It was a great pleasure to have known Paul over the last 20 or so years. He will certainly be missed.

Re: AF Flight Test Centre - Edwards AFB - more pics added

It is a lot more difficult these days, you have to apply for a place on the monthly coach tour which you get on at the gate. Sadly you can't take cameras or phones so sadly I don't have any pics from my visit last month.

Well worth it if you get the chance.

Re: Pic 'n' Mix 1985-1988 Early Days

It was a different P2 which was damaged by vandals after the forced landing, G-BJAX was withdrawn from use in the mid 90s and following a few ownership changes was last seen in Germany with Meier Motors as a source of spares. The RCAF Harvard was damaged at Little Gransden and subsequently rebuilt b...

N11SN donated it's engine and other bits to G-IYAK when it was made to look like a Yak3. This is the aircraft that lost its wing at Wanaka this year

Re: B-1B at Oshkosh TWILIGHT afterburners

It was a fantastic display, the ultra light was one of the paraglider things that was part of the next act, he took off from the ultralight strip and flew over the crowd towards the display line. Shame it resulted in the B1 cutting its display short.

Photo Editing Platform Advice

Over the years I have taken thousands of photos, however other than storing them away I have done very little with them.

Over recent weeks I have been thinking about doing something with them and wondered what the prefered platform (Mac or PC) is to start editing them a little?

Re: Photos of the LAST airshow I shall ever attend!

RIAT and Old Warden are still worth while. Nice pictures but not the most exciting participation! To be fair Seething is a local charity event which attracted 2 Spitfire, a Hawker Nimrod, a P51 Mustang, a number of other vintage aircraft together with some aerobatics to entertain. Doesn't sound a b...

Canon 7D Mk2 CF Card Recommendations

Hi, I have recently bought a 7D Mk2 and need to get a CF card. I was wondering what those who have experience of this sort of thing would recommend in terms of: Make Best Capacity Speed Anything else I should bear in mind I am mostly using it for still photos, but may try a bit of video. Many Thanks

Canon 7D MkII

Hi,

I have been thinking for a while about buying a second body to go alongside my Canon 60D. I had initially considered the 70D but am leaning towards the 7D MkII and was wondering whether anyone else had experience of these and their various merits.


Many Thanks

I have read all the bits on the Web regarding spec, but just wondered whether anyone had experience of the two? In terms of ...
