Lockheed P2 Neptune. The jet engines are used on take off and are shut down for normal flight.Just got back from the show. Lots of photos to wade through, will post some up as I can. In the meantime, anyone know what this is? There was no one around it, no info. Based on the bay doors it's for fighting fires. What I found unique is the two prop and two jet engines. The jet engines have doors that cover the intake, I suspect to keep embers and soot out, they must shut the jets down to drop and start them up to speed their turnaround time. They may be common in other parts of the country, but I've never seen one before.

I'm going to end up with one eventually, may as well get it out of the way. I don't think it needs to be justified any more than any other toy!@Brownie great set of images and the Mustang is fantastic against the cloud. I have one more airshow to go to this year, Race Day at Shuttleworth (Early October, so the weather gods may or may not be kind) and I think I'm going to hire a Panasonic 100-400 again (not sure I could justify buying one, BUT MPB UK do have a few in stock: did someone mention GAS? ).
Yeah, I saw that too. They're hosted at Flickr. If you click it will take you to the page and the aperture is visible there, not sure why it isn't getting imported with the rest.Only just noticed that the f number isn't showing up on your shots, yet they do on the other folks shots preceding it: all I see is camera, focal length, speed and ISO.
That Corsair is a beauty.
Nice shots! I think the little stunt plane in the second and third photos is called an EXTRA 330SC. The only reason I know that is I saw one at the show and looked it up!
I got a few but tossed most of them, none are as good as I would've liked. Too small/blurry/etc. Burst is your friend!Yep, Extra 330SC: nearly full wing ailerons which gives it 400 degree/second (!) roll rate. There was one at Shuttleworth a couple of weeks ago, and the way it was being flown was amazing! Too quick for me to follow and take a decent shot.
