At a recent visit to EPJ field I caught some very, very fast flying aircraft! With a suggestion from Vincent I was able to almost catch those jets as they flew by. I changed my shutter to “high speed mode” and with one push of the button I took 6 photos. One aircraft had the jet engine sound and of course had to have a fire extinguisher close by. One in the photos actually burned jet fuel I was told. When starting on the grass there was what looked like a stove pipe to deflect the exhaust up instead of down toward the grass! The other aircraft were fast but used battery powered motors and in comparison were much quieter.
