  • Harrier Photo Tribute - Dan O'Hagan writes the introduction to a very special UKAR feature. We've trawled through our archives, and enlisted help from a few of the many talented photographers on UKAR to produce a photographic tribute to a great British icon of aviation on the eve of its withdrawl from UK military service.

    To top it off, PlanesTV have made us a short video of the Harrier's 2010 role demo, including an interview with the last pilot to fly an RAF Harrier at a UK Airshow, Flt Lt Steve Kenworthy.

    Serial, squadron, location and date information is included in the image captions where possible.

  • As ever, the Week In Pictures features again with the first entry for December.

    Congratulations to all those chosen who are all in with a chance of taking a PlanesTV DVD of their choice when Iain publishes his next blog on the website.


  • Finally, Matt Hampton had written a new entry for the Vampire Preservation Group Blog, revealing the annual photo competiton winners.

Feedback is, as ever, most welcome.

Thank you guys. I'm very grateful for the feedback and I'm sure all those who helped contribute will be too.

It's been a lot of effort that piece, with people scanning slides etc for us over the last 5 or 6 weeks and PlanesTV battling against the weather to get us a video, but I was very happy with the end product. It's nice to know the effort was appreciated! :smile:

The Harrier thing is OK, I suppose - but the pictures are a bit small..........

There's a problem with Lightbox in Google Chrome which I'm looking into, but it's fine if you use a real browser. :lol:

Problem should be fixed now for Google Chrome users - you may need a hard refresh (Control + F5) to clear your cache though.
