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.

A day out on the SPTA and visit to Boscombe Down.

Post by fisherman »

With a few days to spare recently, I decided to spend some time out on the SPTA and earlier in the year on a very nice day I sat at Boscombe, patience and a good book seems to work?

Nice photos my friend. Interesting with respect to the Tucano, I was led to believe they had retired.

Thank you all, yes they have retired as I posted that was a wee bit earlier in the year, both the Hawk and Tucano, hence the deep blue sky. Everything else is bang up to date.

Number 2: nice capture of what is arguably the ugliest helicopter on earth!
