One from left field this month, the highly impressive Eurojet EJ200 low bypass turbofan that delivers exceptional performance to the Typhoon and Bloodhound project. This example was in the RAF Cosford Defence College of Technical Training (DCTT) and illuminated during a recent hangar night shot. The outer fan blades were spun allowing the static low pressure compressor blades to be seen behind. Shot with the shutter open for 15 seconds from rotating to stationary also allowed the outer fan image to be captured giving some detailing along with motion blur, this "blew out" the lights a bit but I think it better to leave them in rather than crop them out and lose the circumference of the engine (I'm sure some Photoshop wizards could correct this but I'm just not that savvy) . Shot 23rd January 2020
