At Sanderson Field on Thursday, September 28, 2017

On Thursday, September 28, 2017, I was at Sanderson Field to photograph the maiden flight of Paul Fleming's scale P-39. The morning was perfect for flying—sunny and no breeze. While there, I was also able to image other pilots and their planes.

The gallery images are 1400px wide and are, therefore, best viewed on a monitor, although they can also be viewed on smaller, mobile devices.

I hope you enjoy the gallery images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

About the Images

The images were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i. I used Canon 100mm macro lense for the images of the planes in the air and on the flight line. I set the camera to shoot at a shutter speed of 1/800. All images received simple processing in Photoshop and were saved as low-resolution JPEG images that were optimized for the Web.
