Here's mine from Southport, it was a last minute decision to head down there - I needed some more after Blackpool got spoiled by the bad weather!

Split second timing:

Albuquerque balloon fiesta October 2019 . Freezing cold, those in the background are flying the box where the wind changes direction at altitude so you can work your way back to the field!

which even though it failed to live up to all the hype, and had many, many documented problems will still live long in the memory banks...


You think the Duxford one was bad, you should'a been at the one at Caen Carpiquet, what a disaster!

Just discovered this site a couple of days ago. This is my first post from Wings over Dallas 2019. Decided to stay late after the show and got really lucky with the golden hour and sundown.ImageWODD1 (299) by Kevin Brown, on Flickr

Welcome to UKAR Kevin - that's a pretty lovely first post too. Bootiful :up:
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

I normally use 2 systems, one is a Pentax full frame K-1 and the other is a Nikon D500. I love using the Pentax but the AF tracking is glacial at best so the Nikon is basically used for fast moving objects such as aircraft. I always take both to Riat in the hope I will get a decent shot from the K-1 which is more than just a side on picture which to be fair most any camera can do and last year I got this one of the Ukranian Flanker which I was pretty happy with.

Bit late to the party on this one!

Lots of highlights from 2019 including two visits to Marham, one for the final base visit and one for the big FINale. Great times and great memories.
However, I'll pick this one from the awesome evening show at Abbotsford Airshow, Canada.

Even later to the party...

Very "English weather" at Miramar last year, but this is the classic Heritage flight combination, would love to see the RAF join in with a Lightning II and Spitfire in 2021 ??

This isnt an airshow pic but its my favourite pic of last year. It was the week of Northolt and we went to Mildenhall and Lakenheath for a couple of days in that Really bad Storm in march.

went over to mildenhall to see if any aircraft had flown and was surprised to see a MV22 Osprey in gorgeous golden light.
