  1. RAF Typhoon display aircraft Qu.

    Hi, One of those questions that will take a second for someone in the know to answer... RAF Typhoons seem to run a centre line tank for air shows, otherwise they are clean. Is this a CofG issue or is it more boring than that due to transit distances and loitering times?
  2. Evening all, Here's a selection of images from a terrific show at Duxford on Saturday. Arguably a finer line up than Legends, it was a truly superb way to see out my airshow season. Conditions were tricky for photography with flat light throughout most of the day, with the sun only making an appearance after the flying had ceased, as is so often the way! As a result, the images aren't the most exciting in the world, but hopefully of interest nevertheless.

  3. Southport Day airshow Pic Heavy

    So I got back to Southport today for another fantastic display. The light is very different to the evening show (see previous post) with some interesting photos. The only down side was that by the time Sally B was in the air the sun was in a difficult position, meaning I either got good pics of her in a left hand turn, or basically silhouettes. Therefore I decided to hold back a bit on those. Anyway, enjoy. Otto was much more sedate when everyone could see him. Barnstorming right down to the deck! Is this the new Ryan Air economy class? This is a nippy bugger, and hard to pin down. Mock dogfight. But all friends in the end. Thanks for looking.
  4. Morning all, Here's my selection of images from a fine show at Biggin on Sunday. It was mainly the Czech contingent that brought me back to Biggin for the first time since the last air fair in 2010, but overall I thought the show was excellent, with an decent blend of military and civilian acts.

  5. RIAT 2017

    Evening all, Thought I'd begin my coverage of RIAT with a selection of images from the two arrival days. Wednesday proved a frustrating affair with the switch to RWY 09, resulting in hazy approach shots, but the quality of trade up to that point more than made up for it. Thursday saw the usual West end frustrations, but again, it was a case of quality over quantity, though we were all incredibly grateful to ATC bringing the Flanker up our way after the initial communication difficulties!

  6. Afternoon all, Here's a selection of images from a superb four and a half days at the Yeoviton Air Day attending from the Thursday through to the Monday lunchtime to catch the vast majority of the aircraft arriving, rehearsing, displaying and departing.

  8. Evening all, Thought I'd share some images from another terrific installment of Fly Navy. Last year's line up and weather was always going to be tough to beat, but in spite of the tricky conditions, the standard of flying was absolutely first rate, particularly from the Nimrods, Wildcat, Fury and surprisingly the Catalina. I could have watched them all day long!

  9. Evening all, Here's a selection of images from what has been a busy bank holiday weekend, attending Duxford on Saturday and Bruntingthorpe yesterday. Duxford was something of a mixed bag in terms of participation, but what was good was very good, none more so than the Rafale, which was just about the finest fast jet demo I've seen. The magnificent Sea Vixen was displayed beautifully as ever, absolutely gutting to hear the news break as the show ended. I adore the jet and sincerely hope she can fly once again.

  10. Cosford Airshow 2017

    Hi, Just thought I might make a thread for this year's Cosford airshow. Looks like a great lineup: http://www.cosfordairshow.co.uk/intheair.php -Shame that the Lancaster was cancelled (removed from the list today I think) Sam
  11. 2016 was my first ever trip to the legendary airshow at Oshkosh, known as Airventure. Oh my it did not disappoint. Cannot wait to go back. I've no idea when that will be. But boy I'm looking forward to it. Here's the full gallery. https://www.flickr.com/photos/92554273@N07/albums/72157673601898586 The headquarters of EAA is also a museum. An amazing museum. Complete with authentic chunks of various B-17 and B-24 noses with nose art. It's eerie to think that at one point these pieces were once part of a larger plane, being crewed mostly by teenagers and literally fighting for their lives. Not something I can even begin to comprehend. Gave me goosebumps. 20160725-MJS_5245 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160725-MJS_5211 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160725-MJS_5261 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160725-MJS_5262 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160726-MJS_5396 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160726-MJS_5496 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160726-MJS_5567 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160726-MJS_5779 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160727-MJS_6167 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr For me, this is aviation perfection.

WOW. 20160727-MJS_6992 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr There's over 10,000 planes at Oshkosh. Literally!

  12. Hello all! So I am on a trip to Malta that I planned around their Airshow. Pretty much the only reason Malta came to my attention for a trip this year was that my last attempt to see the Polish Iskra team isn't Florennes, Belgium they cancelled. I wanted to visit Malta anyway - so made it a holiday. Thw he Airshow was actually cancelled on the 25th due to poor weather. I'm very glad I went on the 24rh where it was near perfect skies. There were not many attendees this year...but the main draws were the Polish TS-11 jet trainer display tea m "Bialo-Czerwone Iskry" and the Ukrainian Su-27. There were doubles, support aircraft, and a few extras in the static display - those photos will be added when I'm home later. Please enjoy.

  13. P-40M Kittyhawk NZ3119

    I was able to get my butt down to the EAA Airventure airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin this year. My first ever Airventure. My first airshow in many many years. And my first airshow since getting into photography. While there were numerous aircraft that caught my attention, this one I knew I had to get as many photos as I could. I should have shot more but there's just so much to see you can't really afford to linger in any one spot for too long. So why is this aircraft so interesting? Well, as I was walking past I couldn't help but notice that she looked like she was fresh from a factory in 1943. The owner noticed me and said that's actually a pretty accurate statement! The restoration had been completed only two weeks prior. And this restoration was as complete as humanly possible. This is exactly how the aircraft looked in 1943 when she was reassembled and made ready for operations in the PTO. As the owner said to me, Rosie the riveter was good, but we had the time to make her perfect. And boy is she ever perfect. The gun sight is fully functional. There's a gun camera complete with film! Enough talk. Here are a few photos with far more up on my flickr page. Thanks for looking. 20160731-MJS_8741 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr Another point of interest. This isn't just any P-40M that happened to be painted in these colours. This really is NZ3119! These are the same colours she wore way back in 1943. While this aircraft is not known to have scored any kills, the pilot of this aircraft did get a kill in his previous aircraft. 20160731-MJS_8520 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160731-MJS_8530 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160731-MJS_8559 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160731-MJS_8561 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr Although he did not fly this particular P-40M, this aircraft was signed by the highest scoring ace in the RNZAF, Geoffrey B Fisken. 20160731-MJS_8548 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr The level of detail is jawdropping on this bird. Everything on this aircraft is as it was when it was new in 1943. The individual markings were not just copied in appearance. But they were applied was using the original technique. 20160731-MJS_8566 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160731-MJS_8569 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160731-MJS_8575 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160731-MJS_8579 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr I had no idea P-40's had a cloth liner in the wheel wells. Wonder how long they actually lasted? 20160731-MJS_8581 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr I learned that along with keeping out FOD, there was a second purpose to taping the guns. It indicated to the pilot the guns were armed and ready to go. 20160731-MJS_8594 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr 20160731-MJS_8599 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr Nice chocks! 20160731-MJS_8617 by _m_sinclair, on Flickr If I ever get the chance, I will happily shoot far more detail shots of this magnificent warbird.

  14. So i just got a Nikon D3300 and would like to do some (very) amateur airshow photography with it. I dont really have much money to spend and accept this is hardly enough to get a decent Lense but i was wondering if either of these lenses would work: Nikon 55-200mm VR - I know 200mm isn't widely considered enough, but with a crop sensor would it be enough for airshows at Duxford and Headcorn where the planes are fairly close? Sigma 70-300mm APO - I have heard the image quality is decent but the autofocus is a bit rubbish. has anyone had any success with this lense? I have looked at the Nikkor 55-300VR but i can't afford it really, as my max is about £130. If i really can't get ANYTHING good for that i may be able to stretch it a bit. Will

  16. Good evening all, I've been following some of the builds on this group build for a month or two and alas last night I decided to enter into it. So, here I am- my first group build! What am I building? Well, during the "black friday" sales the Airfix Gnats were on sale for about £2, so I got 4 of them! I have already completed one (as seen below) as "what-if" British Airways Gnat (Note: NOT PART OF THE GROUP BUILD!) On a more serious note, the relatively recent incident regarding Kevin Whyman and the Gnat Display Team has given me an idea of what to do with the other 3 Gnats: the red and white "striped" gnat and the yellow gnat on either side of my Avro Vulcan (hung from the ceiling) with Whyman's red arrows gnat ahead, nose up and soaring into the heavens. Things that I have noticed about the kit during my BA gnat build and a previous OOB build is that: A. The landing gear legs need to be fully secured before the gear bays are inserted into the fuselage B. The seats need to be painted before they are glued to the "back-walls" of the cockpit C. Pitot probe is sturdy but not invulnerable! D. The underside antennae can be damage easily, so be careful! -It is also worth pointing out that these gnats will be built with the undercarriage retracted so the gear bays aren't a critical feature. Cue the pictures!!!: Picture of the 4 Gnat kits (note the Vulcan mouse-mat, i'm a huge Vulcan fan ) British Airways Gnat (not part of the GB) British Airways Gnat (not part of the GB) The aforementioned Vulcan (done many years ago when I was entering into the hobby, painted with a grey that was too dark ) So, that's it for today! Thanks for stopping by Kind Regards, Sam
  17. Evening all, After Cosby, I thought I'd share some images from my final three events of the year last month to round off what's been a largely enjoyable season. Firstly, a handful from a day on the fence at Yeovilton to catch the Sea Vixen performing for her supporters, with added Swordfish as a bonus.

An absolute nightmare of a day getting to the airfield and subsequently home, but one which was totally worth it for the sheer number of aircraft present and the significance of the occasion- one of those 'I was there' days.

  18. Thought I would share a few photos from yesterday Yorkshire Air Show held at Church Fenton (now know as Leeds East Airport). It was a bit overcast to start but improved during the afternoon. C-47 Skytrain Spitfire XI Meteor NF11 Mig 15 Spitfire LF vb & P-40F P-51D Ferocious Frankie A pair of Gnats And finally the lady I think we all came to see. The last time I will hear and feel that wonderful Vulcan sound. More photos of XH558 and her friends can be found here . The programme says that the Yorkshire Airshow will be back next year, this time run over two days, 2-3 July 2016. Hope they sort out the car parking by then!

  20. Evening all, I've been rather quiet on here for a while now, as my modelling takes a back seat to my pursuit of 1:1 scale aircraft. July is always a hectic month for me, with the headlining shows all taking place within a few weeks of each other, so I've had very little spare time that hasn't involved watching aeroplanes, taking thousands of photos and subsequently ploughing through editing them. In truth, I've barely scratched the surface of many of the shows, but though I'd share a handful from the best few weeks of the year, starting with a the WW1 commemoration show at Old Warden at the start of the month.

  21. Hi Everyone, Here are some of my photos from the Eastbourne airshow, I've tried to pick my favourites out of the almost 1,000 photos I took, but still this is going to be very photo heavy. If you want to view the full 135 photos, they are in an album on my facebook, linked here : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.488656594634727.1073741851.100004711722357&type=1&l=0724244a56 Anyway lets kick off the photos, I hope you like them. I'm trying to persuade my missus to let me go to either Bournemouth or Shoreham airshow (preferably Bournemouth) this weekend. Chinook Jet Provost Breitling Wingwalkers Typhoon Spitfire MiG-15 Grob Tutor Bulldog Sea King Eastbourne's Tamar class Lifeboat (At High Speed) Hawk T.2 Blenheim Norwegian Vampires P-51 Mustang "Ferocious Frankie" Vulcan XH558 Dakota Patrouille Reva The Blades Red Arrows Anyway, thats all of the photos I'm going to post. You can view the rest on the facebook link at the top. These photos were all taken with a Canon EOS 20D DSLR body with a 100 - 400 mm canon lens stuck on the front of it. Boy was that heavy without a tripod, but made life easier when tracking the planes. They have all been edited to improve colour balance etc. Please let me know what you think. All the best, Rick
  22. Hawker Hunter T7 volume

    Good evening. I'm wondering: how loud is the Hawker Hunter compared with a Tornado flying at the same altitude? One is flying at the Wings and Wheels airshow at Shuttleworth on Sunday, so I really need to know as I have a phobia of loud noises (particularly low flying jet aircraft). Thank you in advance.
  23. Wonderland Models would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to see us at the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford. RIAT is always a highlight in the summer events calendar, and this year did not disappoint. It is always great to see so many familiar faces. We hope you all had a fun weekend at the show, and took advantage of some of our bargains while you were there. If you missed us at the show, don't worry, we still have many great sale items available on our online store, as well as our usual wide range of plastic model kits, diecast models and radio controlled toys.
  24. Royal International Air Tattoo 2015

    The Royal International Air Tattoo is taking place at RAF Fairford on 17th-19th July 2015 and Wonderland Models will have a stand there as usual. We will bring a selection of plastic models kits, diecast models and radio-controlled aircraft and helicopters from all the leading manufacturers including Tamiya, Revell and Airfix. As well as new kits we always like to bring a range of bargains and this year we will have a selection of Airfix and Revell kits at up to 50% off RRP, plus reduced-price Italeri, Trumpeter and Tamiya aircraft kits as well as some bargain diecast models from Corgi and Sky Guardians with many models half price or less! There is a limit to what we can bring with us so if you want to get the best bargains get there early before they sell out. Our stand will be in the usual spot in the Blue Zone on the showground map. Just look out for our blue and yellow marquees. It looks like being a superb flying display. We look forward to seeing you there!
  25. Bournemouth 2014 in Stills

    Bournemouth Air Festival is an annual event in the south of england as many of you may know. It has become increasingly popular over the past five years especially with 'holiday' makers especially when the sun is out. I thought i'd share with you a few snapshots of the two days I spent there: (images are saved on my deviantart.com account) Chinook HC.2 ZH777 (flew on this girl on my first cadet flight) Douglas Dakota of the RAF on her turn away from the beach. Westland Merlin of the RN, showing off the radars on her belly Westland Merlin slinging a precious load, the winchman was a bit cheeky on this occasion. Only eight appeared last year after one of the members welcomed a new baby girl into the world. Again, a broken diamond formation as only eight managed to turn up to the festival. A famous duo of the Battle of Britian memorial flight Victorious V-Bomber, Vulcan XH558 climbs out on her 'howling' engines. I hope you like them, any feedback, as long as it is not abusive (i hope) is welcome. enjoy
