  1. Su-27 Flanker-B Russian Knights (81776) 1:48 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The Su-27 and sibling Mig-29 were developed as a complementary pair of heavy and lighter fighters to combat the F-15 that was in development as the F-X at the time. It first flew in 1977, but encountered serious problems that resulted in some fairly spectacular crashes, some of which were fatal, but with persistence and successive rounds of improvements it came on strength with the Russian air force in 1985, but was still plagued with problems that prevented it from being seen in oper
  2. Myself and my camera wandered down to the Avalon Airshow here in Victoria yesterday. Its a biannual airshow, and I usually try to attend on one of the trade days Shooting conditions are notoriously bad, with the harsh sun in your face, heat haze and lots of gunk in the air. Anyway, managed to capture these images. I'll hopefully have a few more to add after Thursday. I have also added a link to my full album Cheers Bruce and a link to the album here https://www.flickr.com/photos/131700029@N03/albums/72157678971013968
  3. Greetings all, Can anyone tell me either the dates of the Duxford airshow next july, or when they tend to announce? I'm trying to work out how many days of Riat to book and where I should look at hotels... Thanks!
  4. Hello! These are from last year, at the Edmonton Airshow were I live. The camera I used is a Nikon D7100 and the lens was a Tokina 150-600 mm. Thanks! Jorge
  5. 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?
  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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. Lots of good stuff on show, but as ever it was the Rafales that stole the show, just an incredible display Aero L-159 ALCA 6053 Czech Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 06/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Saab JAS-39C Gripen 39244 Czech Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 06/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr McDo
  11. Morning all, Here's selection of of my images from a superb day at Old Warden on Sunday.

  12. 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
  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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 Nikko
  16. 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 fi
  17. 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 194
  18. 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

  20. 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
  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. Morning all, Thought I'd share a few images from a bittersweet day at Dawlish last weekend. What started out as an excellent day, especially when the epic Typhoon tore up the bay, soon turned to one of great sadness as the news from Shoreham filtered through.

  24. 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 s
  25. 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 Prov
