A phabulous night at Yeovilton

A phabulous night at Yeovilton

Postby Ian G on Mon 30 Oct 2017, 8:01 pm

Here's my offering from an amazing evening of photography at Yeovilton last week, courtesy of Threshold.aero and Navy Wings. I will admit that I did make a cock-up on the calendar front as I'd convinced myself that the event was on Wednesday so I duly made the three-hour journey from Wolverhampton to Somerset oblivious to this fact. I arrived with plenty of time to spare but didn't expect to see such an empty car park! After some time I checked the ticket and it had Thursday written clearly on it!! So it was home again driving away from an amazing sunset and a repeat of the journey again the next day, so it was a shame it didn't happen on Wednesday! To compound matters further, my wife and I had already planned to take our dogs out to Brean on Saturday as well so I feel like I could drive the M5 with my eyes shut now!!!

Anyway, it was a great night with a great atmosphere, nothing was any trouble and tea & cake was most appreciated! It was a shame there were no engine runs on the evening as it would have been great to see flame and glow in the dark but hopefully there'll be another chance soon. Many thanks to all involved for a great night.

Thanks for looking, there are more on my Flickr and I do have more to add soon!
