Photographer's Note

I was fortunate to be selected as part of the photographers who had VIP access to the planes and the 'photo pit' - the best viewing angle for photographers during the airshow.

That selection process was taken a couple months prior to the airshow through a photo competition where they selected about 35 people out of 2000+ entries.

Part of the VIP package was arriving 2 hours before the airshow started, and having close access to these beautiful planes on the runway.

And with the best morning light available it was my favorite part of the airshow! Just imagine my excitement, being able to get this close to dozens of world war II planes, Mustang P-51's and jet fighters.

While most of the other photographers used mid ranges lenses, I of course wanted a more unique perspective.

Using my 8-16mm Sigma gave me a chance to get REAL close up and personal with these beauties.

Here is one of the shots I got, I'll post more funky angles as the days go by. Hope you like it
