Re: Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross.

A stunning set of images, Brian. I think you have it all under control, so no need for further practice. :wink:

Re: Duxford Flying Day 9 October

An nice set from which the Jug and the Lysander are my favourites. Have yet to see either, despite attending many an airshow. Maybe next year...?

Re: Dragon Lady's at RAF Fairford - 6th October 2021

Excellent set! Had it not been for the pandemic, I would have seen this rare bird at Oshkosh this year.

And if I may add a technical comment: The blacks look black, a result which many people struggle to achieve in PP. Nice work. :thumbsup:

Re: Frecce Tricolori 60th Anniversary

An outstanding set from a fitting tribute to such a great aero team. Is the G59 the ex-Zuccoli aircraft from here in Oz? Thanks for sharing.

Re: Red Rougham 18-9-21

A very nice set of images. The Staggerwing looks very sleek and so unlike its peers from the '30s. What a wonderful design. Quite a fancy Garmin panel, including an autopilot.

Re: Melun-Villaroche 2021

These were al taken from the general public area. There are some dedicated spotters enclosures, but you get more or less the same view. Thanks. :thumbsup: I note from the EXIF, that some of the images were taken at about 5pm, which explains the favourable angle of the sun. I will definitely put it ...

Re: Melun-Villaroche 2021

Wow, this show has an outstanding range of participating aircraft. Love your F86 and Beech 18 (C-45?) images.

Were these images taken from the general viewing area or from somewhere else?

Re: La Ferté Alais 2021

An excellent set, Maxime! Your panning technique is superb, particularly at a focal length of 600mm.

LFA is an airshow that I must attend during my next visit. Thanks or sharing.

That Spit looks fab! The light in all these is great, as is your PP. Thanks for sharing.

It would be very useful to us all if you enabled the camera info on your excellent Flickr site. TIA.

Re: Duxford Flying Evenings: After Hours ~ 28th August 2021

An outstanding set of images captured in gorgeous light. Sally B banking is my fave.

The light direction at Duxford was the only downside (weather was a mild 28C to 30C) when I attended FL 2017, so I'd love to attend one of these evening sessions.

I LOVE the image of the ISS moving across the sun! Truly brilliant.
Unless it's something on he surface of the sun, it appears that you have a dust bunny on your sensor; fourth ISS from top right.

I have cancelled all our accommodation, thankfully without any financial penalty. We'll have another go at crossing the ditch for the next one. As you correctly noted, we're so fortunate to be living in places where SARS-CoV-2 was essentially eliminated.
