Always makes me wonder a little with IWM when these things get taken off not long after it’s sold out…
It's not the IWM who decide whether aircraft are removed from a flying list. That's down to the owners/operators.

I ran into some significant issues with RAW files from my Sony RX100.
I use an RX100III and RX100VI and the only problem I found with PureRAW was that it over sharpened the image so I turned the 'Lens Softness' off, problem sorted.

Re: Noise reduction options for Aviation photography

I’ve been using DxO PureRAW since it came out as a stand alone. It corrects lens distortion, barrel/pincushion, as well as noise reduction. It doesn’t straighten lines. The photo below was taken on a Sony A6500 with a Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 lens, through a dirty window in the Stephenson Hangar at ...

Re: Duxford Diary 2024

I saw a news bulletin via 'Flyer' earlier today about a new sustainable next generation development down the western end of Duxford. This sort of thing has been mooted before, I wonder if it will come to fruition? As usual, time will tell. https://flyer.co.uk/next-gen-aviation-centre-announced-for-...

Trip out later or tomorrow!
The crew have said they want to stay 3/4 days - but take that with a pinch of salt.

EDIT: Just seen a piece of video of it moving down to ARCo.

Did the F-35 turn up?
Yes, three formation passes then a missed approach and zoom climb.
I heard a fast jet fly over St Ives gone 1.15pm but nothing showed up on ADS-B but I did see the 727 as it flew over.

Is it a USAF one? :)
The picture that they chose to announce this with on Instagram certainly is. And would make sense flying with the P-47 and P-51.

Spitfires and Mustang are all very nice, but it still all adds up to a very samey display as previous ones.
