Photos from Davis-Monthan 2021 airshow
Posted by oortiz10 on Monday, November 8, 2021 3:11 PM

Hey FSM,

I was in Tucson this past weekend for Davis-Monthan's "Thunder and Lightning Over Arizona" airshow. I'm no pro, but I thought I'd show a few of my photos anyway. Feel free to take a look and share your thoughts.

Photos here: TALOA 2021

Cheers!

Good to hear from you, O - and those are some fantastic shots!  I especially like the A-10 pics - superb!

You may not make a living doing photos, but could fool me.

Great shots, especially the telephoto pics.  Liking the Blackhawk winch recovery.

Great pics.  I haven't seen an A-10 since the first came out at a service/familly day at McClellan AFB way back in the 70s

Thanks,

John

Excellent photos and thank you for posting and sharing these with us.  Love that A-10 in the Vietnam S.E.A. scheme.  The B-17 was also cool especially with the notes written on the framework.  Here in Oshkosh,WI, we see the E.A.A.'s B-17 Aluminum Overcast flying overhead a lot and I still go running outside when I hear those 4 engines overhead!

Yes, excellent photos!  I am sure those shots were not from a cell phone.  What kind of camera?

First of all, thanks for the pats on the back everyone. My ego greatly enjoyed the stroking.

Don, to answer your question, I have an old Sony A100 DSLR and used an old(er) Minolta 75-300 lens. One of these days I'd like to upgrade, I just don't have the cash to spend.

Thanks for looking everyone, and again, thanks for the kudos. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.

Cheers!

Well 'O', first I would like to thank you for the post.  Second, if you are not a professional, you bloody well should be! Awesome pics mate and thanks again.
