A submission only using F-106's to equal 106 !
Answer: (12 x 9) - 2 = 106
Gorgeous aeroplanes. You could have just said 106-106+106. :wink:
Now I've thought about it, given the pairs on the flight line: - F106 squared plus F106 minus F106 squared

Re: Westland Wessex HU.5 XS484 History

Here she is at the Yeovilton Air Day 31 July 1982, did not serve in the Falklands and was used to back fill aircraft deployed down south and I believe was previously with the British Hovercraft Corporation. Still in the then out dated sand and spinach colour scheme. https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

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.

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.

Hope this helps.
