2014: Review

Postby Macc on Mon 22 Dec 2014, 7:35 pm

Not the most thorough year, with AIR14 definitely being the highlight. It started off at Cosford after a morning flight with next to no sleep, not the nicest weather worked in my favour and led to this photograph which I'm pretty sure is a double exposure - the second pointing towards the sky.

Next up was Joint Warrior 14-1; with the first two days heralding plenty of movements I managed to capture most of what I was after in the two days I was around for. Sadly the light disappeared before the P-8 departed for its evening mission.

A quick trip to RAF Lossiemouth before my train having worked on a job at home in Elgin the previous evening, this was to capture 6(F)sqn arrival.

Then it was the RIAT from the Friday afternoon. Also a big thanks to the forum member I bought tickets from before the event on the Sunday when it had sold out. The Corsairs, Fitters and Italian test demos made it a very enjoyable Air Tattoo despite the F-35 cancellation.

A lovely evening at RAF Lossiemouth with some relocated Typhoons arriving back in some sunshine.

Having moved to Copenhagen in August, I managed to find cheap flights to Geneva. This allowed me to join a trip to AIR14 and it was my aviation highlight of the year.

Not sure what next year will bring but this one was better than expected.

Looks like you had yourself a good year... The Hornet shot is rather nice. I'm looking forward to stopping by Lossiemouth in the summer, it was busy before with just the Tornados but now with added Typhoons. Should be a good day out. :up:
