Over the last few days, I managed to capture on two occasions, military aircraft on a camera that is very new on the spotting scene: My Canon Rebel T7.
This is a C-5M Super Galaxy out my window, presumably contributing to the global fight against COVID-19. To the airmen up there, a salute to you!
It came as a surprise and a stroke of luck to me, as I never saw this one coming on Plane Finder (I need a better radar. Heheh). Despite the fact that there’s a tree, it almost artistically semi-frames the C-5 and adds to the kinda bland clear sky background, making this one of my best catches so far.
My first snapped fighters happened to be both of our Air Demonstration Squadrons, the Navy’s Blue Angels and the USAF Thunderbirds in one shot, over BWI Airport for the #AmericaStrong flights supporting those on the COVID fight’s frontlines. As mom didn’t choose the main flyover location just to be extra safe, they unfortunately cut off smoke last minute, so the result was not what I expected, but it gave me some relief to finally catch these legends despite a full-on botched Airshow season.
But as it turns out, I went a little high on my shutter, and the Blues in this shot turned out agitatingly dark.
