Old Warden (Shuttleworth) - 13/04/10 (pm)

Postby viper28 on Wed 14 Apr 2010, 5:35 pm

Heard quite a lot of movements on the scanner going on over at Old Warden yesterday afternoon, which is unusal for mid-week. So when I had some spare time I popped over, thinking It might be good practice. Turns out it was one of the pilot training days ( I should read the forum more often!). I was only there for about 2-hrs (15:00 to 17:00) but it was a good couple of hours! Oh, and I'm not too up on older types so if I have the names wrong - sorry!

All pictures Canon 40D + 300/2.8 + 1.4x tc

#1 North American AT-6D Harvard T.2 - sounded great!

#2 Gloster Gladiator

#10 Yak-18

#11 Percival Provost
Image
#12 Percival Provost

I really wanted to convince myself that the 300/2.8 + 1.4x TC was going to be as sharp as my favoured airshow lens the 400/5.6 - it is, and then some!

Thanks for looking and all C&C welcome as normal
Cheers Simon

Glorious set of shots. Airborne Miles Falcon and dusty Hurri take off completely steal it, for me, but they're all great!

Superb taster for the season ahead. :cool: :cool:
