Re: October B52 deployment

I was there last year in January for the four ship MITO departure, that was at Mid day, so I guess it's pot luck.
Good luck to all who go for it.. :thumb:

Re: Cameras & setups

I have two Canon 5d Mk 2's with battery grips, a Canon 100-400 L series and 17-40 L series, taken a long long time to get them, have a tripod and gimbal along with filters.
That'll do for now, unless Lenny Lottery comes along :Wow:

One of the press releases stated 'Brailes, Banbury' hence my reference to the latter. However none of the press releases seem to be accurate in any form.
No surprise there then Thunder :D

The first a/c landed back an hour after the alleged incident, it doesn’t take that long from Banbury to Fairford does it :S
The offending piece came to earth in Brailes, Warwickshire, not Banbury. :S
Still not an hours travel time I wouldn't think!!
