Skywatch-Planes

I was too late with my camera when I saw the apache flying above me. By the time I grabbed the camera, the plane fly too far away. Anyway I have another photo of the apaches in my previous post.

Another plane flying past after the apache. I guess it is always at this time of the year where the airforce are rehearsing for the National Day parade next month. So next month, I must tried to capture these planes as they fly past me. :)



Thanks to Tom for hosting Sky Watch. For other sky watchers, you can go to Tom's skywatch blog.

Yup, time of the year again to keep hearing those planes flying above us :P

Very true about the noises. But I am not complaining cause I love these planes. No, it is not easy to get those tickets. I will be spending time during lunch time with siblings and family and then rush home to watch the live parade during dinner time....lol.

They look so cute photographed like this.

It is hard photographing planes isn't it - I often run out just in time to see them disappearing over the horizon. Good catch!

Hi Alice, you caught those two really good! I like to catch things in the sky too, most don't belong there according to Mother Nature.
Thank you for peeking in on the BK sign in the Kansas sky I caught.

Happy Skywatch Friday, Alice!!!

I shall keep a lookout for the sky too. Like Singapore, Malaysia celebrates its National Day in Aug. There will be some Air Force planes flying above our houses training for the National Day parade.

Wish you a lovely weekend with family.

Thanks for the nice comments. Yes they looked cute and looked like birds from a distance.

Nice shots - you have to be quick to catch those big 'birds'.

I had helicopters coming toward me last Sunday morning but I could not quite tell where they would appear from. Then I could not catch them in focus and close enough. Very frustrating job! You have done wonderfully well in comparison.

Gordon said...

So true; it is difficult to catch fast moving planes. I have tried so often with limited success.

Hi Alice!
Sorry for the absence these last weeks, but unfortunately it wasn’t due to some summer holidays… ;))
