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.

Another UK trip (incl. SPTA and Northolt Nightshoot!) HEAVY

Post by Sven van Roij »

Last week I spent five days in the United Kingdom. I could participate in the 10th Northolt Nightshoot and decided to spend a few more days in de UK to do some more spotting.

Sundaynight I drove by car towards London, and first 'field' of the list was the London Heliport.

On Tuesday I decided to go to the SPTA. I had already spend two days on the Salisbury Plain Training Aera (near Boscombe Down/Middle Wallop/Stonehenge) in March this year and that pleased me very well :wink: :D

Wednesday I had planned Middle Wallop, a real spotterfriendly field and some nice activity!

Thursday was a real highlight for me. Finally I was able to make it to one of the Northolt Nightshoots (10th time that Phill could arrange it). And...just...WOW!!

Nope, those have been in the UK all the time. The Belize ones are ZJ964, ZJ966 and ZJ969.

Indeed great shots, especially the Tracker!
