Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

RAF Coningsby - Ex Indradhanush IV [MIL]

Post by Macc »

Eight years ago I visited my first airbase outside of Scotland when the Indians brought their Su-30MKIs to RAF Waddington. It was great to visit again during this deployment, with the number of aircraft per sortie increasing per day but very changeable weather. Nevertheless, another excellent few days with great company and laughs. A big thanks to my Dad and Mark for lending me lenses after my 70-200 became less and less workable.
