A couple of days at LN with the Aviano's

Post by James Cutting » Sat Oct 31, 2020 12:18 pm

Afternoon all,

Managed to get a couple of days off way back in September just after my birthday, whilst the Aviano's were coming to the end of their deployment. Some great action with the locals as well as the visitors, just a shame the sun wasn't always playing ball, as is the way! :roll: Here's my bunch from the 2 days :thumb:

Nice. Can I ask are the F16 landing shots taken through the fence or over the top of it ?
Thanks Brian

Lovely set we could almost have been stood together about 3 weeks apart! Nice job on the panning shots,i do enjoy doing that at LN especially when light is so dull you have nothing to lose really,although I wasn`t brave enough on the have glas bird as it only flew once lol

Thank you!! It isn't the easiest but often rewarding especially as the light can be tough! Didn't have time to adjust for the Have Glass, it is the one decent shot I got of it!
