Re: Aviation- On This Day

12th July 2018 - my last visit to the Mach Loop. This was the Thursday before RIAT (the date is correct on this one!!). While you lot were enjoying scorching sunshine, it was freezing cold and a bit damp at times in Wales, as per usual! However, we were treated to two passes by an MC-130J (callsign ...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Re: Aviation- On This Day

2017 and a visit up the Mach Loop prior to RIAT. Probably the best day I've spent up there in the last 10 years or so. As well as visiting Belgian F16s, we also had Spang F16s, the usual Hawks and an appearance from the Granby Tornado as well, what a treat that was. https://live.staticflickr.com/436...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Thanks for the reminder Peter! Yes, another grey day at Cosford for the Jaguar arrival on this day in 2007. I thought that I would play it safe, I had been tempted to go to the loop but thought at least Cosford had a 100% chance of seeing a Jaguar!! Yet again, I was blighted by a rubbish lens on a p...

Garden Blackbird

So Peter sent me a whatsapp with a pic of his reflection pool. I was eager to try something similar after he'd shown me some of his great images so I've had a quick go with a large growbag tray. It's not quite wide enough to hide the tray in the final images so I may have to have a go with a home-bu...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Thirteen years ago today and it only seems like yesterday that I sneaked out of work early and dashed over to Cosford to see the second wave of the "flying tin openers" Jags arriving, 6 sqn having disbanded just a few days earlier. It was another really bittersweet moment, just awesome to see fast j...
