Shuttleworth Race Day 1st October 2017

Postby aknott68 on Tue 03 Oct 2017, 10:09 am

Weather conditions were pretty challenging with low cloud and flat/dull lighting all day - despite the flying being scheduled to run until about 6pm the airshow was curtailed about 4:30, wasn't clear why but I guess it was because of the strong winds.

Not the best photos in the world given these conditions but there may be some of interest to people

Great set of photos :clap: I attended too and it was a challenging day for photography to say the least. The high winds curtailed the flying for the older more fragile types sadly but a great effort from the Suttleworth team to get anything flying in those conditions :clap:
