Patrouille de France & RCAF Snowbirds flypast

Patrouille de France & RCAF Snowbirds flypast, May 2nd, 2017. I forgotten the flypast was weather delayed from Monday May 1st, 2017. I saw a Facebook message at around 10:45 AM that the flypast was delayed until 11:15. So I grabbed my Pentax K-3II and my SMC Pentax-M★  300mm f:4 prime telephoto lens. I knew I had just enough time for a brisk walk to a vantage point. I decided on the lookout behind the Supreme Court of Canada building as it would give me a good view regardless of whatever direction the flypast would take. The first pass was west to east directly overhead, and the second pass was north to south.

Pseudo HDR with Topaz Detail plugin

I recently added several Topaz Photoshop plugins to my computer. I’ve added Detail, De-Noise, Clarify and Clarity. This small sample are a few where I tweaked the images to a pseudo-HDR effect.

Now I didn’t make it to CYOW today, but I was able to get a RCAF C-17 (CC-17701) that did 3 “tough-and-goes” off rwy 32 at Ottawa Airport. I was close enough with my 300mm lens.

ANTONOV 12BP (Cub) Antonov An-12 (NATO reporting name: Cub) is a four-engined turboprop transport aircraft designed in the Soviet Union. It is the military version of the Antonov An-10 and was made in many variants.

An-12BP An-12B fitted with the two extra underfloor tanks of the An-12P, equipped with a NAS-1B1-28 (Navigatsionnaya Avtonomnaya Sistema – self-contained navigation system) and RSKM-2 (Rahdiolokatsionnaya Sistema Kontrolya Mesta – radio co-ordinate monitoring system).

Later-production An-12BPs were built with a wider cargo door and revised cabin windows placement.

Some An-12BP aircraft were built at the factories as commercial transports with all military or sensitive equipment removed, the designation for these aircraft was unchanged. But the tail gunner’s position is still visible.
