SPOTM April 2019 - Lockheed

Post by andygolfer » Tue Apr 09, 2019 7:37 am

This is the SPOTM (Special Photo Of The Month) competition for April 2019 and the subject is ‘Lockheed' - a nice star studded subject!

The subject of your entry should be a photo of one or more civil registered Lockheed aircraft including any preserved ex military with a civilian registration, aircraft carrying a military registration at the time of the photo are excluded.

Photography Competition Rules :-

1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry..

2. The photo may have been taken on any date, it does not have to be taken in the month of the competition

3. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not. HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

4. The competition will remain open until 23.59 (UK time) on the 7th May 2019 - please note new extended closing date to enable anyone with a last minute entry some breathing space.

5. Voting will be conducted by a poll open to all the membership shortly after the closure of the competition.

6. 'Rule 6...' There's no rule 6 Bruce'

7. The decision of the moderating team is final.

8. All images must be posted in line with the usual CA posting rules (size etc.), please read them if you're not sure how to post.

9. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.

10. Please also embed the images and not links to images, if you're not sure how to do it then shout up and someone will sort it out. It is permissible to change your entry before the closing date.

11. Do not comment on other member's photos.

12. A brief description of where and when the image was taken would be nice too.

If you have any questions please PM me

Good luck everyone.

I'll kick this month off. At first I thought Tristars or L100 then remembered this. Breitling Super Connie at Farnborough 20 July 2014.

Lots of Constellations so far, but for me it's the most graceful plane ever made. So here's another. HB-RSC at the Sanicole Airshow in 2013.
