Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Very nice Randy  Cool  Always like the military formation teams.  Camera?  How much zoom where you using?  How hard where those to frame?

Thanks!

Thanks! 

Canon 350D (Rebel XT) w/Canon EF-S 17-85 IS zoom. Most of those shots were at full zoom due to where we had to sit and I had to do quite a bit or cropping to get closer. Most were fairly easy to frame via continuous mode and panning. Of course I've got a zillion shots suitable only for the recycle bin. Cheesy Wink

I've got to work on the rest of the bunch but that will take a while.

Good show to get those at full zoom with planes moving that fast!  I might have gotten a rudder and occasional wing tip  Cheesy
