Re: Advice and opinions please

Hi Guys, Thanks for your replies....those images are really good Agg, help to reassure me about my choice of lens when I upgrade. If I could ask another question, I tend to use shutter priority when photographing aircraft, does this jeopardise the 'sweet spot' when it comes to aperture, what sort of...

Advice and opinions please

Hello all, I have promised myself an upgrade in the next few months from my old 350d and associated lenses. I have narrowed the choice down to the 50d or 550d, final decision yet to be taken especially as the 60d is now about! Unfortunately my trusty sigma 70-300 has finally given up so I am upgradi...

Re: BBMF 4 aircraft formation flight 20th august

Spitfire and Hurricane arrived at Northolt at about 18:15 and flew a great display dispite low cloud. Thoroughly enjoyed by all assembled (50 or 60 + if not more) who had waited patiently. Thankyou BBMF Shame they couldn't stop as planned but maybe with the changes we may see them again tomorrow????

Re: BBMF 4 aircraft formation flight 20th august

Should only be 3 aircraft today - 2 Spitfires (P7350 and AB910) and a Hurricane (LF363) - as the Vacher one has gone tech. As a fellow Ruisliper who is at work do you know which end they are using? From here at work at LHR it sounds like we are using 27R which would imply 25 at NHT? From the BBMF s...

Forgive me if I'm wrong but I think you may be confused with the sunset display every Battle of Britain day which is the 15th September.

Re: Queen's Birthday Flypast & practice 8-12 June NOTAMS

Hello all. I have heard that after the flypast passes over Northolt on Saturday that the Spitfire and Hurricane that have been there this week will be doing a display.
