Update.

The Tiger Moth has scrubbed due to radio problems. try again in March

The Anson is stuck up at Warton so won't make it. Try again in March

The Devon has scrubbed due to crewing issues.

On a positive note 32Sqn are going to try and get two BAe146s on the line up
Cheers Phil

Got to turn the positive into a negative, loss of those aircraft means more space for those Belgian Alpha Jets to be parked nicely as it’s the last ever chance to see them..!

And now the Chipmunk, that most reliable of training aircraft, has developed an electrical problem and can't make it!

A couple of Belgian Alpha Jets appear inbound rather than the French one.

Last visit by the Belgians Alpha :sad: I believe the Belgians stopped training with the type last week if the translation is correct :grin:

My first night shoot, really enjoyed it.

Organisation was excellent, and everyone cooperated - not getting in the way of 30sec exposures!

Pics to appear when I get time to process (I had 1.5 hrs at Heathrow on the way to Northolt, so I've got a lot to go through!)

Just a few here: -https://flic.kr/s/aHsmunuFFT

Some processing needed (particularly level - must get a new tripod that has legs that stay put!)

Quite pleased, seemed to get better during the evening!

Really enjoyable evening last night, a shame some of the stuff had to cancel but thats life.

Well done Phil and the team, the pie & mash was a really nice addition to the line up. ;)
