Coningsby 30th Apr - D-Day Typhoon display

completely unexpected, for the D-day Typhoon to be used & the gorgeous afternoon weather. Not many of us there, so thought I'd post some of my pics. It's a hired 400mm F2.8 prime - this was the first use as well, 7D body - thanks for looking & hope you like :) http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a58/TV...

Re: Red Arrows display at RAFC Cranwell Thursday 13th March

Might you indeed - that'd be fun! :thumbs: (could I apply for a temporary loan of a *cough* small item from you again do you think?) ;) Still wondering about timings for the earlier part of the day - hoping they might work favourably too... Indeed - depends if the big noisy one is up at 13:00 that ...

Re: Red Arrows display at RAFC Cranwell Thursday 13th March

That corner (with the side road) is enough for 5/6 cars, so should be fine.

I may be there myself.........

Have a look at this page.

I've photographed training from A/B - but be very careful of the A17 !

Re: Night Flying @ CON

No - don't let night flying put you off, I'm over for a couple of day's that week. Would suggest 11am ish, it's great seeing them in the dark, so if you can stop until late evening do so.

Re: Opinions requested

A late afternoon / sunset displays, followed by an evening shoot (especially with the Lanc included), would be fantastic. Personally I'd love to try that star trails with a phoon in..........

I'd happily pay up to £25 for a good afternoon/early evening.
