It was HOT HOT HOT, damn texas heat. Got some great shots of the Spads super close. Caught the first 4 about 11 from the tower. Moved down to the end of Heritage Pkwy and Westport, park in the little strip mall and walk across to the open field. When they take off your literally right there on them, i guess most were about 100-150 ft away. Or theres an open spot on the other side of westport right at the end of the runway where you can pull your car down onto and catch some great pics. For landing head over to FM156 and go down about a mile, you can guage where the end of the runway is. They have a big white block that has the approach lights on it, theres several oil field driveways right in through there to sit at. The Spads are coming in on the far west runway, when they come over, they are CLOSE, i was shooting my 100-400mm on the 100mm side and still having a hard time keeping them in frame. I had to switch over to my 28-135mm lens. Theyre flying 2 sorties a day. Caught a Rio Lobos jet doing touch and goes and an F5 that came in with the Spads on theyre afternoon run. He made a low pass hauling some ass in afterburner, was pretty cool!! Just a little FYI, security is tight around there, dont be surprised if your approached. STAY AWAY from the southwest warehouse and tradewind drive. I wouldnt bother with a ladder either, security sees you up on a ladder, your asking to get stopped, you dont really need one anyways. They have several JRB trucks running around during the day running security. Heres my catches for the day.
