RFC Rendcomb - a few photos & a cheeky air to air

RFC Rendcomb - a few photos & a cheeky air to air

Postby Jonesy on Fri 13 May 2011, 9:33 am

RAF Brize Norton had an invitation to visit RFC Rendcomb near Cirencester yesterday where the hospitality was exceptional. The airfield was originally a training base for the Royal Flying Corps and is now co-owned by Vic Norman who operates the Team Breitling wing walking team from there.

Everybody had a great days' flying and I had to squeeze in a little air to air shoot whilst flying in a Tiger Moth.

My thanks to Jonathan Elwes for agreeing to fly me in his Tiger Moth so that I could photograph the Puss Moth.

Cheers,
Neil.

I just wanted to echo the comments above mine - your shots are great, the scenery, composition and light are all brill. The aircraft are fantastic. Would have liked to have been around when they were new - although you could keep that nasty altercation with the europeans....
