air forces; they seem inordinately proud of them, for whatever reason


#19 afterburner (?)


#20 MIG-21 LanceR


#21 MIG-21 LanceR


#22 a bunch of them, too fast for my zoom-out reflexes


#23 MIG-21


#24 another fast pass over my head


#25 F-16, polish air forces


#26 F-16, none of the images were rotated by me, the pilots seem to enjoy flying like this


#27


#28 escort service, romanian F-16's parading around a Boeing 737 belonging to our national carrier
