AeroExpo at Booker

Post by Sneezy24 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 4:44 pm

Is the AeroExpo any good??

Thinking of spending a day there, one aim is to practice panning prior to RIAT in July.

Can I get close enough to the runway? (70-300 lens on an 80D)

Thanks,

Mick

I haven't been to the event at Booker.

Is it the same format as Sywell used to be?

Can visitors be read off easily - not interested in photos.

Thanks

Yes, it is similar to the Expo events held in recent years at Sywell.
Reg taking similar to Sywell. You can read them landing/taking off. Once parked, similar to Sywell, walking up and down will get about 2/3 of them, becoming easier mid afternoon as they depart.
Photos - if landing E to W across the M40 then pictures at East end of fencing ok with your lens. If taking off that way - not so sure.

I'm sure you will both enjoy the day if weather fine.
Good luck
Pete.

At previous Expo's both Sywell and Booker - there has been no access Airside for the general public.
