The Eagles Nest 04/05/16 Oh & a Raptor or two

Spent the day at RAF Lakenheath yesterday. Lots of rumours floating around as to when the Raptors are leaving & with the weather forecast looking fab I decided to pay another visit to the Eagle's nest. Hope you like this small, ahem, selection! http://www.milairpix.com/yabbfiles/smilies/smile.gif 1....

P-40M Kittyhawk at North Weald 01/05/16

I spent the day today at North Weald hoping to catch P-40M Kittyhawk 'Lulu Belle' on her way to Abingdon. She looked gorgeous, it seems ages since I last saw her. I hung around to catch her returning from the show as well. Otherwise a very quiet day. 1. http://www.milairpix.com/2016/p40-3659.jpg 2. ...

F-22's, F-15's & a Tiffie 27/04/16

Up until yesterday I hadn't had the chance to shoot the F-22's at RAF Lakenheath. I also thought I'd leave it until things quietened down a bit. Was pretty lucky with the weather, which although cold at times, wasn't bad at all. It turned out to be a cracking day, glad I got there early as the morni...

RAF Mildenhall & the Gally's 19/04/16

Thought I'd post a selection of images from the 19th at RAF Mildenhall that's not 'Presidential'. I'm a big fan of the Galaxy & I haven't seen one one in ages, then to get two arriving one behind the other, well I think I had a crisis!! :D The home team's CV-22's also flew. All in all a pretty fab d...
