Re: My Merry Christmas!

Nice set Luca - particularly the light on our RC-135.

I hope you're enjoying Ely Squadron! :)

Re: My personal aviation calendar for 2015

Sorted for you!

In terms of the photos, the topsides of the Draken are particularly nice - I've yet to see it.

Re: Are my PM's not working on here?

What Kyle said, they are sent, but unread (probably because the admins are all off enjoying Christmas and New Year with our respective families!) :)

My 2014 [50 Images]

I didn't get out quite as much as I did in 2013 (no overseas trips this time), but I'm more pleased with the end results I think. Bit of a mix of Modern Military, Warbirds and Airshows here - but predominantly the military stuff. An early and cold start over two days in January/February at RAF Milde...

Re: USAF C130 OTT RAF Coningsby - 11/12

EC-130J I think Jamie, so I guess the one that's at Mildenhall on TDY.

Could be wrong though - that little sensor with the orange dot on the rear of the sponson is what I'm going by.

Not really the background you'd expect to see in an aircraft silhouette photo (the last one), that's superb!

Lovely light on that Trevor,

I'd suggest linking to the larger version of the image though - have a look at Step 4 here :)

Re: Avro Shackleton Night Run and Photo shoot

Bump for this - only about 45 of 75 tickets sold at the moment, so sounds like the team will be operating the event at a loss.

If anyone is unsure, please go for it! :)

Re: Lossie - JW 14-2 Week 1

Lovely set Niall - the waves heading out are rather nice (and making me rather jealous!) Cracking set mate,some belters in there. Apparently those black marks on the Herc are from hailstones hitting the airframe in Afghanistan. :-) They certainly are :) http://marshalladg.com/urgent-operational-requ...

Spec Comp October 2014 - Low Speed Panning (Less Than 1/60)

October 2014 Specialist Photo of the Month Competition This month’s subject is: Low Shutter Speeds. Low is subjective, so we've said lower than (or equal to) 1/60th to allow most people to have a chance. The aircraft must be moving as well - 1/60th of something sitting still is pretty easy!
