There's a lot of bitter people on here. My question is why does it matter?

Re: RAF Marham & Lakenheath - Monday 22nd October

Cracking shots! Whereabouts at Lakenheath were you positioned for those shots, every time I've been there they've been on 24 so I've never really known where the good spots are for when 06 is in use! Same place as you would be for 24 landings, the forest entry on the A1065. :thumb: Awesome ta!

Not heard about this, what exactly is going on for this AirPower Expo does anyone know? Was thinking about heading up on 18th anyway so if theres likely to be something interesting going on that will seal the deal!

Re: Marham on THAT day

Thanks all, correct they are a tad dark. I was having a play around with settings to try and get a deeper blue in the sky. That said, a lot of other images I've seen from that day are a hell of a lot brighter than it actually was.

It was late evening and wanted to go with a bit more of a sunset vibe!

Don’t apologise mate, great set of shots. Ignore the pointlessly rude comments from the select few.

Re: Performance take offs

Chatting to a BAe engineer a while ago, Typhoons keep the gear down once in the circuit as the aircraft has to go in and have the gear serviced every so many cycles so once down it stays down to reduce the amount of servicing required. They won’t do the high speed run up the runway and high g break ...

Re: Performance take offs

Performance takeoffs are a tactical option as well. Stick it on its backside and get above the limit heights of surface to air missile systems etc as quickly as possible. Typhoon's are now the RAF's mainstay of fast jet capability with the wind down of the Tornado and the F-35 a long way away from o...

Interestingly the start of Baltops coincides with the predicted date of the arrival of the first of 617sqn F35s at Marham. Flypast maybe!?
