Re: Apollo 11 as live 50 Years ago

Thanks for the kind words about the collection. Yes, 'Moondust' is a very interesting read. Apart from Armstrong and Aldrin I've been very lucky over years to meet six other moonwalkers (Bean, Mitchell, Scott, Young, Duke and Cernan) as well as a number of other Apollo astronauts who didn't make the...

Re: Apollo 11 as live 50 Years ago

I remember being up all night to watch the moonwalk. I was already interested in space to a degree but this kindled a lifelong interest (passion) in the history of Apollo. A bit picture heavy but I hope these are of interest, especially to those of 'a certain age....' https://live.staticflickr.com/7...

JP's over Cosford

A little light Jet Provost/Strikemaster action from Cosford. Always found it an airfield with a very attractive backdrop. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48094094702_7b7d9b517e_b.jpg DEA_7499 by Stephen Procter , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48094030818_1bb4d107e1_b.jpg DEA_7502...

Re: RAF Cosford Airshow 2019 - Sunday 9th June 2019

I see the four Jaguars on the southside have been noted. These I imagine were those to the left of the hangar. There were two also on the right of the hangar. Anyone know which they were?

Thanks

Sherburn Vintage and Veterans Day - 27 May 2019

A quick trip across to Sherburn Airfield to see what visitors the fly-in brought. Highlight of the day was an unexpected low flypast and near touch and go by C-47 42-24064 (N74589) 'Placid Lassie' en-route from Prestwick to Duxford for the 'Daks Over Normandy' event. https://live.staticflickr.com/65...

Re: RIAT Friday - couple of clarifications, please

My first time at RIAT on the Saturday, enjoyed it immensely. Couldn't believe how lucky we were with the weather. I'm not familiar with the orientation of the airfield so am not sure which the 'North' side is. Is this over where the hangars are and all the display teams aircrafts were parked up. Wer...

Re: RIAT - The Navy's Here..!

Thanks for the kind comments. I do enjoy photographing the static items. By their very nature they don't move so I have a game chance of getting a decent snap..! I did take some flying shots but they as usual are OK, nothing to write home about. With so much going on it gets to be a bit of a trade o...

RIAT Saturday - Il Frecce Tricolori

One of the highlights for me on Saturday was the display by Il Freece Tricolori. A very lively and slick display accompanied by an excellent soundtrack which included the splendid Italian national anthem and Pavarotti. Certainly 'Nessun Dorma' whilst they performed... :) https://farm2.staticflickr.c...

First time for me at RIAT on Saturday - what an experience..! Just a quick question. On the far side of the airfield and at down at the end to the right of the flightline, there were an awful lot of aircraft parked up. Is this where all displaying aircraft are kept during the show including the spar...

Just a few shots of the BBMF Spitfire and the P47 preparing for departure from Cosford at the end of the show. Interesting few minutes flipping between settings to snap these and the Typhoon display which was still ongoing whilst the aircraft were taxying.... https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1790/4212...
