Re: A grey and dull last Lakenheath trip of the year

Very grim day at the fence, the weather promised clear skies and sun, alas it never materialised. BBC forecast fooled you too huh? So annoying, but you did well in the conditions. I gave up on BBC weather a year ago - met office seems much better and for the next few hours AccuWeather seems good.

Re: Russian airliner forced to land in corn field

Isn't there a big red light that indicates the wheels are down?

Or even a green one?

Luxembourg marked A400M CT-01 just gone over Northampton out of Beja.
Saw it over Doncaster - looks like it's going to Newcastle.

Some great images here but most of them are far too over-processed for my tastes.

Re: Park & View Monday Departures - East or West?

I have only been to West for departures and have always really enjoyed it

It's not too busy, not too many ladders at the front but yes some aircraft are too high by that point.

Most are not too high though and a few stay low on purpose

Love these shots :sunglasses:

Hopefully I'll get down there sometime and photograph them for myself!
I went and there was only one Puffin.

I had much better luck on the Farne Islands.

Re: How do you photograph Static Aircraft at an Airshow?

If you can't get a clean shot of the whole aircraft try some shots of parts or get a bit arty with what is in the background.

Re: Airshow Copyright Questions

So, theoretically, if you climbed over the fence and got in without a ticket you have no contract and therefore no problem with the organisers chasing you regarding copyright?

Disappointing at Seaford Head - they came into view past Beachy Head and headed straight out to sea.
