Incoming Japanese Zero

Here is my favorite Zero shot from Wings Over Houston airshow on Friday.  Taken from along Hwy 3 near the end of the runway.  I like the straight-on perspective, the tilted wings and that you can see the pilot.  It was a cloudy day but it works for this shot.  This is the only authentic Zero at the show.  The rest are mock-up’s from the movie Tora Tora Tora.   The 500mm lens makes a great airshow lens when you aren’t too close to the action.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II, hand-held

Shutter priority, 1/320 @ F16, ISO 400, +1 exposure compensation

1/1000 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400,
