Doing a bit of research a while back when I got interested in aerial photography I came across this Zeiss article:

I got in touch with Albrecht Brugger just to try to learn what I could from him through email. He has to rank with the best aerial photographers: It is worth looking at the Zeiss article written about him.

Okay, here's what happens when idiot photographer uses a TLR with a really long lens and tries to keep a bomber in the viewfinder as it passes overhead:

Took this on Sunday at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton with PanF+ in TLR with 180mm lens as the Avro Lancaster passed over the crowd.

... Anybody else notice that 36 exposure colour negative film is getting to be a rare bird in the drugstores?

I'd liken it more to an exotic bird because of its #$%& high prices :mad::mad: Centuria is $2 a roll at my favorite downtown haunt but $5 a pop everywhere else :mad:

I would shoot more slide film, but not that many interesting planes come in and out of my local airport. I wish some 707s, 727s or old props would come through :D

I shoot aerials on occasion. Mostly mountains and mostly with a handheld 8x10. Gowland. It is darned expensive, though.
