Re: Aviation- On This Day

Seems I have a few from this day, including a Northolt Nightshoot from 2011. I'll start off with a couple from a year ago today. Westland doing some training at the disused airfield at Davidstow Moor, the wife and hound waiting patiently in a car in the background. https://live.staticflickr.com/6553...

15th Jan 20, my first day of the year back at Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre and I found myself painting fences (all the interesting jobs had been nabbed by other volunteers). Fence painting suited me fine, switch off brain and get on with it while listening to my scanner for anything of interest...

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp - Best of 2020

It has not been a bad year, one of the highlights was catching two of the new RAF Poseidons on the runway at St Mawgan (sorry - Newquay) back in June/July, what with the CP-140 in March it's almost been like the good old days. Otherwise it's been the usual chasing around some of the local likely spo...

Four years ago today I was doing what the chap in the background was doing, walking my dog at the disused airfield at Davidstow. His dog looked remarkably well disciplined, alas mine isn't and I had to shove mine in the car quickly. If there was a 48 hour comp for photos featuring horse/sheep/cow po...

Re: Airshow melancholy.

The first show that I remember going to was the RAF St Mawgan BoB display in 1970, although my parents assured me they took me to a show there when I was a toddler. I've attended 2 or 3 Airshows every year (I think just RIAT in 1999) but haven't been to an Airshow since 2016. I miss the shows of the...
