Yesterday, RAAF Pt Cook hosted an interesting flying display of historic piston and jet aircraft from pre-WWII to the Korean War.

My favourites were the Sabre, Spitfire, Mustangs and P-40F Kittyhawk.

Gallery here.  I'll be adding a full set of pics over the next week.

A good friend's (from high school) father flies the P51 Mustang for the museum (and flew it this weekend).  He's also an ex-Roulette from the Macchi days.

EXCELLENT photos, btw.

Nice stuff man, im spewing i missed the air show last year at Avalon and the previous show at Edinburgh here...

Did you happen to get any shots at a slower shutter speed to get some blur of the props?

I tried that by reducing aperture and ISO, but had mixed results so stopped doing it (i.e. props were properly blurred, but the plane itself was too soft).  Plus the light was very variable throughout the afternoon - at times quite dim and other times full bright sunshine.  I haven't done much panning before, let alone with planes going past at 200kph+, so I just focussed on getting crisp photos.  Next I'll try to get some prop blur.

Sounds fair to me, i haven't shot planes like that at all, so im just guessing here!
