    Brisbane Valley Air show – 27th 28th August 2016

    Just came across this 2 day event starting tomorrow (Sat 27th Aug 2016).

    http://brisbanevalleyairshow.com.au/

    Does anyone have any experience in attending this event in terms of how suitable it would be for aeroplane photography?

    Cheers

    Dennis

    This has been running for years, now its an Airshow instead of a Fly-in. Pics have been OK in the past, but don't know about now.

    Take everything, static planes to aerobatics will require different ranges.

    Unfortunately due to other commitments I can’t attend this event. What gorgeous weather and beautiful blue skies for this weekend!

    Good luck for those who get there, and be sure to post your take on the event.

    Cheers

    Would it be worthwhile lugging the tripod around?

    Did anyone go along the airshow? How was it, I'd be interested in seeing a few of the photos.

    Shot 2000 and saved about 300 good day on the Saturday, but it was slightly different on the Sunday.
    Will post some soon.
