Re: Classic Air Force

Today at Coventry for the WR963 photoshoot, the twin Pionneer had been moved on to the tarmac, work was taking place to remove the engines. Overheard that it and the DC6 dinner were going, whatever that means

Re: Where has XH558 thread gone?

In the Autumn issue of the guardian's magazine, in the welcome it has "........might even include the operation of another historic aircraft on behalf of it's owner. " Wonder who they have been chatting to in the background?

Re: Lightning Double Twilight Run

Think you've got it covered. TBH 300MM at dusk is enough. You'll be walking on concrete and an uneven field if you go down for the run so boots help along with a head torch. If you've not been before get there early so can look at other airframes (if you are allowed) but be prepared for how the airf...

Why was the display line etc only reviewed the week before the show, shouldn't it have been checked months ago?

Re: RAF Scampton Air Show 2017

Had no trouble getting in but I stopped over night locally. P&R worked well in morning. Base looks as If it needs some TLC. Red skips and building rubble for a background do not make for nice shots. P&R getting out was poor, signage non existent. Got off at show ground and went to wrong car ...

Sigma 150-600 Issue

Last Sunday at the BTCC at Snetterton I noticed that my shots using the Sigma 150-600 / D7200 were becoming more out of focus as the day went on. Other things then became apparent, eg the shutter would not release and trees at a distance could not be focused on. I also noticed that at the end of the...

Re: 150 - 600mm lenses - Which One?

Got to admit i have a problem with the weight of the S, met a few others at Marham who said they were as well. Monopod helps for BTCC but not airshows.

Has anyone else purchased a filter for protection or not bothered?
