Re: Building 27 RAF Northolt

Thanks for posting Phil, a very moving video. Great to see the fantastic result of the restoration so far and the excellent use of the funds raised by the night shoots. You and the night shoot team should be proud of your contribution.

Re: RIAT again.

RIAT is a bit like the NHS, everyone has got a story where it didn't go so well and there are always gripes but we are incredibly lucky to have both.

My favourite comment from thousands about RIAT over the last few weeks

Re: Which slide scanner?

I use a Reflecta ProScanner 7200 bought second hand on eBay, excellent results.
It has 'digital ice technology' to automatically remove dust spots which saves a lot of time!
Also highly recommend the VueScan software.

Re: Night time photography.

Not Badgers or Fox's but some details here on an Owl shoot I did last week, pre focus and remote flash set up if you can predict where they will take the bait, one tip I used f13 to maximise focus depth of field.

Re: F-35 NOTAM for Monday

Wrong NOTAM - NOTAM refers to the MATZ not F-35 movements.......
There should be a more specific NOTAM for the actual arrivals, however given the 24 delay expected this to be posted tomorrow some time.
