Hello all,

I was pointed to this site from the forums on the Air Combat magazine webpage. So far I like what I see. Here is a quick rundown about myself:

    3 Currently work as an Air Traffic Controller at Walker Field in Grand Junction, CO.
    4 Performed duties as an Air Traffic Controller and Enlisted Weapons Controller on board the USAF E-3

I have been shooting aviation photography with my Nikon D70 since Dec 2004. Since then I have accumulated over 9000 photos of aircraft. I look forward to posting some of them here on this site. My camera equipment is as follows:

    1 Nikon D70
    2 Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED
    3 Sigma APO 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro HSM

Welcome Louis. Good to have you here, and great photos.

BTW, to keep the focus on the subject at hand, images in signatures are now allowed. I've seen some Forums where you have to hunt to find the text, and I don't want this Forum to be like that. Sorry about that.

Again, welcome aboard Louis and we look forward to seeing your photos on the site.

Just curious if you are talking about the copyright on my photos that are posted on my www.flickr.com page. If so, those would not be on any photos that are posted here on this site. I definitely understand that there should not by anything like that on a photo that would be uploaded to a site like this. I have photos on some of the other sites and know that type of stuff is not allowed. My copyright is on the photos that are on my www.flickr.com webpage to try and help protect them from being claimed by other people.

Thanks for your concern.

Louis

Hi Louis,
No, no I'm talking about when people enter some kind of an image in their signature line. Then at the bottom of every single one of their posts is a huge banner that is very distracting. Only text is allowed here. As you can see I have a signature, set from my profile, and it automatically appears whenever I make a post. That's all. Nothing to do with photos.

Afternoon Guys, My name is Matt and I found my way here through a link on militaryaiworks.com

I am a former B-2 Crew Chief and am now a licensed Airframe & Powerplant mechanic at the FBO here in Buffalo...

With so many sites dedicated to the civilian side of aviation, it is nice to see a site like this finally!

Keep up the excellent work!

Matt

Hi Folks

My name is Ross and I was pointed to this site by Warplane.
Living in Edinburgh,RAF Leuchars is my closest military airfield,but my real passion is LOW LEVEL photography,which with the Borders to the south of Edinburgh is readily available (once my ankle has healed after my last TRIP!!)

I use a Canon 20D and 30D with a 100-400 IS and 300MM IS lens.

Hope to upload some pictures soon (working my way through a weeks worth of Phantom and Tornado pics from Lossiemouth at the moment!)

Cheers

Ross

Welcome aboard Dex. We'll be looking forward to your contributions in the forum here. I'm sure people will have all kinds of questions about mid-air refueling. It's a pretty interesting an unique concept. It'd be great if one of you guys did a detailed article on exactly how it works, the logistics of it and all, with tons of pictures. I'm sure everyone would enjoy reading it. Something to think about. Again, welcome and good to have you here.

HELLO EVERYBODY My name is VICTOR from PONCE,PR. I'm not a good photographer even I'm not a good computer operator but I love the MILITARY AVIATION PHOTOGRAPHY. IT's so sad to me at this moment because rigth here and rigth now you can't see any figther aircraft since Roosevelt Roads Naval Base is close operations 4years ago...In that moment I decided to retire to... (of course from the hobbie of aviation photography and my equipment was a CANON EOS 35mm with Sigma 170-500mm Zoom) Now the history is diferent with the digital cameras; for me it's better tech and I love that. For this reason, I'm engage the hobbie again after 4years of retirement, now I'm 36years old and I a bus driver with the Goverment and I have a new digital camera [PANASONIC DMC-FZ30( It's not a best choice for aviation photography but it's help in some ways)] Thanks for bring me the oportunity to welcome onboard to a great site like this one

I'm TOMCAT21

Hello,

I joined Airfighters.Com last night, have been looking for somewhere sensible to post military photos to for a while. Just uploaded a few Starfighters to start with taken back in 1985. Oh yes, I forgot; I am Michael Baldock, age 48, live in Guildford, and I work as railway train crew. Have been interested in aircraft since I was 3 years old! My other interest is abandoned airfields and military sites hence my user name 'Ghostbase' which was the title of my old website, now reopened and relocated to:

Ghostbase

Howdy pardners

My name is Wayne and I cam across this site from a friend that was sending me some photos from it. I own my own business doing team uniforms and silkscreeening. We number and letter the Buffalo Sabres jerseys if you follow hockey at all. I spent 6 years in the USAF working on E model Phantoms from 1980-1986. Married with a 6 year old daughter. I enjoy aviation photography (who doesn't) and you can see some of my photos here. http://www.jetphotos.net/showphotos.php?aircraft=-2&airline=-2&country=-2&photog=-2&category=-2&year=-2&keywordrange=photog&keywordlimiter=1&keywords=wayne+dippold&sort=1&genre=1&size=-2&mainsearch=search&displaymode=1&display=15

I also enjoy building plastic models.
Look forward to spending some time here.

Well, like Tim (airwolfhound) and Steve (jacksonphreak), I too found out about Airfighters.com from UKAR. Only heard more and more people talk about this site, so I figured I'd join and share with the fellow members here, as I do on A.net, UKAR, etc.

Hello everyone,

I am a regular like SnowJ on some UK forums, mainly Fighter Control and UKAR. My main interest is military aircraft photography which I have been doing seriously now for 3 years. I have taken pictures at military shows and bases since the mid 80's but nothing with any decent equipment. My passion takes me all around Europe but I am hoping to do west coast USA next year for the first time.

My equipment includes the following:

Canon EOS 20D x2
Canon EF 100-400L
Canon EF 70-200L f/2.8
Canon EF 300L f/4
Canon EF 24-105L
plus the usual extras.

Just uploaded my first two pictures, will upload some more later.

Cheers

Glad to help! I've always been of the mind--until recently--that, whatever I uploaded to Airliners.net, chances are everyone's already seen 'em. Well, I'm glad to hear that may in fact not be the case.8) I guess I can link to my A.net stuff, seeing as someone has already linked to their JP stuff...thanks for the idea!

Heyyy. Just saw the ad on Anet, and figured I'd join up and share some of my shots. My sources for military shots are mainly airshows and limited approach views to Randolph AFB.

So far, this site looks very well done... congrats to the Admins for getting it started!
