SAAF Zwartkop AFB Museum Warbirds Airshow 2012-05-12
SAAF Oryx firing flares. Right place right time.
It pays to be prepared and know your camera/lens inside out and major effort and cost go to these shows regularly. This chopper came out of nowhere and fired flares very far from the crowds. I had to react very fast to get a shot sequence. This was image 7/9 and each shot was fired individually, not as part of a high FPS burst hold button down and hope for a good shot BS. Slowish s/s was required to capture (and enhance) running flares and get some blur of the rotors.
