Last trip for 2012 ~ Brize Norton

Postby lozza on Wed 19 Dec 2012, 1:54 pm

Well got to be honest base bashing isn't normally my thing, but yesterday was a really good day out, had decided on a day out as billy no mates but it turned out to be a right old jolly day out with Andy F, Dave E and Pete F, think I used every lens in the arsenal, plus movements were great, what I really wanted was some VC-10's as the old girl won't be around much longer, so was very pleased when they came out to play, even with a fuel leak :unknown:

I'd imagine my final post before the world comes to an end on Friday so instead of Merry Xmas, see you all at the Gates queueing to get in :rock: :rock:

Nice crisp lighting/shots in the low sunshine. Love the 'bluey' VC10 - number 8, and the 'golden' VC10 - 20 & 23.
The last couple are very fitting - sunset for the VC10... :sad:

Excellent. Hard to pick out a favourite from them, although shot 20 is very nice as are the sunset shots of the VC-10.

Some of the best shots I have seen from Brize in a while, looks like it was an action packed day.
Really need to make a trip and see the old Vicky before she bows out.

Fantastic set of images - real variety in subjects, lighting and image styles. The C-17 crossing the road is fantastic. I'll be passing Brize over the festive hols and based on these, will certainly be taking the camera and a packed lunch!

Terrific work :clap:

Everyone a stunner, as always, but shot #5 is amazing with #22 coming in just behind.

At least you will have up to around September now to photograph the remaining VC10s... :)

Is there much activity at Brize over the Xmas period? I need to get down there before the 10's go.
