USAF F-16 Thunderbirds and RMAF Sukhoi SU-30MKM Flanker C airshow photos

Here are some photos of USAF F-16 Thunderbirds and RMAF Sukhoi SU-30MKM Flanker C doing some acrobatic manoeuvres at the Subang Airport, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Getting there was quite tough too having to clamber about the fence because none of want to get our shoes wet!

Too bad I couldn’t get any clearer pictures of USAF -F16 Thunderbirds or the RMAF Sukhoi SU-30MKM. Should have figured out the settings much earlier on taking clearer pictures of fast moving object from a distance.

In addition, the light drizzle caused a lot of speck on my lens. The commando like climbing plus taking pictures through the fence also scratched my Polarising Filter. I also shouldn’t be too ambitious trying to capture still photos and videos at the same time. In the end, both also not very satisfying.

A basic photography lesson learned from the air show outing. Hopefully can get better pictures next time though I won’t know when any other air force would drop by for an aerial display. Anyway, live and learn.
