    Joint Service Open House 2010

    Anyone interested in the JSOH 2010 at Andrews AFB for a Jones Beach warmup session? I haven't been to JSOH before and was hoping to hear some inputs from other photogs who had been to previous JSOH..

    thanks

    Tough shooting early in the show and gets better as it gets later.

    Awesome, I was hoping to see more unconventional traffic apart from other AFB shows. Andrews is definitely one of them. Other being Nellis AFB in Vegas :D

    Chris,

    We are booked for Andrews and for Nellis as well. Having been to Nellis for the past couple of years, I really enjoy the variety of aircraft you come across and the great light in the desert. Last year there was a Green Flag exercise going on at the same time which provided a lot of extra spotting opportunities.

    If you show up on Cheyenne Ave on the practice Friday, you will find a ton of spotters hanging out there.

    Here's examples of the light at Andrews AFB, taken from the 2006 show, should it be a fantastic day:

    T-6A Texan II Demonstration from the morning


    F-16 Fighting Falcon Demonstration from the afternoon


    As Joe said, the light is tough in the morning because you face east but it definitely gets better after around noon.

    I would have been at Oceana this year too since it's one of our favorite shows, but unfortunately it's on the only day of the year that I can't go :(
    And after last years WX problems, it's even more of a bummer...

    Anyway if you have any Vegas or Nellis or Aviation Nation questions, I'll be glad to answer them.

    ACC has had major budget cuts and they had to limit the amount of demo's per show
