Re: Aviation- On This Day

I really should get round to editing the rest of the images from this day! Was it really 6 years ago that the Canadian Lancaster came over here?? There was a real air of anticipation that day in The Peak District with a fair few people dotted around the hills surrounding Ladybower. We managed to get...

not specifically mentioning a plane but

Je suis un rock star by Bill Wyman (BEA)
It actually mentions Concorde.

ELO - "Calling America" mentions a 747

Does Airport by The Motors count?

Back to 10th August 2012 and my first 'proper' Eagles in the loop after 10 years! A few GR4s and the most amazing sunset at Barmouth that I've ever seen in my life. https://live.staticflickr.com/8212/8341753927_189a17dd88_o.jpg McDonnell Douglas Boeing F-15E Strike Eagle by Ian Garfield , on Flickr ...

Re: 48 hour comp: Blue

Wow, so many great entries! Interesting to see how you've all interpreted the theme. I must give a few shoutouts to Shaun and his superb Rafale shot; Aaron's Flanker; Tuckat's Hawk; and Peter's GR4 from Bluebell - ahh happy memories of that climb, eh?! Dan's late entry of the absolutely gorgeous Blu...

48 hour comp: Blue

We had some good entries when I chose this for our UKAR staff competiton a while back so I'd like to see your shots on the theme of 'blue'. Bonus points for thinking outside the box, it's not always about the colour!

Over to you!!

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

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...
