The B-17 named Liberty Belle was visiting the suburban Atlanta PDK airport over the weekend to raise money for the Liberty Belle Foundation and Angel Flight Atlanta. I used the event to go out an practice my photography with this plane and others as test subjects. It was also a good excuse to go out and test my brand new Nikon 200-400mm VR f/4 lens.
The B-17 Liberty Belle was giving donors 30 minute airplane rides over Atlanta on Sunday. This meant about every 45-60 minutes the plane would either takeoff or land. The repeated takeoffs and landings allowed me to try different settings on my camera and try to dial in the best setting for the best pictures. Also giving rides and doing multiple takeoffs and landings, was the P-51 Mustang named Red Nose and a local Bi-plane.
This gallery contains photos taken at various settings, so there may be repeat images that look the same, but there are slight differences depending upon camera settings.
