Tips on getting the most from the event

Make sure you have waterproofs, umbrella, and sun cream. Drinks and food are on sale but would suggest taking picnic, snacks and drinks. Take camping/folding chairs is a must. If you have children it is advisable to take ear defenders as the jets can be noisy.

After the show has finished be prepared for a very long wait to exit the airfield as it has only one road out.

Photographing aircraft

Here are some basic tips to get the most out of taking photos of aircraft:

Exposing for the aircraft.
If you point a camera at the aircraft it will read the exposure as bright due to ponting skyward, you are likely to get aircraft that are too dark. To compensate for this you need to adjust usually by + 1 or 2 f stops.

Shutter speed.
Anything with a propellor needs a fairly slow speed to blur the prop otherwise the aircraft will look as if its "dropping" out of the sky. Depending on the speed of the aircraft and the focal length of the lens but anything above 1/400 and the prop will lack good blur. A good speed to use is 1/250 especially if you have Image Stabilisation on the lens. The slower you go the better the blur, but you risk getting an image that may not be sharp due to your movement, learning to pan smoothly helps.

Helicopters are very hard to blur the rotors and need much slower shutter speeds.
