Have you thought about checking the Shuttleworth website regularly?

No one on here is going to know before they announce them :whistle:

Looks like they will be having a couple of bigger military pageant displays during July and August, admission price for these have been put up to £25 per adult on the gate, i hope for that price they have quite a few decent visiting warbirds. The July show will have a 'naval theme' so fingers crossed for the RNHF and a few TFC 'cats' in fact depending on the line up i may well come down from ooop north for one of them.

With Northolt, Coventry and Newark arranging 'night photo shoots', I am very surprised Shuttleworth haven't caught on to this extra fund raiser? The Hind, Gladiator and Tutor would look superb floodlit!

AMB, we do, however, have evening shows which provide some really great lighting when the weather decides to smile upon us.

At shows early and later in the year it usually goes dark before we've put everything away so it's not beyond the bounds of possibility to arrange for particular aeroplanes to be placed where they can be photographed to best advantage. I'll sound out whether we could set something up during the season and I'll let you know what we come up with.

You'll find that if you hang around after the shows you can grab some good shots of the aeroplanes in the dark as they're standing at the top of the field or whilst they're infront of the hangars waiting to be put away. The opportunities are there, although they're sometimes brief.

The Hind should look particularly good with some light on her, we got her all blinged up a couple of weekends ago http://forum.planetalk.net/viewtopic.php?t=7368

Thanks Rob. I put this to Shuttleworth and Julie replied saying this would be on the agenda of the next events meeting. Taking photos in fading light is not quite the same as having specially placed floodlights with the aircraft being run up in completely dark conditions, so hope they take this suggestion up.
