Re: Shuttleworth evening show 17-07-2021

thanks for the comments guys, the light got really good into the evening. To start with it was a bit harsh and a bit too bright - I was trying to keep the speed down to around 1/250-400th for prop blur and aperture F7.1 (around the sweet spot for the lens) but even at ISO 100 I couldn't get it down ...

Shuttleworth evening show 17-07-2021

This was my first evening show this year and cloudless skies meant lovely evening light as the show progressed finishing with the Edwardians doing their piece as dusk descended. An excellent show once again with the drive-in format still in use. One or two not following the rules but generally well ...

As the Olympics are about to start here's an (almost) appropriate one from me, this was taken at Stansted on August 2nd 2012 this IL.62 was one of 3 that brought Russian dignitaries (how times change) and athletes to the London Olympics, it and another departed on an exceptional evening at Stansted ...

Old Warden evening show 17-07-2021 Beagle Pup G-AVDF

I was at the evening show yesterday and there was a gathering of LAA aircraft at the event with full walk round access during the afternoon, a highlight for me was the Beagle Pup prototype beautifully restored - what a job they have done with it. I'm not sure if anyone else on here is a fan (if they...

Re: Shuttleworth Military Airshow, 04/07/21

very nice Mark, looks like a good show. The two Gazelles are particularly nice. I thought about going and by the time I'd made my mind up it was sold out - there's a lesson! I'm going to the evening show tomorrow so hoping for weather like today's but without the wind so the Edwardians can fly. than...

Your pond has doors? Why not open the doors and let the fish out, drain the pond then remove Lily's (if she doesn't object) then refill open the doors and the fish can enjoy their new surroundings.
