Shooting Gazelle

Post by Ian G »

My take on last night's night shoot at Bourne Park. Great stuff and thanks to the organisers. I had a terrible journey down in some of the worst weather I've ever driven in and the journey back wasn't much better!! However, tea and cake provided on arrival was very welcome! I've got some more photos to add but here's a few for starters.

I was, incidentally, the odd one out wearing the high-vis orange coat while everyone else wore yellow!!

Nice shots Ian - particularly like the 32 Squadron machine.

However, I do have a bit of a soft spot for XX406 - which was the first Gazelle I flew in at Shawbury back in 1989! :love:

Very nice shots. I always find that the very low down shots make them look like model aircraft!
