Re: Biggin Hill Festival of Flight 2018

But last year, as said a couple of posts up, was an exception for the Biggin 100, not the rule. This years line-up isn't any different (in terms of type of displays) than the previous years of BHFoF. (No international participants, no fast jets etc)

Re: Geoffrey Wellum

Thoroughly enjoyed reading 'First Light'. A fascinating insight into the mind of a WWII fighter pilot. Blue skies sir, and thank you

Re: RIAT 2018: Thoughts & feedback!

A great day on Saturday. One of the best for years. Positives: The weather! Great to have so many fast jet displays, though the best being the Mirages, Rafale, both Swiss & finnish Hornets and the Belgian F--16. BBMF were also great, always wonderful to see that many warbirds in tight formation....

Re: Military Pageant - 1st July

Finally home after a cracking day yesterday (12 hour nightshifts after a show are always fun!). As already said, the P-47 and the Lancaster (again!) were the real standout items, with the latter using the same line as at the Season Premiere, so it seems the bend it back. The rest of the flying, as p...

The Senior Service - Fly Navy 2018

Re: June 3rd - Fly Navy III

Talking of the commentary, the other commentator asked the question of 'what relates the Chipmunk with Concorde' (or something like that) with the promise of giving the answer later. No answer came. This also happened at the Season Premiere. Is there a link, or is there some inside joke / pun that h...

Re: June 3rd - Fly Navy III

Aircraft don't seem to be flying 'round the bend'. Hearing musings that a resident under that flight path has complained about noise and the pilots are being told to avoid where possible :mad:

It was 2007 funnily enough if I remember correctly. 9:45 until 18:30

Re: Increased Noise

Thanks for all the feedback. Looks like it may have just been finger-trouble on my end. Will make a note of not pushing the ISO up to bright conditions, this is how we all learn!
Thanks again

Increased Noise

Just finished sorting my photos from Old Warden, and have noticed that all of my shots of the Typhoon are quite grainy / noisy. I pushed the ISO up to 400 to get faster shutter speeds, but I know that isn't enough to cause a problem. The only difference between these photos and ones taken last year ...

Re: May 6th - Season Premiere & RAF centenary

Fantastic day yesterday. Weather obviously helped, but all the flying was superb. Seeing the Lancaster approach on that line and the anticipation of it going 'round the bend' was great, and then to get formation passes with the Anson as well. TE311 dropping in to say hello while they were forming up...

Re: What do you do with your photos?

I very occasionally have one framed / posters if they are ones I am very pleased with. Every year though, I select about 40 of my best ones from that season and get a photo book made up, complete with captions of what it is and where it was taken. Makes a good keepsake to look back on over the years...
