One last photo of the P-63, then one of a P-40K Warhawk, and two of a P-40N Warhawk.

Here's a couple more with "teeth".  :-)
One with out.
In order, a Goodyear FG-1D, Grumman F-8F-2, Chance-Vought F-4U-5NL, and the B-747 Shuttle Transporter.
Looking just off the tail of the FG-1 photo, you can see the transporter as it now sits, no longer needed.

Amazing photos.

I agree.  I couldn't get pictures that clear and detailed if the plane was on the ground and I was using a tripod.

Canon 70D with EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L for those.
I found the 70D works a bit better for those that the 5D Mkll body.
Switched to the 70-200 f/2.8L for later shots.  Needed the aperture.

I have a Konica-Minolta 7D.  I have a 70-200 lens and a separate 50mm, but I don't recall the speed/aperture.  I wonder how similar they are.

The 50 is probably an f/1.4.  I didn't think they had a 70-200 unless it's another brand.
There are different quality ranges for most lenses, so unless yours is up the ladder, it won't compare.
The 7D was the last camera that Minolta put out.  Kind of a shame, they had very good film cameras.

I spent some money yesterday.
Ordered a Tokina 16-28mm ultra-wide angle lens.
Not sure what the hell I'm gonna do with it.  Had to have the thing.


edit.... It's on back order.  :banghead:
