Re: Cosby 2011, Warbirds and Tanks, what isnt there not to like

Some nice stuff there Andy. I like the Hurricane. Marinell is one I think I never saw. I agree the aviation of the day thread has got me looking at stuff I had forgotten about, it's a great thread.

Re: Yorkshire Air Museum

A nice set there Gary. The second is my favourite for some reason.... It looks like we was in when you visited with the crew door open. I liked the indoors stuff, working there, I don't get into the exhibits as much as I should. Thanks for sharing.

Nick and D90 awesome pics. Something I would have loved to have seen. D90 your last pic is real close to a friend of mine, who posted it on FB. Do you know Ian Mathews ?

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Thankfully Grosjean was speaking from his hospital bed last night. Incredibly he has suffered minor burns to his hands and bruising from the 53 G impact :open_mouth: I would not put it past him wanting to drive next week. Seeing him emerge from the inferno, was a miracle. They say he was trapped for...

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Bahrain GP is currently red flagged. Any one who thought the halo was not needed was proven thankfully wrong today. Quite easily the worse crash I have seen in probably 20 years. Grosjean's car was cut in two and exploded. Massive fire. BUT he is alive and ok which is all that matters. The cockpit w...

Thanks to both of you. I am going to put a more detailed thread in oldies later. The runway shot is one of my favourite shots. I was tasked to cover the event in more detail than normal. The shots in the QRA pan with her moving was done with safety in mind no one is allowed in the area when taxing. ...

We got there with about 40 mins of light and we decided to check out if anything was flying. This was leaving Brize village d...

I was also at Brunty in 2015, I had helped set the shoot up to help the tea bag team. I could not stay as I was working on Lindy the day after Also not being a fan of re enactors in night shoots I got a few different angles before I left. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/i23/ianfinch_photos/04...

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Agreed Derek. Today was done on skill not car performance, It is easy to say its the car not the driver as the reason for his wins. But the truth is as Derek says the car helps but still has to be driven. And he has done it without the dodgy tactics Schumacher and others have done.
