With all the special paints about this year, a daytime photocall opportunity has been missed sadly.

Held at Coningsby, add the BBMF stuff to the line, get in the Tonkas, Hawks and Chinook, £20 quid a pop, job's a good'un. :dunno:

What the hell is wrong with good old fashioned daylight these days? Why does everything have to be done when the sun is about to disappear?!?! Is there a vampire conspiracy going on??... :ninja: :hide: :wall:

Yeah! Plus 1 for a good old Day-shoot. With the amount of post-processing done these days it's a mere hop-skip to making them night-shots?
I only just finished a long 5 Day Night-shoot at Fairford. Really bummed about the Sunday though, ruddy sun came-out & screwed-up my settings! Managed to rescue a few by turning the brightness/contrast to minus 6 & making the whole image orange. Top Bombing to me! :wink:

Very worrying this is a 'sunset shoot' with 'floodlights' not mentioned. You have to ask 'why'? :confused:

DBH is given 2 FRIAT Mach 3 members the chance to be at the night shoot


CALLING ALL FRIAT MACH 3 MEMBERS*

Later this month, RAF Coningsby is staging an exclusive sunset photoshoot - offering enthusiasts the opportunity to capture dramatic twilight images of military aircraft past and present.

Although all 50 tickets for the event from 6pm to 9pm on Tuesday 29 September have been snapped up - the Air Tattoo has managed to secure two tickets to this exclusive event and is offering two 2015 FRIAT MACH 3 members the opportunity to attend.

If you would like the chance to secure a ticket to the RAF Coningsby Sunset Photo Shoot, please email with your name and contact telephone number, stating that you wish to be entered into the draw. Please put 'Sunset Photo Shoot' in the email subject line.

The deadline for entries is noon on Friday, September 11.

Anyone who purchased RIAT 2015 MACH 3 packages on behalf of others, is requested to forward this email on to them.

A full list of the aircraft on display will be made available on arrival, however, this select group can expect to see Typhoons and Battle of Britain Memorial flight airframes parked in unique configurations.

One of the organisers said: "We've not staged a sunset photoshoot on this scale before. It's going to be good!"


Conditions: The names of two RIAT 2015 FRIAT MACH 3 members will be drawn after the deadline of noon, on Friday, September 11. The winners will each receive a ticket to the Sunset Photo Shoot on Tuesday, September 29, from 6pm-9pm. The winners will be required to make their own way to RAF Coningsby and cover any other expenses. The station will provide a hot roll and beverage during the evening. Photo ID will be required.

I've seen a couple of photos on Twitter, and it looked pretty good. Can't for the life of me find the links now though!

Yes of course there were some things wrong with the night but for a first attempt it was a bloody good job, and they will only get better.
