Garf at Yeovilton

Garf at Yeovilton

Postby Ian G on Tue 27 Mar 2018, 3:21 pm

The second Navy Wings shoot concluded a busy few weeks of photography for me this month. Peter345 and I travelled down to Yeovilton for what promised to be a great evening's photography after the success of October's event. I do though have to admit to being somewhat disappointed as the evening was no match for the previous shoot. Highlights were the Seaking and Merlin with lights running after dark, but it seemed to take an age before other aircraft were lit up. Even then, they weren't effective until well in to the night and by that time, the rain had come. No airframes were dynamically lit like last time either with some people (annoyingly) attempting to light up aircraft themselves with torches! Big plus point was that there was no crowding at all and plenty of room (oh, and tea and biscuits!)

Despite the setbacks from my point of view, it gave me an opportunity to experiment a bit more with the camera. It was also great to meet up with some old and new faces (good to eventually chat for longer than 3 seconds Mick!!) and of course, it's always a privilege to get on-base and so close to airframes like this. Thanks to the Threshold.aero team for another successful event.

Thanks for looking!
