I might actually try and make the next one Phil...

How's about a QinetiQ Harvard/Tucano, DA-42, Ramstein C-21?, Wallop Lynx, UAE AW139 from Premiair.

The suggestion of the RNLAF AB412 is a great one as they haven't got long in service now.

Ohhhh looking forward to this providing its held a during the last two weeks of the month (my off weeks :smile: )

With regards to wishes for visitors I agree with people in saying props and rotors are great for photography - especially if running :rock: Speaking of running would it be possible to ask crews to be present during the shoot to put some lights etc. on the machinery. Not to mention remove the engine covers etc. Maybe even have some participants arrive during the shoot and leave engine(s) and beacons running at idle for say 3-4minutes after reaching thier parking position :tongue:

If you don´t ask....... :whistle:

Thank you for your comments Egon, We have had crews do that very thing on previous events. It all depends on the circumstances on the day. :biggrin: I fully expect the next event to be towards the latter part of September to deconflict from Battle of Britain celebrations

Phil, not easy, but a Saab JAS 39 Gripen would be a very big "rabbit from the hat" as invites go. :drool:

F15 will not attempt Northolt's runway it is too short.

I don't know about sensible suggestions for this event.

So here goes:

Finnish PC-21, a very new addition to the Finnish AF fleet.
Any Transall from any country.

That's asking to open the floodgates Phil! Knowing how hard it is to get anything to turn up anywhere, whether day or night, all I would say is "anything that hasn't been before" . However seeing as you asked, how about a Coast Guard Sikorsky S-92 up from Portland, a 5 Squadron Sentinel, Royal Navy King Air and Dauphin , Beech Shadow R.1,Agusta Westland AW319 from Shawbury, QinetiQ Alpha Jet,Andover XS646 and BAC One-Eleven ZH763 and, B-N Defender T3 ZH004 from Aldergrove for good measure. Now I know some of these might be impossible to get for a September nightshoot, so I shall be reasonable and give you the option and challenge of seeing if you can get any of them to the June photoshoot as a back-up! :whistle:

Well you did ask for sensible suggestions. You can only ask you know and all those are UK based. If you had no suggestions, you might be tempted to roll out the 32 Squadron fleet again! Unfortunately, due to work commitments, it has not been possible to get to Northolt in time for previous night photoshoots. Would you care to use Lyneham for a change?
