Globe Swift

6/17/2013 Globe Swift

The Globe Swift looks fast just sitting on the ramp.  This Swift was taking off today just as I was leaving the airport.  Luckily I had the Nikon 1 V1 with the 70-200mm f2.8 sitting on the seat next to me.  The 70-200mm f2.8 is heavier than the 70-300mm f4.5-5.6, but I was not on a walkabout.  You don’t see many Swifts around the airport; none are based at my home base.  This bird was from Wisconsin.  Hope he returns someday.
