Re: Helicopter Club of GB visits Middle Wallop

Nice shots. I see that red Hughes 500 flying over me in Bedfordshire all the time. I believe it's based at a local farm.

Comet and Cub at Old Warden, 25/08/19

Had to go for a drive on Sunday to get the baby to sleep, so what better destination. Wasn't particularly busy, but I got there just in time to see Dodge Bailey bringing the Comet back from displaying at Little Gransden and giving us a couple of nice flypasts before landing. Quite a lot of heat haze...

Hi Pete. It's a spotlight. Presumably so they can see what they're landing on when it's dark.

Re: July 2019 photo of the month competition

In case I don't get around to photographing/posting anything else this month, I'll kick things off with one that would've been suitable for last month's SPOTM, G-MGPS Leonardo AW169 in Bedford on 13th July.

G-MGPS Leonardo AW169 in Bedford, 13/07/2019

As I was loading up the car with concrete to take to the tip on Saturday, I saw a helicopter come over the house, bank round and start descending. Guessing that Bedford Park was the most suitable landing site in that direction I jumped in the car and headed there to find the Magpas air ambulance cha...

Not actually a newbie...

...just back from exile! Haven't been posting on here for year or so due to having my PC packed away while I moved house and also had a baby (well I didn't give birth personally, but you know what I mean), because moving on it's own isn't stressful enough! Don't get as much time for photographing ai...

Not sure I've got anything else African, so can I get away with this? Shuttleworth's DH51, G-EBIR "Miss Kenya", formerly VP-KAA - the first aircraft to fly in Kenya - displaying in 2010.

Thanks for the replies all. Andy, I believe the Dornier has been based at Old Warden for a few years now, but this is the first time I've seen it up close too. Spotted it from a distance in the skies of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire a few times last year. JAWS, that sounds like a painful end for y...
