Re: Duxford - September 3rd 2011 (UPDATED)

So seeing as people wanted some more, here they come. A few of some of the other acts, and some more of the F-15E. King Air is always good to watch and a welcome addition to the display. http://i381.photobucket.com/albums/oo254/DanielMontgomery_photos/KingAir.jpg T-28's were very well displayed, wit...

Re: 4 days at RIAT First Ever Post

Really good photos! I especially like the first 3 :thumbs: One tip i would recommend though is to lower the shutter speed a little bit more for the props and rotors, this would make them look less frozen.

Re: Duxford incident?

That's exactly what I was told happened Dan, so thanks for confirming that! Look like it's the Skyraider pilots fault then, such a shame, he certainly did look very shaken up after he got down :( From what i saw it looked as though the Skyraider pilot wouldn't have been able to see BBD due to his w...

Re: Duxford incident?

From what I saw I'd say the Mustang is a compete write off :( I didn't witness the initial collision myself (Was looking at the next formation!) But from talking to other people beside me it sounds like the Skyraider somehow turned inside the Mustang and caught its wing. What I witnessed was the th...

The First Avengers - HMS Seahawk

Otherwise known as RNAS Culdrose. Spent a very enjoyable day down here today whilst parents went off to look around some gardens somewhere. Had good sunny, if a little hazy, weather all day which meant that heat haze became a real nightmare for any shots of the aircraft on the ground. It was relativ...
