Private Jet Action | Centennial Airport @KAPA | 12/31/20

Hello community!

Let’s flashback to December 31st, 2020. It’s New Years Eve and the last day of 2020. I was pretty bored so I decided to go to my local airport for the first time ever. I live 15 minutes from one of the worlds busiest GA airports and have never gone to it
I decided that I was going to try some panning so I did that and here’s how they turned out.

A very sleek Pilatus PC24 rolling down runway 35R

Cessna 700 Citation rolling down runway 35R for takeoff

A gold, black and white Hawker 4000 zooming down the runway.

This is probably one of the better pans i got. I don’t know why but for some reason i did 1/40 handheld which turned out better than I thought. This is a Piper Meridan performing some touch and goes

This is a Cessna 414A Chancellor seconds from touchdown on runway 35R

Here’s a Learjet 45 operating for Centura health seconds from touching down on 35R. I don’t know why but this plane makes me think of a mango.

Here’s a Embraer Phenom 300 on short final for 35R with some nice buildings in the back.

A very sleek Dassault Falcon 2000EX beginning its rotation out of APA

NetJets Global 5000 smoking it down at APA

Cessna C182 performing some pattern work at APA on 35L

All of the pans were shot at 1/50 except for one of the shots.
Camera Body: Canon EOS Rebel SL3
Lenses: Sigma 100-400mm
Editing: Adobe Lightroom Classic and Adobe Photoshop
