East Fortune from the hill

Post by toom317 »

Great day up on the hill, hoping to get the Blenheim and the P3, which happened, along with a cracking Seafire. The L4 put in its usual appearance and didn't disappoint, and a nice pass from the Pitts specials. The Reds though distant, did manage a few close passes throughout their display.

Nice set, it's a bit ironic that we pretty much never see the P-3s flying at shows here in Norway - great catch :)

What a fantastic shooting location? Well done to you for the gamble & amazing results. The irony of a Maritime Patroller with it's weopons-bay open over a corn-field is hard to ignore! Agree with others, #4 is the pick of a fine set. :clap:

We spent much of the Sea King's display making low-quality jokes about the chap 'drowning' in the corn field. :lol:

Great photos! I cannot fathom out the vantage point at all. 4, 7 and 8 are my favorites!

Worth it for the Blenheim shots alone. Might see you up there next year!
