Post by Zymurgy661 » Fri Jun 17, 2016 4:00 pm

June 2016 Specialist Photo of the Month Competition

This month’s subject is: Overflights - images of military aircraft overflying the airspace. No underside approach shots, we are looking for 'dot spotting'/contrail type images

If in doubt, feel free to ask a member of staff!

Photography Competition Rules
1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry.
2. The photograph can have been taken at any time
3. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not, (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot or another aircraft, for example). HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a staff member.
4. The competition will remain open until 23.59 on the 1st July 2016 (UK time), to enable anyone with last minute entries some breathing space.

7. The voting decision is final.

No contrails from the BBMF, but overflying from my perspective.

TWO B-2's over my house in 2014, to say I was chuffed is an extreme understatement!

This C17 was flying along on it's own from NAVPI to Marham, then the 2 F15's who were much lower heading back to Lakenheath, decided to go for it and catch up the C17
which you can see, they did successfully - Don't you just love those Reapers :clap:
