Re: Evening at London Heathrow.

Having recently received pelters for daring to suggest someone's pictures were not of the greatest standard, all I will say is that with 103 views and no comments you must make up your own mind why no-one has said anything! If you can do better please show us. Having tried to do the same (and faile...

There was nothing wrong with it. A national disgrace that they're not still in our inventory, while we're overpaying for those over-complex hideous American heaps.

Re: fence

Took me a while to find a recent one with the fence in but here's the 27 end fence at RNAS Yeovilton. It's good to get there early so you can stake your claim on a spot up front. https://c7.staticflickr.com/8/7431/27768967646_9c8b1e7181_c.jpg Whichever spot you choose, picket carefully....

Re: Biggin Hill festival of flight

Nice photographs Ben. The Hurricane pictures are showing the vortices from the blade tips squeezing the moisture out of the air, in the same way that you see airliners with vortices off the wings, except in a circle not straight!!!! Rotors on a helicopter will also do the same thing. The aerodynamic...

You just don't get it do you. You are not supposed to be there. Nor are we (enthusiasts) supposed to be in a lot of places we 'have' to go to in order to pursue our hobby. It's an interesting attitude to take - granted, a 100% legally correct one - but nonetheless interesting. It is an attitude tha...

People are still going to miss their line up shots on 27L & 27R. In your OP you said you get shouted at and moved on. Obviously the BAA and or HAL do not want spotters and photographers up against the fence then? Despite being moved on you have by your own admission kept going back and then you...

Re: 2016: The Biggest Season In History - The Enthusiast's R

moving the aircraft further away will make no difference it just means that in the event of an incident the aircraft will fall further from the airfield however the end result might still be the same if it lands in a populated area. Interesting view, Have you told this to the CAA during the consult...
