Northolt Nightshoot (Photo heavy)

Post by CameronSys »

Spent a very enjoyable afternoon and evening at RAF Northolt photographing at the nightshoot, and also the arrivals beforehand. It's a shame that engine runs were prohibited this time around, but not the fault of Phil and hopefully some sense can be seen before the next one! A good selection of aircraft under a brilliant sunset made for something different to the usual - so well done to Phil and his team for pulling it all together, even with a revised date.

First up, the arrivals! (Guttingly missed the Pembroke land as I was walking to the Sainsbury's.. sounded nice going over, though :roll:)

I checked that traffic was stopped both ways before I walked into the road a bit, even then I kept looking :lol:
