The Hood Aerodrome in Masterton is home to a fairly decent collection of replica World War one aircraft and yesterday they hosted an airshow to commemorate the end of WW1 on 11 November.
It was only the second time that I had attempted to shoot an airshow, and this time I had two advantages over the last one. The first was these planes fly a lot slower than their WW2 counterparts, and secondly I had borrowed a 600mm F4 lens. This lens was massive and best worked from a tripod.
Being a fixed length introduced a challenge when you were trying to get all of the plane in the shot. I have selected a sample of images below. I am not a plane enthusiast so couldn’t tell you exactly what plane was what, but at least you can work out which side their were on.
