I totally love this great jet, have a lot of shots to sort out.  All I have done is crop.

Nice pictures David and pin sharp too.
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Agreed - definitely subsonic, but not sub-standard!

Its only a bit of vapour in the atmosphere, Does make for good photos though. Mark Long wouldn't dare risking going supersonic at an airshow the costs of all the damage caused at low level would be immense not to mention he would lose his PDA and severe talking to back at CGY maybe even suspended from flying for a period. He is far too professional to do such a thing.

The only time you will here of any Typhoon breaking the sound barrier will be on a live QRA and he would need permission from the base commander who also needs permission from the cabinet. It has happened on 2 occasions this year though and the noise from 15,000 ft was awesome

Thank you folks, never mind on the sonic boom I totally love the shots.  Just sorted out the keepers, so on the 70D I got 5,500 keepers.  Just got to sort out the 1100D.

I would like to see more David if you dont mind. I will also post up a few Typhoons when I get round to resizing them, Like yourself i have thousands as I visit CGY regularly and ive a few from the Loop as well, Although I must admit I do prefer the more aggressive looks of the Tornado

  Of course I will put some more up later, it does make for a good photo and I will love them forever.

very nice, David what camera are you using, if it's a DSLR look into back button focusing and if canon set focus system to AI servo (nikon have there own version) also use only the centre focusing point as that is your most sensitive unless you have one of the top end sports bodies and they can be very complicating to set up correctly

  Thank you Mark, I have tried the Back button to focus but had to stop, as it was giving me pain in my hand,  as I had a big operation on my wrist yrs ago.

Damn thats a bugger, what camera do you use David, On canons you can assign the focussing to any of the buttons not just the normal designated one Also do you use AI servo or its equivalent that will track the aircraft while ever you hold shutter halfway down it shouldn't go out of focus then

  I use the 70D most times, but yesterday I used the 70D and 1100D Canons.  I do have the 70D set to AI Focus.
