Belgium Airforce Days 2018 - Kleine Brogel (big post)

Took me far longer than intended to process these and its a very large post! The shots are taken over the 3-days of the Belgium Airforce Day at Kleine Brogel airforce base. Its not a bad place for photography in the early morning to early afternoon but after that it becomes a nightmare of sun in you...

Re: RAF Marham Enthusiasts Day/ Night shoot

well said Gary No one is forcing anyone to go. The station wanted to make a certain amount of money from the event and combine that with the limited number of people you get the £50 price. If that's too much for you, don't go, do the usual and watch the jets from the fence as they go by. Probably ir...

Re: Dave is a Lemon

Some interesting comments etc., I'm no real Dave fan (esp. the "B" model) but the some of what the guy says is probably true form a certain perspective Have any of you actually listened to what he's said? To summarise... The F-35 is a turkey because it's a multi-role platform With the same...

Re: Yeovilton Air Day 2013

I don't think its realistic that a guy flying F18's for his living isn't capable of flying a display routine.. I'm pretty sure if he wasn't up to the job, he wouldn't have been selected in the first place. It happened a couple of years ago, with the Blue Angels CO stepping down a couple of shows in...

Re: RAF Marham - GR4's For Queens B'day Flypast

Thanks @blackcat, yes agree on the wind but as you can see from shot-5 the third one was well and truely in a heat haze. 115 was one of the flying spares. She was actually the first back and declared an emergency with a hung, full wing tank. They brought her in hot and fast but he stopped just short...

RAF Marham - GR4's For Queens B'day Flypast

Took the trip up to RAF Marham to watch the GR4's for the Queens Birthday flypast depart / recover. They fielded 8 jets, the two 617 special tails and 6 Marham birds (mainly 2-sqn) + one ground spare. 6 were for the fly-past with two flying spares. They departed as Gibson-1 and 2 with a special tail...

Luton "Airbus" Airport 21/04/13 - Do Boeing Build Planes?

OK, I was very bored on Sunday so decided to go to Luton Airport. Its only 15-mins away but I rarely visit, however the alternates the Wif was suggesting I could do instead were not appealing. Anyway after about an hour there I was ready to beleive that Boeing had given up making commercial airplane...
