Ace Man, it was great seeing you again! It was an incredible experience and a challenge to get anything from shooting in the dark... at slow shutter speed from an unstable platform sitting with your head in the wind, however, I wouldn't have it any other way! What a great evening!
Thanks to all the comments! =D> =D>

Usually when the sun sets, the cameras are packed away, the fires lit and the beers come out. :mrgreen:
This was something else! I started at ISO1600 at f3.5 and ended up at ISO3200 at f2.8. I did not want to bounce the ISO any higher, since dealing with the noise is always a challenge.

I mean, it was dark... I think we took off in Civil dusk, I shot in Nautical and Astronomical Dusk.

There is a couple of things I will do differently. My LCD intensity was somehow set one stop up and that cost me to underexpose one stop too much. I am very lucky to get the pics I did. The experience however was incredible!

Note to self...
Don't leave the camera at home.....ever...

I was just dropping some prints off at the airfield and as usual it ended up being a spectacular day at FABB.
Some ALO II flying in ZU-BMF. Thanks again Rob!
