While the uploading to flickr has been a slow going, I finally got day 1 of the air races finished the other day. Here's some of the best from Friday's practice sessions from Ascot.

Two days to go, plus a day and change at Heathrow still on the way!

Thanks for looking!

Mark, sweet shots and awesome job with the prop blur also. The shot with the BA A380 in the background is pretty cool too !!:cool:
On a side note, very sad to hear that Red Bull Air Race pilot, Hannes Arch, was killed last week in a helicopter crash in the Alps.:frown:

Thanks Chris, I am quite happy with the shots I got from the race in a departure from most airshows I've had the past few years.

I was aware of Hannes' passing, and it's hard with all the other accidents this year to lose yet another person, particularly one I had seen only a few weeks prior. I'm glad I got a chance to see him fly one last time, as I have admired his race lines and blend of smoothness and aggression on the track for many years.
