Re: Super Hornet Down In Star Wars Canyon?

This is more or less academic in the current COVID crisis but here is an update from the Scramble Facebook page: "Following our Scramble Facebook News (SFN) report of 11 March 2020*, we now can present a picture of one of the first transitions of Super Hornets through the low-fly area of Death Valle...

Re: Super Hornet Down In Star Wars Canyon?

I am with you on that, it is akin to some of the stories, legend or otherwise, about some of British low level spotter community and the lengths taken to limit exposure or even participation. All very hush hush and protective until such time as one gets 'that' shot. More info will leak as tourists n...

Re: Super Hornet Down In Star Wars Canyon?

The below is what twigged my interest today... They would are not the official word, but they would certainly know the reality on the ground. Looks like I was premature in booking my Easter vacation in Florida.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2020

Today's series of RIAT announcements were a welcome bright spot in an otherwise grim (but understandable) day for airshows. Looking forward to having another crack at photographing both of those demos. The Belgian demo with its great scheme gives some interesting opportunities whilst the USAF 16 has...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2020

The updates are off to a nice start, a fine selection oF fast movers. I'd love for the Swiss to bring one of their grey F-5s as well this year - as they did the last time they appeared (I am assuming due to a MX issue.). It was a nice contrast. Also liking the new detailed updates format. Though I e...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2020

I'm slowly starting to plan my dream trip, going to RIAT in 2021. I would like to know your experiences to organize this kind of trip. I took a lot of information from the RIAT official website, but I would like to know if you know websites or blogs of people who tell their stories about RIAT and h...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2020

On the fence about this year. Have done 6 of the last 7 years, and each year I have been rewarded by an awesome spectacle even in the one or two 'off' years I have attended. See my posts in previous year's thread at the sheer jaw dropping scope of a RIAT line up compared to North American shows. The...

Re: Airshow London 2019

Folks, The 4th running of the reconstituted London Airshow is in the can... I've been lucky enough to make it to all four, so I thought I would cobble together a few of my thoughts on the event. First of all kudos and thanks to the organizers, staff and volunteers. Without you there would be no show...
