Like those a lot
Interesting in that the QantasLink A320 is in the latest QF colour scheme.
Also interesting in that it has the rego VH-VOU, whish was last used by Virgin Blue

VH-VQS and VH-VQU were transferred from Jetstar to Network (Qantaslink) as it happened last year they were painted into the new livery.
On another note VH-NXD appears to be the 1st B717 to be painted into the new livery.

This time testing a new lens..
No I wont be buying it some photos werent sharp enough because i was using a low shutter speed to test the stabilisation, then forgot to change it lol
great lens ..very expensive but a real handful (Canon 200 400mm USM F4 1.4 x converter built in) weighs a bloody ton, would get serious arm cramps in an airshow environment.

funny you should mention that..doing a bit of research on that, the consensus is that they are a PITA for aerialshots, I cansee how that would be the case without even trying it. Next thing I have to look up is some harness set up where a small monopod is held in a socket much like used with game fishing poles.. never heard of such a thing before, cant see how that would work either with the length of the camera/ lens combo

I should have taken a photo of the guys at Duxford with their big lenses. There was a split between a monopod and also tripods.
