The Waterloo Airshow - Part 2

This is my 3rd year at the show and knock on wood it has never rained out in all 3 years I have been there.

As much as I like the Olympus E-M5, the AF is not really designed for tracking jets flying just under the speed of sound. For the flying shots I got out the old trusty D2x.

A great CanCon show, the CRTC would be proud. Missing in the above images were the Canadian Snowbirds and Wayne Hadath's F-1 Rocket.
