Very nice mate. Didn’t realise you’d caught the ‘212 last week! Great stuff.
Was a very quick smash and grab! Not caught one in ages so nice to see on what was a busy day (Y)

SPTA and Fairford

Morning all, Another selection of images from last week. With no flying at Fairford on the Tuesday, we moved over to SPTA and enjoyed probably the busiest day I've ever seen there- my first Merlin in the dustbowl was a particular highlight https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51594033652_7c71ba93e4_o...

Plenty of fine entries to consider, but the shot I kept coming back to was Tommy's in your face approach shot. Great angle and beautiful lighting 👏

This week at Fairford

Morning all, Thought I'd share a few images from what's been a productive, if at times frustrating few days on the fence at Fairford. Tuesday was a maintenance day, so only grabbed the odd ground shot, including this sunrise effort https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51582617614_56690b8c0e_o.jpg Roc...

Re: Duxford BoB Airshow- Saturday

Thanks for teh great feedback all, much appreciated.

I agree Nick, the M11 is my go-to end these days, even with the tank bank seemingly back to its old self. I think it's better suited to the lighting conditions more than anything.

Re: 48 Hour Photo Competition- Reconnaissance

Great stuff one and all, a much greater variety of types there than I had anticipated. Lots of stand out images, but it's hard to look past Norman's Blackbird spitting fire. The ultimate recce type.
