    Re: Endless thread ::: Aviation Photographs..

    Thank you both, Paul and Cecilia.
    It was my first airshow, albeit only a little local one - no great jets screaming past. The pair above were good, but the following Pitts Pair biplanes http://www.thepittspair.com/site/ were just superb. Unfortunately my photos of their display were NOT! though below is my photo of them on the ground.
    I've just got to learn to photograph moving objects - perhaps I'll start with bikes (pedal variety!) or snails. I panned like mad but the sun was on the screen and the viewfinder didn't help either and I was slow pressing the button and....and....!
    But it was all such great fun.

                  Sterkoder,

                  Is it just in my head, but aren't those air-brakes normally only used after touching down on the runway?

                    I didn't get round to posting this autogiro from the Seething Air Show, so here it is now.

                        Sterkoder,

                        Is it just in my head, but aren't those air-brakes normally only used after touching down on the runway?
                        Friends, Jan-Olav and Thijs:
                        If you look closely at the tail end of the engine visible on that Fokker F-100, it has thrust reverser, and that is the one type of brake I belive you are thinking about being used on ground after touch-down.
                        The spread items at the tail of this plane are speed-brakes, not usually used on passenger airplanes, but widely used on military fighters.
                        Two passenger airplane types that I know of right now using an aerodynamic speed-brake are the Fokker F-100 (as started out as the famous F-28 Fellowship) and the British Aerospace BAe-146 (see image below).
                        (And just as a curiosa, did you know that a famous passenger aircraft also used a brake shute, just like fighters do...? Yepp, the Sud Aviation SE-210 Caravelle did).

                          Interesting.... I would never have guessed a chute on a commercial airliner.

                              ...... (sigh).... and I love, I love, I love.... oh, I miss them so, and my former good friends that used to pilot these.

                              If I may, I will dedicate this very image to a very good Thai captain of mine, I know he would have loved seeing this.

                              Sadly, he is no longer with us.

                                That is a dedication I feel very honoured to make.
