Re: Indra Dhanush 2007

Thanks Big Eric!
No need to worry about the weekend show or river. Copied that by mistake from my MAKS19 upload - now removed :)
The C-130 shot was taken whilst stood on a step ladder A15 end, opposite the WAVE. Pretty much where you would have been positioned I'm guessing.
Cheers,
Chris

Indra Dhanush 2007

Hello, Below are a series of photographs from the Indra Dhanush Exercise held in 2007, along with a few visitor aircraft. The aircraft were based at RAF Waddington for the duration of the exercise as the runway length was better suited to the Su-30MKI requirements. This was the first aviation outing...

RAF Coltishall

Hello, During difficult times for the world, it's a useful time to reflect on what was back in the day. I've always had an interest in aviation since my uncle took me to my local, RAF Coltishall, many moons ago. However, it wasn't until I was 25 that I became much more interested in photography. Uns...

Mint 7DII with battery grip - shutter Count 9677

Hi All, I bought the 7DII a couple of years ago as a back up camera to my 5DIV. It basically sits in the bag and is barely used, hence low shutter count of 9677 (accessed via Astro Photography Tool). I've looked at WEX second-hand prices and the like to get an idea of asking price. 7DII, low shutter...
