Re: BBMF Spitfire

Nice photos. I'm a bit puzzled about the "C24" and the yellow diamond on the Spitfire shown on second photo - any ideas?

Re: Israeli F15s give the Cobra some extra bite.

Very good - wish the photos I took were even a tenth as good!
Another minor amendment (text below the fourth photo), role (not roll, although in the fighter role an F-15 can easily do multiple rolls during aerobatics).

Re: Aviation Books to read

Thanks Graham. Have put it on list of presents that my wife can give me at Christmas - putting a new camera on it as well might be a bit problematical . . . . but could be worth a try!

Re: Aviation Books to read

Hoping for an unbiased review from Graham - please!
Would be especially interested in errors, omissions, etc.
If it gets Graham's "seal of approval" then I'll put it on my Christmas present list . . . . !

Re: Horse Riders On Public Roads?

If you build a DIY vehicle on your private estate, and it has never been registered, then I don't think the DVLA would know about it - so no need for any sort of tax or even SORN? If I was training a potential F1 driver then I don't think his/her go-kart would be subject to road or vehicle tax - muc...

Re: Horse Riders On Public Roads?

If I own a vehicle and only use it on my private 100 acre (for example) estate, then I don't need vehicle tax, do I? But surely, if I use it on public roads I need road tax, even if it's called vehicle tax? These terms are getting me confused.com!

Re: Opinions wanted

As long as photo subject is OK I'm not at all bothered. However, I never "muck-about" with photos I have taken - much prefer to adjust camera position (low/high/left/right/nearer,further), lens, etc, to avoid things like lamp posts. Photoshop will never make a fortune from me! NB. Other software to ...

Re: AFDS Hunter F6

Many thanks. Looks like XG136 on B of B day was correct, and I know that XK136/A of 74 Sqn is correct as I saw that multiple times.

AFDS Hunter F6

The Air Fighting Development Squadron at RAF West Raynham operated many types of fighter, but what I'm interested in is their Hunter F6s. Specifically, did they have XG136 and/or XK136 - a query I have with my 1957 logs! I have XG136 as wearing AFDS inscriptions on sides of nose and "136" on its nos...

I heard on the grapevine that it could be Little Snoring airfield once the runway and hangars there have been improved - just a rumour though!

Re: Spotting scopes

I used a spotting scope for years, but it gets very little use nowadays - not just lack of aircraft but also I prefer to us my bridge camera which has focal length from 35mm to 1200mm. Not brilliant photos, but almost always does the job!

Re: MAKS'ED Out (2019)

It's a superb set like this that makes me want to give up aircraft photography - perhaps I would get better results if I replaced my Kodak Box Brownie camera! Well done anyway.
