Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Eastern Bloc

Some great entries here from across the years, glad it provided a wide range of types making it hard to pick out a winner. Especially enjoyed the older shots, notably the Russian hardware from the 90's and some famous moments. But I've whittled it down to a top 3: 3. Pete's North Korean Tu-134, look...

48 Hour Photo Comp: Eastern Bloc

Getting harder to pick a theme with this being the 49th competition. But looking at the list, I'm not seeing Eastern Bloc as having featured yet so that's what you've got for the next 48 hours: Civil/military, any era, any nationality, fighters/transports/bombers/trainers, so long as its an Eastern ...

Re: Big jet TV YouTube channel

I'd like to offer a different perspective on this, not in terms of being a stereotypical enthusiast as seems to be described in this thread but more from stepping back and looking at the bigger picture. So to begin, I'm all for somebody engaging people to become interested in the hobby. His target a...

48 Hour Photo Comp: Two Ships

I think this time I'll go with a two ship theme: Civil/military, any era, in the air or on the ground, but a two ship of the same type. I'll allow a couple of images per person: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50051606222_9a2a7c0efb_h.jpg Ukrainian Air Force | Sukhoi Su-27UBM1 Flanker | 71 Blue ...

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Adverse Weather

Some very interesting entries, thanks all.

I think the winner for me is Andy’s Kiwi Huey, with those lighting conditions it must have been incredibly hard shooting.

Shout out to Tommy with the LL Tonka, Pete’s Griffins and Wbirdnut. All of those were close contenders.

Over to you Andy.

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Phantoms

Think I'll go with this one. It was a great moment during Anatolian Eagle last year after a good days flying, 111 Filo took us up to their dispersal keen to show off their participating contingent. I think they also let slip they were bringing the pair across for RIAT too: https://live.staticflickr....
