Questa estate ho avuto modo di partecipare allo Spotter Day tenutosi a Pratica di Mare.

In pratica sono andato assieme a un gruppo di fotografi a scattare foto a bordo pista durante le prove di volo di aerei militari.

 E cosi, col mio 55-300 mi sono ritrovato in mezzo a bestioni di ben altro calibro.

Ma sono riuscito anche io a portare a casa qualche foto .

Come ad esempio questo take off di un F-16 Falcon del "Solo Display Team" della "Belgian Air Force".

This summer I had the opportunity to participate in the Spotter Day held in Pratica di Mare.

In fact, I went with a group of photographers taking pictures on the airfild during the flight test of military aircrafts.

And so, with my 55-300, I found myself in the midst of a very different kind of "beasts" (very large tele) .

I also managed to bring home some photos.

Such as this take-off of an F-16 Fighting Falcon of the "Solo Display Team" - "Belgian Air Force."


  1. Can be tricky to use the panning technique on a fighter jet!

    1. You're right Stefen!
      But at the same time is very exciting!


  2. Surely this is a site well worth seeing.
