Re: Northolt Night Photoshoot XVIII 100th Anniversary

Good to meet you today Sam!

Thanks to Phil, Lee and all concerned for tonight's event. Yet another great selection of a/c, and relief for Phil with the Tracker special and Navy Sea King HU5. The Tracker running for so long was very much appreciated too.

Nice one Phil, I shall book a day's holiday on Monday. Work are threatening to send me to China for two weeks sometime in September or October, so I hope the dates don't clash and I'll be back in time.

Fabulous set Phil! I particularly like the Thomson 757 landing shot. The new lens is obviously working well as they are all lovely and sharp.

Lovely stuff. The Gulfstream III is the best looking Gulfstream as far as I'm concerned, and obviously pretty rare these days. Sounds better than the newer versions too!

I think it would have been preferable for you just to alert us by PM if you had concerns, rather than "scaring the forum".

Just to be clear to everybody, this site is categorically not affected by the heartbleed security vulnerability.

I'm afraid I've had a little accident of a technical nature which has resulted in the forums being reset to how they were at 2am this morning (Thursday 10 April 2014) :( I'm really sorry to all of you that have lost posts, feel free to call me a muppet.

We did feel a bit sorry for Phil when we got there due to the cancellations, but the evening was a great success, with the CN235 and it's long ground run before departing especi...

Great set, and as has already been said, the green Gazelle is gorgeous :love:

Will it be even busier tomorrow with the big race (assuming the wx is ok)?
