Aviation flicture thread
« on: April 09, 2007, 04:59:35 PM »
Been playing a bit with my new digital camera and photo editing  software and have taken a few snaps out at the airport.Apart from the infamous "Waggs on approach" pic, i've got a few others.Perhaps our patient and benevolent leader can make this thread a sticky if there's enough interest.

What do some of the photo gurus here think of these?








EDIT:hmmmm....might have to resize these, sorry..........

I quite like this one.




It's probably something very simple... Like a broken buckle on a fan belt.

I didn't take this shot, but it's a damn nice machine. The pilot ain't bad either.  :D

Hey, PM, those are great pics. Just one complaint, the props are blurred - can you do better next time? Thanks.

I don't have a green van or a friend that eats copious quantities of MacDonald's.

Nor do I have great collection of "Plane Spotting Photographs" (thank God!)

But I do have a couple which I think most of you have seen before.

This pic was taken at the then RAAF Base Butterworth, Malaysia, in (IIRC) March 1983 by CPL Ned Hobby, a RAAF photographer. Ned had bought himself a motor winder for his own camera and was trying it out on A9-292 taking off. He did not realise until he developed the film that there had been a momentary sheet of flame from No4 engine, much less that he had captured it on film.

The aircraft was reported to have suffered a birdstrike on the starboard wing and momentary thrust loss from No 4 engine.

One of my Son and I on our way back home after an air show, this was taken some four or five? years ago.  We were VFR but had to upgrade to IFR due to the weather, night landing with the cloud down to 600' but he insisted on helping me!

I let him lower the gear and flaps when required and to call out the altitude every 500', he had a ball!



And this one was taken some six months ago when I took my Daughter to Kalgoorlie with me.
