Oh dear, how very sad. The nightshoots aren't just about pretty photos, it's also a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and make new ones. With that attitude though I'm quite glad you don't come along as I don't think you would be liked very much.


Well said and good to finally meet you last night, and DeanW.

As for you Jules, you're not upsetting anybody, we're used to your silly gibberings. For somone who seems to have such a downer on these great events, you seem to spend an inordinate amount of time on these boards commenting on the participants comings and goings. I'm surprised you can see them from under your bridge.
I know you think you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realise that what I said is not what I meant.

I'll get you two Ian and Jeff, you B*****ds :tongue2: If I could stand on one leg I'd come round and kick you both. :lol:

I think it's Ian's turn to come up with the entertainment factor next time round.

I'm just hoping no one got any photos of my 'stunt man' impression.

I'd just like to echo what many others have said, a very well organised event and there's nothing that can done about weather or technical related cancellations. It was my first trip to a Northolt Nightshoot and I'm sure I'll attempt to make it back for some more.

I wasn't sure how well the Olympus OM-D would cope with the light and conditions, but fairly pleased with the results. A few of my pics can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/28717025@N03/sets/72157643059360843

I attend many airshows throughout the UK every year and travel many miles to see them and am quite happy to pay to see them when you get an average of 8 hours of flying for viirtually the same cost and much more variety.

And for people who do not know me have no right to criticise me and I have plenty of friends throughout the Uk who I meet up with every year so suggest unless you actually meet me in person your so called character assisagnation is uncalled for.

Everyone is entitled to there opinion it just seems the Northolt lot seem to be very touchy about any form of criticism and take it personally.

I shall be making no further comments on the subject

And I dont care who I upset!!!!!!

I don't know you nor am I part of the Northolt posse, but why do you feel the need to criticise this event? It Is what it is, it's not trying to be an air show with hours of flying, it's a few aircraft (some unique some special) that come over for a photo shoot for a few hours?

You stat that people have no right to criticise you, yet you are more than ok to criticise this small, we'll organised event and 'don't care who you upset'. I don't think it's a case of the 'Northolt lot getting touchy', I think anyone who can appreciate the effort Phil goes too, to arrange this event would get touchy, so what is your point?

I've never been to one of the Nightshoots before, but the idea of them is not massive variety. It's a chance to see some (not many, but some very interesting types) aircraft in ways you don't see them anywhere else. It's an event for the enthusiasts and photographers, not for Joe Public. The reason for the cost is simple. An airshow like Waddington or Cosford draws in thousands from the surrounding area as well as many from further afar. As the nightshoots at Northolt are not like that and draw in only a group of people, due to them being tailored for enthusiasts, not the public, the event needs to still get the money to break even. I think it's a fair price for what is put on, for instance, it can't be cheap to drag a CASA to Northolt for one night for some people to take photos of let alone sit there spinning the engines up and burning fuel!

Anyway, I've seen some great pics from the shoot so far, keep them coming. Particularly jealous of that Alpha. In that light it looks fantastic! :drool:

Northolt events are akin to Steam Railway Photographic Charters - the opportunity to photograph kit in a unusual setting, often with rarer machines on show.
You dont usually get much change out of 50 quid for one of those events so I reckon Phil, Lee and the guys do us a great deal. And for a good cause, not pocket lining.

Last night's no shows were a shame but I kept myself busy nonetheless for over 2 hours. A little Alpha'd out now.
But I've no complaints about cost or what we get for our money - I just hope my analogy above doesnt make the price go up! :whistle:

Couldn't agree more. It should also be remembered the proceeds from these events all go to the cause of restoring the Ops Room. The history of sacrifice by our forefathers should never be forgotten.

Thanks again to Phil for organising the evening, even if he did say I was expendible. Umph! :tongue2:


I am so glad that you are ok - I didnt come to see what had happened close up as I could see you were being tended to and I am very squemish. Hope you leg mends quickly and it didnt spoil your night. Best wishes

I saw John's scrape on his leg, and I guess he will be a bit bruised, but he was fine. More importantly I think there should be a round of applause for the chap who caught and carried John's camera for him! :clap:

The response from the Northolt team that John spoke of seemed first rate, as John said a minor incident well dealt with, leading to the evil Harlequin67 having more banter material ready for the next shoot! :lol:

Masie. That would have been me that was shouting, I am sorry for being rude,there was no offence meant. , I'd moved 4 times and I was a little frustrated. I really shouldn't have done that. shouldn't have done that. but when you said that, you might have noticed that I did also say to you that I agreed that he had a job to do and stopped.

Not usually like that I can assure you.


Just like to thank phil, lee and the rest of the team for a great night. can't wait for the next one. The Irish cn235 was something I'd never expected to shoot at night. But we are talking about Mr Dawe :clap:

To me it's also become a social event, catching up with friends, have a laugh and drink coffee. I like that.
Start every day with a smile!

Indeed, and since the beginning (2009 ?) we've seen a nice selection of rarities.
