  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. 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 McDonnell Douglas F-4K Phantom FG1 XV586/010 Royal Navy 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 Boeing C-17A Globemaster III 92-3292 US Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 06/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Northrop F-5E Tiger II J-3085 'La Patrouille Suisse' Swiss Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 06/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Extra EA 300L JY-RFE Royal Jordanian Falcons RNAS Yeovilton 06/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 36 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 07/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 36 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 07/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 36 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 07/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 45 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 07/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Aero L-159 ALCA 6060 Czech Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 07/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 45 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 08/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 36 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 08/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 36 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 08/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 45 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 08/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 36 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 08/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 45 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 08/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 45 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 09/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 45 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 09/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr General Dynamics F-16AM Fighting Falcon E-600 Royal Danish Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 09/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Dassault Rafale M 36 Aeronavale RNAS Yeovilton 09/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Boeing C-17A Globemaster III 92-3292 US Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 09/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr General Dynamics F-16AM Fighting Falcon E-600 Royal Danish Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 09/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Northrop F-5E Tiger II J-3085 'La Patrouille Suisse' Swiss Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 10/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr General Dynamics F-16AM Fighting Falcon FA-132 Belgian Air Component RNAS Yeovilton 10/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 ZK352/BV Royal Air Force RNAS Yeovilton 10/07/17 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Hope you enjoy, a bumper selection from RIAT will be forthcoming in the near future...

  3. 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.

Another terrific show, where I spent more time watching than shooting for a pleasant change.

  4. 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.

Hope they were again enjoyable to view. Cheers, Shaun
