Re: The 'Big Yin' visits Prestwick, 02/08/20

Oh My! Got to love the 225. Never managed to catch it. Would have loved to see it parked with the 747 to get a sense of scale. Nice shots.

Re: 12 SQN & friends.

Mighty Tonka indeed! I remember going to the Buccaneer stand down and there was a fair bit of anti Tornado sentiment! 12 sqn were considered to be going backwards from real aeroplanes to having a toy machine. Exactly the same sentiment at the Tornado stand down at Marham. :) A lot of Lightning bash...

12 SQN & friends.

Popped along to Coningsby this week to get some shots of the 12 SQN jets. Last time I photographed 12 SQN they were flying the mighty Tonka. I was not disappointed. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50148869743_f7e9916ba0_h.jpg a268A7495 by timothyholden , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/6...

Marham 16/07/2020 – Grey but busy

Spent a day at Marham. The weather was grey but for Marham it was quite busy. Nice variation in approaches and take offs, some conventional and some VSTOL. They do like to play on the 01 VSTOL strip and nearby hover pads which is frustrating for photography. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50123...

The AN 148 makes me wish we had gone ahead with the twin engined BAe146 and kept building them in this country. it was another great British missed opportunity.

Re: Mildenhall & Wattisham 16/06/20

Nice set. For someone that's never been to Wattisham, whereabouts in crashgate 2? Are ladders required? Fence is tall! Historically security is not keen on ladders. They have been a tad more relaxed though. The razor wire on top of the fence is dense, 2 rolls side by side and difficult to shoot thr...

Mildenhall & Wattisham 16/06/20

Spent a day at Mildenhall, finishing off with a couple of hours at Wattisham. Bright sun and cloudy backdrop led to some nice light and cloudsacpes. Wind was right across the runway so they flew mainly from runway 11 with a few 29 departures. Nice variety of angles. https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

Wattisham 11/06/20 - Rotor wash

First time out with the camera since the global craziness kicked off. Just a few hours at the local. Brilliant sunshine for the first 5 minutes then normal Wattisham weather kicked in. Good for moody skies and rotor vortices. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49997994722_5bfd19da31_o.jpg a268A5283...
