Lakenheath + Mildenhall 23/7 - 25/7

Post by np1991 » Tue Jul 30, 2019 5:32 pm

Hi all,

Spent a couple days after RIAT in Suffolk, was hoping for the 493rd and 494th Heritage F15s but alas they evaded me, will have to try again in September when I'm at Waddo :D
Anyway, a few of what I caught:

00-3000 does have a special place in my heart for some reason! Really fantastic set.

Hi Niall,
Great pics
We must have been standing next to each other when you photographed the Kalitta and the EP-3 (or maybe not as I was on the trailer).
Thanks for posting
Regards
Ferrari

Thanks guys, much appreciated.

Ferrari, I was in the silver Citroen Cactus at Johns field when the Kalitta arrived. Had to bolt from LN when I heard the Ep3 was running so shot it from Jarmans Lane.
Cheers Niall

Nice and sharp

Nikon D7200 with no low pass filter , crop sensor = sharp pictures

I reckon a DX with a 200mm lens is sharper than a FX with a 300mm lens ( or 200 + 1.4 converter) and a lot less money??

( Assuming no post processing )
