Lyneham + Plain + Northolt = 300 Miles...

Post by RickIngham »

Busy day today firstly at Lyneham to see the special tail Tornado GR4 then on to the Salisbury plain which was saturated in water and hardly any flying so headed up to Northolt.
Thanks to Beermonster and Dazza for pushing my car out of the mud :grin: and great to meet Silverwingpix and Trevor Reoch...
A superb evening at Northolt, a massive thanks to the organisers. Been mentioned a lot already but why were the big aircraft close and the smaller stuff further away? I forgot my 100-300 so couldn't get as near as everyone else but hopefully this is something different...

What a great set of shots from what was obviously a really good day for you! Likewise it was great to meet you after all this time.

I had the same issue with the smaller types being too far away, but all in all another good Night Photoshoot.

Thanks for sharing the set. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Although there was a photo shoot on, the SERCO engineers were still working and there was a 146 being tinkered with in the hangar and the possibility of it needing an engine run during the evening. Space had to be left between the hangar and the trainers so that the 146 could be manouvered in and out for access to the airfield.

Hope that explains all.
