Re: Cobra Warrior from beyond the fence - 12-09-18

Cobra Warrior from beyond the fence - 12-09-18

Decided to spend the day at RAF Coningsby on Wednesday starting early at CG1, then around the perimeter to try and get the best of the movements and light. Plenty of movements and a lunchtime interval of PA474 bashing the circuit instead of venturing to Jersey due to the arrival weather. Great to ca...

A fews days out in the Loop

Well August has the nett sum of one visit to the hills, so you'll have to settle for a few days out in July and that one occassion. First up was 10th July, pre-RIAT, with some international friends calling in for a flying visit: 1) https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1825/42462696415_7c7fbb9348_b.jpg Bes...

Re: C17 Globemaster in Low Level flying on a Saturday

Looking at a sun position app for photographers, the sun would have been roughly directly overhead the lake from a southerly direction at about the time the C-17 came through. A couple of hours later and you would have had better lighting on it as the sun would have been further round. Given the co...

C17 Globemaster in Low Level flying on a Saturday

After seeing a posted heads up of activity in LFA17 and only 1 1/2 drive away I high tailed it up to Smaithwaite with my usual partner in crime. The morning consisted of 2 x AH-64, C17 & 2 x AW101's. Unfortunately the AH64's puled up off the lake and disappeared before Raven Cragg, but thankfull...

An impromptu day in the mountains recently found me shivering in winds with a wind chill of -16 degrees, all in search of my first Ramstein aircraft in the Low Level envelope. A long day of snow showers and passing cloud, plus strong winds meant low shutter speeds were not our friends on the day, bu...

Sailors in the city - Manchester

A quick blast down the motorway during a late lunch resulted in catching a Royal Navy Merlin on a rotors running refuel at the City of Manchester Airport, more widely known as Barton Aerodrome. The Merlin bashed the circuit for 20 minutes before a quick 10 minute fuel stop and off into the distance....
