Re: International Air Tattoo 93 RAF Fairford

I was listening to the Central Band of the RAF at the time the MiGs collided, but heard a reporter shouting at a sleeping cameraman to wake up - well words to that effect anyway, and I turned around to see the planes falling from the sky and the two parachutes floating down. The other thing that sti...

Bristol, 6 May - First Dreamliner passenger flight

Hi Like many others, I went to Bristol Airport to photograph the inaugural passenger carrying flight from Bristol to Cancun. I got there early (think I was the first in fact), but Winters Lane soon filled up with parked cars with the occupants eager to get their photos. A cold day with a strong wind...

Formation of 2 o/h Ilminster, Somerset

Hi everyone! In the last 5 mintes or so, had two aircraft fly overhead Ilminster, roughly routing from Dunkeswell towards Yeovilton. One was a single wing light aircraft, the second looked like a Pitts Special trailing smoke- possibly doing a photo shoot?? Any info appreciated! Thanks in advance Roger

To be honest, I didn't realise there still Sea Kings at Yeovilton, so I can't really second guess about that happening with the Lynx

As I finish work at mid-day on a Friday, I decided to head to the local, RNAS Yeovilton, in the hope of photographing the Lynx Farewell Formation on its' final return.

Re: Fire Fighting-Fixed wing and helicopters

Just the one from me, despite F&R being a major interest of mine! Photographed at RIAT 2013. I believe this was being trialled as a platform for getting a crew and entrapment cutting gear to the scene of an RTC ahead of the usual land-based pumps and Rescue Tenders. Not 100% within the title of ...
