BBMF were good which wouldn't have been said years ago . Andy by leaving early you missed the 3 hurricanes and 3 spits taking off. G...

Re: Aero Legends / Headcorn Battle of Britain Airshow

I found it a bit disappointing the formation warbird stuff and I hate to say it was boring, the only time it came alive was when the 109 appeared and there was someone who knew how to do a display.... fast low and using the height available .
The BBMF display was good and the Dak.

The Airfield has a notam for closure on Thursday 17th Aug between 1400 local and 1500 local to

Some people seem to want Duxford to fail, but for me whatever form the display is, it would be a sad lose.

Re: Pentax K30 + Sigma 50-500 metering issues

This sounds a little like my problem. Did you send off to the manufacturer or just take it to your dealer? Can I ask what lens you are using and, could I also see some of your results just to compare? (Perhaps I am hoping for too much!) I still had a warranty left on it which just covered labour wh...
