July 2021 POTM Competition - with a twist

Post by reaper493 » Thu Jul 01, 2021 2:09 pm

This month is going to be purely for Airshows, as July is typically the busy Airshow month we are all used to, and we've all got bags of images we can enter.

Competition Rules

1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry.
2. The photograph must have been taken at a UK airshow in the past 20 years, including arrivals and departures. Please state the Airshow and date on the image.
3. The photo can be of any subject you like, as long as there is some military aviation connection.
4. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot, for example). HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.
5. The competition will remain open until 23.59 on the 6th August 2021 (UK time), to enable anyone with last minute entries some breathing space
6. The voting will be carried out by you, the members of FC, by a poll which will be created at the closing of the competition.
7. Moderators/Administrators will not be exempt from the competition, but cannot vote for their own entry.
8. The decision of the moderating team is final.
9. All images must be posted in line with the usual FC posting rules
10. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.
11. Please do not comment on entries other than your own.

I'll probably change my mind several times between now and the end of the month but here's my entry from RIAT 16th July 2017.

Incidentally while it is true that today July is very much the month for airshows in the early '90s it was June in this neck of the woods when it was possible to attend one every w/end. Air Fete was followed in short order by Church Fenton and Coningsby (an absolute must) and then Duxford's Midsummer show which was sadly dropped from the schedule to accommodate Flying Legends. I always made a point of keeping one w/end free to spend with the family.

If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!
