The lighting played havoc on my cheap digicam. The sun was behind and above the planes and a lot of my shots came out too dark I guess I need to learn to use manual settings for such conditions. The 3x optical zoom is still not good enough to get good flying shots unless either I get close or the plane gets close. I see Olympus makes a 10x optical zoom 4 and 5 megapixel camera.

Here is a shot of Jeff's Quest coming in for a landing. The wheel pants were removed earlier due to getting caught on some grass.

kelvin, some image editing software would do a good job in retouching your pics... (working with master files produce much better results)

Hi Kevin,

Tks for the pic of the B25. The retracts were indeed a bit of a problem. Each time I tried it on the ground they worked perfectly. Turns out the nose wheel collar would get caught on a loose piece of covering that would lift up in flight. Didn't find it until the end of the wkend. Tks to Ron Farkas for the gentle landings each time.
