Unless some one attending has a spare looks like you may have to part with some pennies.

One French AF Xingu has recently departed, another one coded YM has landed 16:03.

The Danish CL60 has an etd of around 17:30.

Still plenty (by Northolt standards) of biz on the ramp.

Many thanks to Phil and the team again for another excellent evening, despite the no shows, and worth it just for the opportunity to shoot a black Meteor at night.

It wasn't all aeroplanes either. :whistle:

I'd also like to say thanks to Phil, Lee and the team for organising another great event. :clap:

Despite the late cancellations it was well worth it for the Meteor. The Xingu looked great under lights as well. A big thank you as well to the RAF Regiment and Fire Service guys. :clap:

Looking forward to the next one already!

Gents, thank you for another great event, this is for the entire team behind the event and the CO Station who permits the event to take place on his 'turf'. These events are very worthwhile and it is also nice to catch up with everybody at them. As for the support of aircraft, the French Xingu looked very good, the returning A109 was great, Meteor very nice and the BAE125 as always was great,unfortuantely the RAF Military vehicles were already moving off before I could catch them but were a nice addition to the evening.

Sadly yet again you were badly let down by specific Squadron in all of our services have made promises to support and attend and then yet again havent bothered, and yes we all know that until it touches down dont plan for it but the no show rate this time seemed worse that ever. But yet again a great effort was made by the team under the direction of Phil.

Sadly there were many photographers at this event who had no consideration for others!! And just walked across the frame whilst you were shooting, and an isolated few who had prime spots for photos who have just stood in the position for 5 + minutes after taking a photo with others waiting for the slot, especially at the top of the air stairs.
