Re: Northolt Mar17 Nightshoot

These here are taken generally within 100-200 ISO with shutters as slow as 13 secs in some cases as the EXIF shows.
My exploratory images on my Flickr have suffered due to high ISO but even so, I've seen worse.

Sea *Hawk roadrunning

Passed Sea Vixen WV908 on the M54 northbound past Telford at around 1530.
It was pouring down and the wings were following on a second lorry.
Strange direction heading to Shrewsbury?!

RAF Valley 7th Jan

I got up to Valley with work on the 7th so managed an hour on the fence in the afternoon at the 31 end. With the sun behind I headed for the dunes to get the threshold in sunlight and was rewarded with an F-15 taxi on the same side. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1616/24210161102_35136479c3_c.jpg RA...

Tails of the unexpected

I thought I'd take an hour at CBY to experiment with EV settings on grey triangles, I was not expecting the 41 Sqn Tiffie to put in an appearance though! https://farm1.staticflickr.com/687/20496322413_42593c5bc9_b.jpg 41sqn Typhoon-1-2 by chrisgibson_photography , on Flickr https://farm1.staticflick...

Re: Abingdon 2016 - 1st May 2016

Of the 12 acts planned, I hope some of them actually arrive. This years aircraft attendance was dreadful and all down to the weather which of course is unfortunate and nobodys fault. But imagine that 50% went tech on the day out of just 12 planned acts, that would leave me with considerably less pho...

Re: GRE PSR-295 SCANNER- any good?

Buy it.

I recently picked one up for £80 on fleabay and have programmed all of the usual suspects.
It came into its own at RIAT compared to my previous 'budget' scanner which was limited in comparison.
The text entry helps ID the frequency as well where my last scanner relied on my memory
