Re: EX Belgian Sea Kings heading to the UK

Even though I admit to not being a huge 'chopper' fan, Historic Helicopters is probably the most exciting place in the aviation heritage scene at the moment. I really hope that these will continue to fly in their current scheme and despite my opening remark, I really loved seeing the Wessex, Whirlwi...

Re: Prop blur on Mirrorless Cameras

Thanks for the battery info guys. I probably won't make a decision until the New Year when I'm hoping to give myself a belated Christmas present.

Re: Prop blur on Mirrorless Cameras

The thing that worries me most is battery life. I can get by with a single battery on a days shooting including a full day at an airshow. Battery life for mirrorless appears much shorter than for a typical SLR. Is that a fair assessment?

Re: Prop blur on Mirrorless Cameras

I'm mulling over whether to make the expensive move to mirrorless and this thread does nothing to make that decision any easier.

Re: Duxford Airshows 2021

I think what people are getting at is that by using the LW car park, people exiting there would travel in the opposite direction (i.e. turn left towards Royston) to the North car park where we turned left to the M11. Therefore both lines of traffic would not interfere with each other, thereby effect...

Re: Duxford Airshows 2021

What a great end to the season. It was nice to see the Kestrel flying again along with the Lancaster's only appearance this year and I really liked the Mustang and Thunderbolt display. The weather certainly helped (unless you're a photographer) and all in all it was a very relaxed and enjoyable day....

by Pen Pusher » Mon 20 Sep 2021, 2:25 pm Doesn't mean it's going to show. Lancaster was down for the BoB show and didn't appear I'm going to assume that it won't show up and therefore I won't be disappointed if that's proven correct, whereas it will be a pleasant surprise when (if) it rolls over th...

Thanks for posting Mark. I have to say it's cheered me up to see the Swordfish all but ready to take to the air again. Let's hope we will see it out and about next season.

Re: Duxford In A Different Light: Fighter Night ~ 4th September 2021

Great shots Brian, I can't believe they are handheld.

Would anyone happen to know what type of lights they were using as I'm looking for a set for a non aviation related nightshoot?

Glad it sold out, sad i didnt get a chance to get a ticket but i hope it happens again. Id much rather pay a premium to have less people and better organised than cheaper with 1000's there.
I agree, I'll just have be quicker next time.

Re: Shuttleworth Vintage Weekend 4-5th September

I got the same email and I was surprised that it hadn't been updated in line with their website, it's not like the Lancaster and Swordfish were only cancelled today. Even so, I'm looking forward to it.

I too was a first timer at LG and I have to say that I was very happy with everything that I saw. It was nice to be able to admire most of the aircraft in front of the crowd, seeing them being prepared for the show and not have to worry about landings and take offs being blocked. One or two displays...

Re: Little Gransden 2021

That's disappointing but not unexpected. Has the Lancaster either flown at or from Duxford yet? The last updates I saw were that it had some engine runs but nothing further.
