Speechless Sundays - The 2011 Canadian National Exhibition Air Show in Toronto

My brother Larry sent me these photos of the 2011 Canadian National Exhibition Air Show in Toronto. It's been an ongoing treat for years and signals the coming end of summer. These were taken with his Nikon D7000 and they're crystal clear. Nice job Bro!

Hi John - I have not been to the airshow for many years.  I think the last time I have seen it was when the Blue Jays played at Exhibition Stadium (since demolished and now replaced by BMO Field for soccer).  I was planning go this year but the weather forecast included thunderstorms and it was cancelled during the 3rd hour of the 4 hour show that day.

Do you know what type of lens your brother used for the airshow?

Your brother, Larry, really caught sharp crisp photos of those planes, John!   I really like the camouflage paint job on the planes in the top photo.  Very unusual.

Hi Marc - Larry was using a Nikon 300F4 lens with a teleconverter. You should go down there with your camera next year!

Hi Myrl - It's a desert storm type camo. I'll let him know you like his photos.

Nick - He said he didn't get too many good shots because of the weather this year.

amazing photos! I am a military brat and nothing beats standing beside one of these nasty little devils but once they are in the air its very difficult to really see their detail. Great job in doing that from a far. ( J )

J - It's a real rush when they roar by and you have to be pretty quick with your camera. We have lots of military brats from Patrick AFB down here.

I love these pictures of the planes.  I have never been to an airshow and I am going to get to one, one of these days.
