Re: RIAT 50th Anniversary Book

It is a well produced, weighty tome with a fabulous collection of photos printed on high quality paper which accounts for the high postage cost I guess. I was particularly impressed the quality of the photos from the early years, and it does make a good read. Another 👍👍 from me.

Nice! The only one I've seen is the somewhat dilapidated example (or it was in 2005 when I was there) that is at the Midland Air Museum at Bagington. There are precious few left😢

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp No 100: Get ya' Daks out!

What a tremendous selection of photos. A fitting tribute to a great old lady. As always picking the winner is difficult, and necessarily subjective but here we are: 3rd place: Shaun's black & white image with the red poppy in the foreground; 2nd: Andy Heap's second shot of the "RNZAF" example in fli...

48 Hour Photo Comp No 100: Get ya' Daks out!

I was lucky enough to win one of these competitions a few weeks back and chose Douglas aircraft excluding the Dak. For this our 100th competition, this is your chance to show us your Dakotas, C-47s and also C-117s. If there's an interesting "back story" to the photo or the airframe, go ahead and tel...

Re: 2022 Lakeland or Oshkosh?

I've got my 2020 Oshkosh tickets that have been rolled forward to 2021 but don't know if I'll want to go even if it goes ahead. They left cancelling the event til (unnecessarily) very late last year.

Sorry I can't help with your question as I've not been to Lakeland - apologies!

Although my material will be a bit sparse over the next couple of months, I'm absolutely in favour of continuing in whatever form. This thread together with the 48 Hour competitions have been just brilliant.
