Re: Your favourite non aviation image from 2019

It'll have to be one of my wildlife exploits, going to go for this Marbled White taken after sunset near Guildford in the Surrey Hills. Kneeling down in a grassy meadow is itchy, scratchy and spiky. Would not recommend... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48585887177_c2bf481c52_b.jpg Sunset White ...

Can't imagine I would need to be at P&V West for 5am, surely? Got there gone 7am last year and still got in! :hide:

Re: Old Warden Photography

To put these distances into perspective, see this quote from Facebook:

The slower aircraft were closer to the 75m line.

Not sure if it's been mentioned anywhere yet, but you now have to pay £5 to park too. Doesn't look like this applies to Flying Legends though?

Lovely set. That is one lucky dog :smile:

As an aside, is the Scout supposed to have oil dripping down the sides like that? Don't recall seeing it on the other rotary WW1 types, or is it just because its a lighter colour?

To quote Key:

The display practices today were indeed positioned so that the aircraft remained within the eastern boundary of the airfield and did not overfly the M11 during their routines

According to the Goodwood website (I think it was that anyway), David Arnold owns it. Richard Grace and co. just operate/charter it or however you want to describe it.
