Old Warden 20/10/18

My new favourite cycle route is out to Old Warden and back, with a brief stop to see what's flying. Nothing spectacular but nice light https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1909/31592013538_cef977d9a8_b.jpg G-FORD Old Warden Cycle 20/10/18 by Alex Edwards , on Flickr https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1968/305...

They were taken from higher vantage points. The Phantom for example is next to the 747 which itself is on a raised platform, so as you climb up you can look down on the other aircraft.

Slightly different, saw this at Oshkosh last year, it's used by the forestry service to drop 'Smoke Jumpers' close to fires.

Re: Fire Fighting-Fixed wing and helicopters

I won't claim these to be particularly great photos, they were all taken on a film camera with no zoom, oh to have had a DSLR with 500mm lens at the time. But it isn't everyday you find yourself on the frontline of the fight against a forest fire. First photo is for reference as to how close to our ...

I have to wonder what practical purpose its going to serve though?


It was quite a sight, very slow and really hard to grasp the size of it. The only reference to size are the hangars which are equally incomprehensible.

Airlander Outside (UPDATED - First Flight)

Gave in to the rumours that Airlander would fly on Wednesday evening and cycled down for a look. Glad I did as it eventually went up for it's first flight. Light wasn't great by the time it went up, but was in the right place to ge the Cardington Hangars in the background. https://c5.staticflickr.co...

Was very impressed with the Snowbirds display, very tight formations, good solo/pairs moves and some very original formations and maneuvers. Maybe more impressive than all that though was their response to a technical issue during Friday's display. After a pause to allow the malfunctioning aircraft ...
