Thomas Castle Trust Nightshoot 2 by Threshold.aero

Post by cg_341 »

After a few years away it was nice to do my second nightshoot in the space of two months!

Starting with Tiger Moth G-ANTE, you can read about the story of the aircraft, and the trust, here: https://www.warbirdflights.co.uk/thomas ... cholarship

The Blades, possibly lined up for the final time?

And then on to the star, in my opinion, newly restored Lockheed 12 Electra Junior G-AFTL. I make no apologies for the number of photos.

Lovely set, Chris. I agree that the Electra is drop-dead gorgeous and I love the final shot.
