Navy Wings Night Shoot

Fri 27 Oct 2017, 5:53 pm

Evening all,

Here's another selection of images from last night's terrific evening courtesy of Threshold.aero and Navy Wings. My first night shoot, which won't be my last, I thoroughly enjoyed my evening in the company of some fine aeroplanes and plenty of familiar faces to boot.

So nice to see Foxy up on her feet again. I'm really happy living abroad, but when i see events like this, i just miss Heron a tonne!

Really good set here! The #2 Phantom stands-out, but the twilight Sea Fury edges it into second! :clap:

Don't beat yourself-up 'Jakesplanes'. Much better to remember HMS Heron as it was, than pollute those memories with the reality of now! :sad:

Thanks very much chaps :clap:

I wish I had taken more shots during that twilight period as it came out much better than I had anticipated. Something to improve on next time...

Thanks again,

Shaun
