Last shot is superb despite the slow shutter and shadowed plane. The camera plane will be moving around a bit as well so to get a clear little camera shake shot at slow speed is difficult - good camera though helps I guess. Crystal clear in the previous shot, lovely Gavin!

The last two were shot at 1/60th which is not easy from a Nanchang going flat out but can be done and is a lot easier when facing backwards, wish we had a B25 here sometimes. Don't normally bother with the very slow shutter speeds as time with the big bangers is always short but we had a couple of minutes to burn whilst waiting for the Fw 190 to arrive.
I think it comes down to practice really, have found that image stabilisers in the lenses dont work in that environment so its just getting used to the environment and hanging on!!!
I think Teresa's new Canon has the image stabilisers, showing a small red box when locked on. Think it was in sport mode. I had trouble with it as it locked on very well but if I moved the camera to get more of whatever I was taking in, the image shot forward until it locked on again. Then it was too far. Head on shots were ok. Practice will make perfect i presume. Never get tired of seeing these Spitfires on here!
The Auster should be recognised for what it is: a gentleman's aerial touring carriage and a nice aeroplane.
