Re: Shuttleworth Drive-in Airshow (Vintage) - yet more

Some fab images in this set. The park and sit in/beside your car doesn't appear to have reduced the opportunity to bring home some nice pics and memories. I presume that you booked/arrived early to get the best position.

Re: Lockdown photography in Melbourne, Australia. ***UPDATED - 22 SEP ***

Every night after dinner, my wife and I walk about 5km and, on most nights, we usually see one or two of these characters during our 50-minute walk. Last night, we didn't see a single example until we returned home to find this handsome chap waiting for us. He was hawking moths that had been attract...

Re: USAF 73rd Birthday @ RAF Mildenhall

Small the flypast it may have been, but what a fab collection of types. A very nice set of images from you, Tim. Also had a look at your Flickr page; some very nice nature images in there, too.

Gorgeous bird and well taken, Ian. The UKAR images don't look anywhere near as sharp as the outstanding originals on Flickr. From what distance did you photograph this bird? TIA.

Re: 747-400 approach to Melbourne, Australia.

That looked lovely and smooth George... Thanks for the critique, reheat. The rate of descent at touchdown is a little higher than I would have liked, but it's a good start for someone who has only flown aircraft as complex as a Piper Arrow III. Had it been a 'real' aircraft, I'm sure that it could ...

747-400 approach to Melbourne, Australia.

G'day all, during the Covid-19 lock-down in Melbourne, if the birds do not co-operate (see General Photography forum), I retreat indoors and shoot a few ILS approaches on the simulator. This one is to Melbourne's runway 16 and the sim package that I'm using is a Prepared v4 plus a PMDG 747-400 add-o...

Always enjoy viewing your images, Brian. You have a great eye for composition and the techs are excellent, too.
In Melbourne, my train carriage was like yours; it could almost be classified as personal service. Have now been stood down for six weeks under "Stage 4" lock-down.

Lockdown photography in Melbourne, Australia. ***UPDATED - 22 SEP ***

G'day all, we're currently under Stage 4 lock-down due to a serious rise in daily SARS-CoV-2 infections. Thankfully, the seven-day moving average no. of infections is dropping quite steeply, so we should get on top of this nasty bug by the end of the six weeks. The ban on non-essential movement has ...

Ditto. We have rolled over our U of W (Oshkosh) accommodation to 2021. All other previously-booked cars and hotels were cancelled with no financial penalty.
