Northolt Nightshoot March 2024 - 30 not out!

Post by boff180 »

Hi all,

A cold and a bit blowy last night but it was great to see it so well attended and to catch up with many of you. The event was also well attended by a sizeable chunk of the current UKAR Staff team plus some old faces too - not often do you find us all in one place!

Here's a few shots of mine, I regretted only bringing my wide-angle lens as many aircraft were parked further away this time, although it came in handy for the Atlas!

Excellent set! Particularly liking the first Atlas, the Irish all lined up, and the P-3/Merlin.

Very nice, never been a fan of rear end angles so I didn't go round that far on the Atlas, but it seems I missed out, that wide angle shot is fantastic!

Good to catch up with you at the event Andy... Nice selection of images there. As others have indicated, that A400 'whale tail' rear shot is actually pretty stunning. My one regret from the night was not going around that side to get it. Fingers crossed we get another opportunity in the future.

Well done chap...
