Fly Iowa 2013

This weekend June 28th and 29th, 2014, as the Fly Iowa 2014 is in Iowa City I think back on last year's Fly Iowa was in Perry, IA.  Luckily it was close to me as I fortunate to go. I didn't know what to expect for the air show but I was very impressed. It was really cool to see a lot of vintage planes still up and flying, the sky was cloudy and overcast so the background wasn't the best but I still managed to get some good shots. The following are some of my favorites.

I really liked this photograph as it looks like I was up in the air with the plan even though I was on the ground.

On this one I was able to pan with the plan to create the blur in the background to show motion.

These three plans were fun to photograph as they were flying really close to one another. 

 

The next photographs were from the end of the show were we got to witness a wing walker.  This guy has been doing this for a long time and does not use any harnesses.  It was pretty incredible watching considering some of the stunts they were doing.

This was the position he was in for take off and landings.

It was a fun afternoon for the entire family and I don't know who enjoyed the plans more, my son or me.  I hope to shoot another air show again in the future.
