Payerne, Switzerland - 11/10/18

As well as doing Axalp, I also stopped by at Payerne Air Base where most of the remaining F-5s are based along with F-18s too. Payerne differs from Meiringen in that there's a much higher fence surrounding the base that you'd need a ladder to shoot over if you want any kind of background in your pho...

Axalp 2018 - 9/10/18 & 10/10/18 (Big Post)

Been working through some Axalp images this week since getting back and decided to post a few on here for everyone to see. A little bit of back story first though: I first heard of Axalp a very long time ago, this magical place in the Swiss alps where one could see aircraft screaming through the val...

Re: Music thread

Just bought Bowie's 'Blackstar' as the latest addition to my record collection, really great and weird album!

Ended up watching Public Service Broadcasting last night at Larmer Tree Festival who put on a good show, not one of my favorite bands but great fun nonetheless.

Re: Airday 2018

Absolutely agree on the static barriers! Pretty much vacuum formed to the fuselage of the Lithuanian C-27, I understand people wanting to go up close to these things but it's a right pain for photos even with a wide lens! The Commando role demo stole the show for me this year, I was absolutely in aw...

Re: Music thread

Got some Pink Floyd playing whilst looking through Yeovilton photos - I can't listen to Shine on You Crazy Diamond without picturing the scene from 'Sailor' with RN Carrier ops on Ark Royal which featured the song, so it's especially fitting!

Re: Air Day 2018 Arrivals

Got an idea of the likely route for the Mi-8? Can't make it down to Yeovilton so will just have to keep my fingers crossed it might be near me :lol:

Chalke Valley History Festival - 1/7/2018

This years CVHF took place over the course of last week - I'd seen photos from the previous years at the old site and thought I would give it a go and enjoy a nice walk in the sun with some warbirds in the skies too. Advertised on their website was quite an appealing selection, but no times or days ...

Re: Aviation Rip Off's

I didn't go to Marham - I was initially tempted but couldn't have made it anyway. From what I've seen online, photo opportunities were pretty limited, 'security' measures were put in force surrounding the F-35 and loads of busy cluttered backgrounds? By the looks of things I can see why people would...
