Little Gransden 2014 (non-DSLR) - Updated

Postby Hatstand on Mon 25 Aug 2014, 12:26 pm

An excellent day out at Little Gransden yesterday. Cracking good displays, from a wide variety of planes - and some nutty and entertaining commentary. Weather was kind - not too windy, and high cloud base, so no problems for the flying program. A bit grey for photography though, and a bit chilly too.

The place was absolutely heaving, I'm guessing the 2 Lancs and the Vulcan had something to do with that. Loved the dirty pass and wing-over from the Vulcan. The Slingsby was apparently a stand-in for an aircraft that went tech - but the pilot put on an excellent display, with lots of amazing negative-G manoeuvres.

Anyway, here's some of my photos, I think I've included everything that displayed, and in pretty much the order they appeared:

Nice series of photos - gives a good idea of the day. I like the 3rd Vulcan shot.
