The Wild Blue Yonder – 2014 NAS Jacksonville Air Show

2014 10 Aviation - NAS Jacksonville Airshow 12 - P-51 Crazy Horse F-22 Heritage Flight

After an amazing evening photographing a very literally out of this world sunset earlier in the week, we had the pleasure of photographing some objects in lower earth ‘orbit’ at the 2014 NAS Jacksonville Air Show.  With near-perfect weather and a year-long delay, the air show welcomed a record number of aviation enthusiasts, with over 300,000 people estimated to have been in attendance over the weekend.  The air show featured a generous selection of aircraft on static display, from a navy helicopter drone to the massive C-17 Globemaster.  In the air a variety of nationally-recognized stunt pilots amazed spectators with their gravity-defying displays.  There were also a few attractions that never quite left the ground, including a jet powered school bus that belched 200 foot flames, a jet port-a-potty and a speeding snoopy atop his rather fast moving dog house.  But for me, the two neatest highlights were the demonstrations by an F-22 Raptor and the always amazing flying feats of the Blue Angels.

Here’s our third and final installment from the air show – our Panoramas.

One of the unique things we provide at the majority of our shoots are ultra-high resolution panoramas.  This is a fun and unique way to capture all the activity in a wide area while maintaining lots of crisp quality, even at very large sizes.  Enjoy!

Flying High with Audi at the NAS JAX Air Show – Part 2 [The Planes]

Here’s Part 2 from this weekend’s Air Show. For those of you who missed the first post, we had the opportunity to shoot this year’s show on behalf of the title sponsor, Jack Hanania Automotive Group.

Aviation goes way back in my family.  My grandfather flew a P-51 during WWII and so the P-51 holds a special place in my heart (right next to my TR-6 if you were wondering).  The two P-51s above are flown by The Horsemen – the world’s only P-51 flight team.  It’s always a thrill to hear those mighty 16 cylinder engines come to life.  It’s a sound not easily forgotten!

For those of you who follow the blog, you already know I am a bit of a car nut, but you may not know that it was actually my love of aviation that brought me down to Florida.  I originally came down to Jacksonville University as a flight student.  Though I changed majors, my love for flying has never diminished.  So, having the opportunity to walk among such beautiful and storied aircraft, not to mention watch them fly, is quite a treat.

Above is a wonderfully restored example of the trainer variant of the Stearman model 75.   The first aircraft most WWII veterans flew, this plane taught countless thousands all the basics of military flying.  This particular Stearman is flown by John Mohr [of Mohr Barnstorming] – who put on a thrilling barnstormer-style display – flying just feet off the ground in a variety of unconventional attitudes.  It was all the more impressive this weekend because of the crazy crosswinds.  He’s truly a talented pilot!

Flying High with Audi at the NAS JAX Air Show – Part 1 [The Sponsor]

This weekend, we had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the NAS Jax Air Show on behalf of the title sponsor, Jack Hanania Automotive Group.  To shamelessly parody a cherished Christmas carol, though the weather outside was frightful, the stunts [and occasion warm jet wash] were quite delightful.  As you will see in a few photos below, we employed our ND filter for several unique time exposures of the crowd.  The one below is my favorite:

Jack Hanania Automotive Group has four dealerships in town, specializing in Audi, Acura, Hyundai, Mitsubishi and Volkswagen sales.  We had a great time getting to know some of their staff at the event, as they showed those daring souls who braved the cold, some of the great new cars from Audi, VW and Acura.    We hope you enjoy the photos!
