Cosford Airshow 2018 (Photo heavy)
« on: June 12, 2018, 10:42:50 PM »
Had a very enjoyable weekend, flew out on Friday to London and spent the afternoon at Myrtle Avenue. Went back on Saturday morning before going to Buckingham Palace for the Trooping of the Colour and Queens birthday flypast (4 Tornado's in formation :D) before going up to Birmingham with a runway view from my hotel.

Sunday I went up to Cosford and had one of the best experiences of my life. The RAF Falcon's dropped in with the RAF Baton and had a hand over ceremony to hand the baton over to an RAF Commander, he then walked over and started talking to me before asking if I would like to hold the Baton! Of course I said yes! And I got photographed by the RAF Photographer as I held the baton.

The show itself was brilliant, an amazing day of flying. BBMF was amazing, as was F16 and Mig 29. I really enjoyed the early displays taking in WWI and pre-WWII era aircraft. New Zealand 757 was a great display. Not one thing I didn't enjoy. Photography wise lighting was a major issue for me, first outing with the new camera,  so still a lot to learn as it was just so bright all day with Sun directly in front of me.


I was front row at crowd centre in the Cosford Club enclosure so probably had one of the best seats in the house :D
