Re: Lockdown Part 4

Taiwan F5E Crash

Saw this incident yesterday in online news but can't find it noted on the Forum. It apparently occurred just after take-off from Taitung Air Base in the southeast corner of Taiwan at 7:30 am Local. The 29 year old Pilot ejected okay but was subsequently pronounced dead. https://www.aerotime.aero/cle...

Re: Catalina @ Loch Ness

Great set of shots in a super location. Last image appears to show stbd engine stopped & feathered on the landing run? The penultimate shot also shows same engine with prop feathered. :O Surely an unusual configuration & not a starter motor issue? :unsure:

Well-spotted! Yep, it's an F-35B facing away from the camera. Stbd tailfin is clearly visible toward the Merlin's rotorhub, port fin is not so easy to see. :)

Re: Len Calibration - How and have you done it?

That set-up Fibrous Freddie was exactly where I started in the quest for sharper results. It does rely on several physical factors including the eyesight of the person setting it up! I thought my efforts using that were the dogs danglies until I used the Reikan software. If you can multiply the foca...

Re: First Pic of the 'Aggressor' Typhoon breaks cover.

Plain black or dark grey is a must for RAF Pilots so they can easily see the opposition, just like in real life! ;) It's hard to imagine the likes of ATAC & Draken (see links below) could get it soooo wrong. :whistle: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50038148798_20505fbac9_b.jpg https://cdnsjcavo...
