Re: Malta Air Show 2017

Some very nice shots here of some rare scenes No flying display pics though? what's the score there, too far away over the sea to photograph well? The Display is over Smart City, I didn’t bother with it myself. But it’s pretty easy to go and do. Some suggestions about next year not happening due to...

Well, that was just excellent! You don't get much for £15 these days, but we got to be pretty close to the action today! Although the weather was a challenge at times and some periods of nothing moving, I had a very good day. Many thanks to Kev and the team, who handled the day very well. One gripe,...

I took the view that as it was the 70th anniversary that something a bit special was going to happen. So whilst the tickets were at their cheapest I bought for each day. Booked the time off work and rolled the dice. Everybody had the same choice didn't they? Well, no. Not everyone can get the Frida...

Re: RIAT 2017 (Discussion & Participation Thread)

Do aircraft tend to roll to the end when landing on 09? I can't remember too well. I like to be at 27 end really and because they prefer that end too, as soon as it's possible to use 27 they seem to switch to it. I don't mind getting ground shots, just don't want to miss everything altogether. almo...
