RAAF F/18 SuperHornet

"Fast" Flyby on Saturday.

Why the inverted commas ? Because although this was the quickest of the three flybys, they were only doing around 200knots which is a far cry from going flat out. Still a little challenging to track with a 5DII + 400/5.6L combo.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/simple_monkey] 'twas a mad scramble to track it as it went overhead. ;-)
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/45912900@N06] Yep, 400mm is very handy. Not too long but long enough for a wide range of things.
