  1. Hi all, I just had time to pull out a few shots from the weekend's show out West. Typically the Friday was glorious sunshine, as was the Sunday. The show day, however, started overcast with occasional breaks and the gods onl;y decided to open the curtains and let the sun through as the show was closing! Well, that's enough banging on! Despite all that it was great to see the Alize in the air as well as the Spanish Harrier. Martin
  2. Evening all, Seeing as my RIAT retrospective proved quite popular, I thought I'd share another bunch of shots from my second busiest show of the year. Yeovilton is essentially my local airfield, and I try to spend as much time as I can up there, especially during the show week, and with no clash with Flying Legends, I was able to spend a full four days up there from the Friday to the Monday to see pretty much everything arrive, display and depart the show. So then, Friday, which was spent outside the airfield, largely on the fence at the 09 end of the runway, which is a superb location for the Commando Assault practices in particular, although sadly the only cloud we saw all day covered the sun halfway through the evening practice, killing the otherwise stunning light. For the afternoon display rehearsals, I gambled on a new location under the 04 approach, which turned out to be pretty decent, being right underneath the displays, although the jets were a little distant at times.

The latter is something I can deal with, as essentially I'm only after good shots of the Commando assault, where the light comes good towards the end of the day. Sadly though, even the pyros for the final wall of fire went tech! Nevertheless, it was still a decent day's flying, VL2014_Showday_001 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr VL2014_Showday_002 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr VL2014_Showday_005 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr VL2014_Showday_039 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr VL2014_Showday_058 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr VL2014_Showday_069 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr VL2014_Showday_070 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Yeovilton's departures tends to be drawn out across two days, with the bulk of the foreign military leaving on the Monday. The French Navy however tend to depart on the Sunday, so we headed up once again on another overcast day to catch the Rafales depart, with anything else being a bonus. I've been after a shot of a head on Rafale ever since a friend of mine nailed one at the 2012 show, and fortunately, my luck was in as the pair backtracked the runway for launching. As such, I make no apologies for the amount of them!

Highlight of the day goes to the German Navy Orion, which requested an additional flyby after take off, which thankfully was granted, as the crew preceded to fly through at full chat and silly low level, 50 feet maximum. It was a fantastic moment, and rounded up the fine show weekend in superb style.
