Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: F-15 Eagle

Nick that shot of the special going through the canyon is just... :ok_hand: Here's mine, nothing fancy, but I like this image as it captures the raw power of the Eagle along with a hint of the cheerful madness that is a RIAT departures day: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50040365457_1f2ec83f60_...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Four years ago I was at Leeuwarden for the KLu Open Dagen. This was the day after one of the Pat Suisse had crashed during their practice/validation flight and people were still a bit stunned, though as we now know, mercifully the pilot was ok. From a photographic perspective the weather conditions ...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

A lot of people were saying at the time that we should have locked down earlier, especially when events like the Cheltenham Festival and Liverpool vs Athletico weren't cancelled. I even had a Dutch friend say they were worried about what would happen in the UK as we were so slow to lockdown, that w...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Another survivor from Daks Over Normandy...as Nick says (and as I reviewed for UKAR at the time), quite the worst aviation event I have attended. That said, a whole bunch of DC-3/C-47s together in a field will never be anything other than lovely: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48260619256_f9930...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Like Mr Jennings, I was also in Normandy one year ago for the D-Day 75 stuff. On the day itself, and having clocked that it would be well-nigh impossible to get near the British stuff at Arromanches, I decided to head instead to Saint-Mère Eglise for the American war-camp which had been set-up there...

On this day three years ago I made my first ever visit to the wonderful airshow at La Ferté-Alais, and immediately regretted having left it so long. One of the most picturesque airshow locations in Europe, and with a wonderful line-up to boot. I'm pleased to report that I've been back subsequently, ...

Think I'll go with this one. It was a great moment during Anatolian Eagle last year after a good days flying, 111 Filo took us up to their dispersal keen to show off their participating contingent. I think they also let slip they were bringing the pair across for RIAT too: https://live.staticflickr...

I well remember that F1 - cracking scheme. Here's one of the Luftwaffe's wackier efforts of recent years (and my god that's saying something) - the scheme applied to 38+13 of the Fluglehrzentrum to mark the Phantom passing out of active service.

Yes, it's a de Havilland Beaver, but I'd like a bonus point because it's being flown (well, taxied) by none other than Harrison Ford... if you look closely, you can just make out his bushy beard in the left-hand pilot seat. He was at Oshkosh in 2016 to take the 1 millionth member of the 'Young Eagle...
