the 2nd one isnt all the impressive, long focal lengths can make subjects apear closer than they actually and unlike with short focal length there is no barrel distortion so its impossible to tell.

as for the 3rd one, wouldnt you get sucked in?????

nope, same deal as number 2 :)

think about how long an AC130 is, the photographer was proberbly at the front of the plane with a huge tele lens.

heres an example:

That was a C130 - not an AC130.. we don't have them unfortunately.

You can get two aircraft pretty close though - I don't think it's a fake - the biggest problem the Typhoon pilot has is keeping airspeed up behind the Herc. Getting close in itself isn't a real issue.


Plenty here. Mostly taken in the valleys* I think
