Gloomy day, but I wanted to catch that KUZU flight Peter mentioned earlier today... You can see the light changing from shot to shot.
So here it goes:

Cessna 560XL Citation Excel performing a windy landing:



Delivery flight for that Beechcraft:



Cessna 551 Citation II/SP:



Another Hawker Beechcraft B200 King Air:



Luxembourg Air Rescue MD Helicopters MD-902 Explorer entering the airfield:



And finally the ULS Cargo Airbus A300B4-203(F):



I secretly hoped for the KUZU green livery, but I settled for this one too:



Pretty for an 1980 aircraft:



One final sight before I had to go:




That's all for today folks. See you around! And thank you a lot, Peter.

strange weather indeed! Some nice visitors though. I decided to do a last minute position change for the Kuzu/ULS Airbus as the light on approach was not really good.

Touch down! Love your shots. I saw you leave in a rush and I had the feeling that you wanted to be next to P7.
Worked out pretty good I'd say.
C ya.

Good shots in these weather conditions. Well done!

Olivier:

My favourite is the Beechcraft with its beautiful unsharp propellers. Which speed did you use ? Less than 1/100 s ? And wich ISO settings (100 ?) ? Under sunny conditions is rather difficult or even impossible to go under 1/100 s. I suppose the bad light did help.

Dany:
Indeed, for the first Beechcraft (N8036Q), I had forgotten to bring my speed down. I always select my speed when I am shooting planes.
For the second one, I used 1/125th of a sec @ 160 ISO to get the nice effect on the propeller.

Thanks for your reply.

The proppellers of beechcraft had probabbly a higher rotation speed than those of the Luxair Q400 where one still can see the blades. Or 1/125 th of a sec is longer on your camera than on my camera.

No it depends how fast they are revving.
The Beechcraft's pilot gave a bit of gas to bring his plane in alignment with the runway fighting the crosswinds.
Hence the nice effect. Got lucky.
