Bruntingthorpe - My part in Neil Cave's night-fall

Postby Wallace » Thu Mar 16, 2017 6:02 pm

An interesting day, which started for me at 2AM. I didn't want to wake at that time but I did. On the go at the back of four, stopping off at the SYAM, Doncaster by 10AM.
Arriving at Bruntingthorpe front gate with about a million other guys at 2PM.

Depressing, overcast day, grey skies and an none to exciting photo session to start with. I could have gone home at this point but I stayed on for the night-fall, when things got a lot better.

The highlight was hearing two Buccs run up their engines - YES!
A good job that I keep a set of lug-plugs in my camera bag because these babies were loud.

Left at chucking out time at the back of eight for a hotel half an hour up the road.
I had to laugh at some guys leaving early because they had a two hour drive ahead of them!
On the road at 7AM, Solway Museum wasn't open and home by the back of two... very tired but happy.

I hope that you don't mind this post being a wee bit picture heavy...

Everyone else has done wing fold piccies , so why should I be different? A b1tch to mask with the grey sky and too sharp outlines, not my best work.

I love high contrast monochromes so there are a few in this set.

... and for my next trick boys and girls....
My survival instinct kicked in here, maybe it wasn't such a good idea to be standing in front of a Bucc at high engine trust.

A staged QRA scramble, with so many figures it was murder to mask this lot up.

One thing that I have learned is to look behind for photo opportunities.

Excellent pics.
Everyone should be made to go to Bruntingthorpe at least once. It's brilliant.

I'm gutted that I couldn't make it to this event. Cracking set, I really like numbers one and four (wing fold). I'm hoping to get to one of the Cold War days at Bruntingthorpe this year. :thumbs:
