Re: A few from Inverness

Thanks for looking and commenting.
There was so much heat-haze from the tarmac, most of the photos had some distortion or a mirage.

Cheers, Phillip

Tornado @ Perth

Hauling the 'Aberdonian', from Edinburgh to Aberdeen, on 14 March 2019. Built in 2008, it is considered the 50th Peppercorn A1, numbered next in the class after 60162, 'Saint Johnstoun', built in 1949. Fittingly photographed in 'Saint Johnstoun', the ancient name for Perth. https://farm8.staticflick...

Mostly military, but included this rather pleasing Gipsy Moth, which scanned reasonably well; https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7831/33389864478_b8178c4136_b.jpg DH.60 Gipsy Moth, G-ATBL @ Strathallan, ...

Lunch Stop @ Inverness

I thought it was going to be a total wipe-out, but the dense fog lifted within 10 minutes of arrival, to reveal overcast high cloud. The combination of low light, chain link fencing and a bridge camera - not ideal ! https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1911/45588857992_0a53c65b4e_b.jpg BAe ATP-F, SE-LPS, ...

Re: SPOTM August 2018 De Havilland

My entry goes back a few years, to the once world renowned Strathallan Collection. DH82A Tiger Moth G-ANFV (DF155) flown by Bernie Sedgwick, then a BCal BAC-111 captain. The photo was taken on a Kodak Pocket Instamatic (small 110 film), in August 1980 and scanned from a 5" x 3.5" pre-digital print. ...
