Nice shots mate. The Heritage Jet is excellent.

Nice to catch up last week, albeit briefly - have a good Christmas and hopefully see you over at North Weald again next year.

Re: 48hr Photo Comp: A-10

Don't have much A-10 material to offer - the weather is normally rubbish whenever I see 'em. One occasion that the sun shone was during Exercise Vanguard in 2005, but as a noob to photography at that time with basic kit and no talent, these shots do not hold up well today. :see_no_evil: https://live...

Re: Flying Legends 2021 - 10th & 11th July at Sywell (Merged)

Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but it couldn’t be an F-15 anyway as there’s no F-15 demo anymore, and therefore no demo pilot authorised to fly in the formation?

Thanks guys. A fine selection all round. Mentions to the excellent B-1s from Pete Fenwick and Mark Meades, Martin's superb Virgin 744 and three really strong contenders each from Alisdair, Shaun and Tomasz but the winning image belongs to Melvin Furster and his very pleasing photo of a Mirage 2000 t...

Re: Swiss Vampire

Lovely shots of a great subject. Appreciate the background info on the aircraft too.

Silver and day-glo orange go together so well, I wish we could have a Gnat flying in those colours.

48hr Photo Comp: Let's Burn Rubber

Okay, new theme and it's pretty self-explanatory. Looking for your best shots of aircraft at the moment the tyres hit the ground. Max three per person.

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Vipers!

But the winner for me was the really clean shot of the Makos machine in clear blue skies, and no shadows on the tail, from LN Strike Eagle ! This is the second win for this shot, as I also picked it up for my "Ze little détail" contest. Slightly different shot, but both of the same aircraft taken o...

Re: North Weald Diary 2020

Second lockdown is over so the airfield is open to the public again - just nice to be out in the sun with the camera really. The Spitfire XI was out for a local flight this afternoon, and the low winter sunlight nicely illuminated the original under-wing camera blisters that were added to the airfra...

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

I think that was the worst accident I have ever seen in F1, and it actually gets scarier and scarier the more you see it - just watching some clips online now and without the rolling footage and commentary of a live broadcast to keep your mind occupied, it just gets worse on every viewing. A miracle...

Re: BA retires entire Boeing 747 fleet

I thought Dunsfold was being turned into houses and that's why the airshows ended?
