Re: 48hr Photo Comp: Fly Douglas Jets

Great theme Martin, and some lovely archive material posted so far! Mine are all very modern by comparison... Very apt for the theme, taken on the last day at KLM MD-11 operations in November 2014, with special markings applied to the aircraft to commemorate the airline's long history with Douglas &...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Another North Korean shot from me, but only one for 25th September 2015. An amazing flight in this *cough* Air Koryo *cough* Mi-17 Hip.

Re: Aviation- On This Day

24th September 2015 was an epic day for us in North Korea, probably the most action packed day of the trip! Firstly, during the morning we had the chance to photograph the IL-62 & Tu-204 operating from the edge of the runway. Sadly, despite lots of pleading from us and our tour guides, our Korean ho...

Re: The Skunk @ White Waltham Nightshoot

It's actually ZA355 (Tornado GR1) which was moved to White Waltham last year and was previously in standard '...

It was the first day of our aviation tour of North Korea, and flew on this beautiful machine from Pyongyang to Samjiyŏn and after landing were able to photograph in the aircraft in perfect conditions.

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp - Ageing Aircraft Audit

Great theme Mic! I initially had lots of potential contenders in mind, but a bit of googling ruled out some of the planned entries as they were slightly younger than expected! Firstly, a veteran helicopter, the Alouette III. The type first flew in 1959 and this particular machine first flew in 1969,...

Lovely stuff from Farnborough Nige! :star_struck: Friday 6th September 2019 was the first show day at Zeltweg, and was plagued by poor weather and low cloud sadly. Last time this sight will be seen, with the type now due for retirement at the end of this year. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/488...
