Aircraft (very Image heavy)

Have not been to well again (nothing serious) so have not been out. There was an Airshow in town over the bay and in front of mountains so went down to seafront. I normally go up unto the mountain and shoot down on the aircraft, health would not let me this year so all at ground level. Got some reasonable shots and my faith back in E5!
Most shot with 50-200 or 50 - 200 and 1.4 converter hand held.-
Dull day poor skies but all went well for the show.

Shutter bit fast for prop planes.

Sorry so image heavy but making up for down time.

? sorry do not know this one.

]



Typhoon after burners on?





Seafire




Just playing about






Sabre




Think he spotted me! I tried to explain I was in a public place before hiding behind wall.





Dakota : spot the crew man giving the crowd a wave?





Hunter hit by paint bomb?




Reds coming over the mountain




Really going for it!




Vulcan

Wheels down slow pass.




Climbing away noisey!




Spotted again?




Bomb doors open giving me a warning!





Great day out did me the world of good. Roll on end of September for the news from Olympus.


One last shot was waiting for things to get going and this fellow hovered in front of me most of the day.





Feedback / comments welcome.

Great set well captured, if only we could book the weather. Girlfriend saw the Vulcan take off from Finningley Saturday but I was at East Kirkby with the Lancaster. Like the bird shot birds seem un concerned of aircraft.

Re: Aircraft (very Image heavy)

Good set Ed, I'm always surprised they didn't white out the bottom of the Vulcan as per the nuclear duty ones, supposedly to reflect the flash from a Blue Steel

Re: Aircraft (very Image heavy)

Sorry to hear you have not been well again, Ed, but I'm sure this event did you a power of good - even though you couldn't get to your favourite viewpoint. You have some cracking shots here. I particularly like the pin-point timing of the Red Arrows crossover and I can just imagine the awesome roar of the Vulcan as it climed away!

Re: Aircraft (very Image heavy)

Nice set Ed. I always like to see images of the Vulcan, especially in the air, and the shot of it climbing away is my favourite.
Hope you are on the mend.

Re: Aircraft (very Image heavy)

Nice pix. I think the first one is a Harvard and the Seafire a Sea Fury.

Re: Aircraft (very Image heavy)

Super set Ed.

My favourites are the two shots of the F86 Sabre. When I was much younger we had them based at a local USAF base. The head on shot is terrific.

The first aircraft is a North American Harvard advanced trainer. This is a version of the US Texan and was widely used by the RAF and FAA from WW II through the 50's.

The "Seafire" is actually a Hawker Sea Fury. This was the last piston engined fighter used by the FAA and one of the fastest piston engined fighters ever built. One shot down a Mig 15 jet during the Korean War.

Thanks for sharing this great set.

Regards.

Edit. David beat me to it.

Ah that must have been Woodbridge.

I remember seeing a pair of T33's from Wethersfield collide in mid air over Braintree and a visiting C130 landed at the disused Gosfield airfield having declined a radar assisted approach to Wethersfield because "he could see the runway". Afraid the USAF never seemed to have the same standards as the RAF.

Good to see you back, Ed, you have been having a rough year. Glad you haven't got rusty, excellent work throughout.
Absolutely love the last shot.

Re: Aircraft (very Image heavy)

Thanks all for the comments and good wishes, I am not to bad just an unknown infection which I cannot shake and my medical team are wary of giving meds as I am allergic to most antibiotics and am limited in my use of pain relief. Hot and cold sweats most days needing a change of wet clothes, and no energy which all goes back to my illnesss in April.

The day was great not only did I get out but I got a lot of keepers which I can play with, thanks for the correct names I went by the hand out and the first plane was not named! I can now tell them..

John re Vulcan and noise, you felt it more than you heard it bit like the typhoon which did at least one very low close pass and then opened the throtle and went straiht up into the clouds.
