Airborne! by casablanca

Airborne!

One of my shots from yesterday after the official portrait of The Young Fella. This is a cropped shot from a zoom one, already far away in the sky.

He flew over Cambridge and headed south, spotting St Paul's Cathedral in London. He said he had a new respect for the pilots of these open air cockpits as the wind just pushes your face out of shape all the time and whips across you when you move your head!

Great fun experience. Different to the RAF trainers he flew as a cadet. He is in the front seat btw.
Gosh, that is so good! You must have been reasonably close!

@maggiemae Used the Sport setting on the camera to pan it and repeatedly shoot from the ground. He was a way away by here but sport is good for sharpness at a distance. Cropping is a wonderful tool!

How long was the flight in duration? This is a fabulous diary shot for him, better than the official one!!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond We opted for the longest one (of course!) at 40 minutes.

That’s amazing clarity for a cropped zoom shot….fantastic photo. It must have been pretty cold up there…what a feeling though! Exhilarating would be the word & on cloud nine when he eventually put his feet back on the ground!

Wonderful shot, he must have enjoyed this enormously!

Fav. Great close-up shot. He is a real adventurer, trying his hands at anything that comes his way. Now is the time, at his age.
