    Son going to Uni

    My youngest has just finished his 2nd year at Reading, doing a business and management degree. He's trying to get a placement at the moment, but if not he will go and do his final year. It is so hard for the kids these days to know what to do, if University is worth the expense or to go to...

    Son going to Uni

    Right time for an update, 4 years later and my son now has 2-1 in automotive engineering from Sheffield Hallam. Very proud of him. It's been hard work but hopefully worth it. Now just the small matter of putting it to use and getting a job!

    Shuttleworth Military Pageant

    Thank you all very much for you kind comments. I can't recommend the Shuttleworth Collection highly enough. It really is a wonderful place to visit with some unique aircraft. If the weather is good, in my opinion there isn't a better venue for an Airshow, plus I only live 40 minutes away !

    Shuttleworth Military Pageant

    I managed to have a day out at the Shuttleworth collection last Sunday for their Military Pageant airshow, and what an airshow it was. The weather played ball and the highlight was 7 Hurricanes flying together. Apparently the last time this many flew together was 1948! Anyway are just a few of...

    Daks over Duxford

    Thanks for the comments. I usually try to use 250th down to around 125th , but it's trial an error. The light on this day was quite poor, especially later on in the day. I had quite a number that hit the recycle bin, most of these are around 160th to 200th. It comes down to practice and how...

    Daks over Duxford

    Many thanks Frank , you are very kind. The lack of camera use is more to do with family commitments and finding the time to get out and about.

    What and when was your first serious camera?

    Mine was a Zenith EM in the late 70's followed by a couple of wonderful Pentax MX. They were a fantastic camera a I learned a lot with them. Now a Canon user with a eos 70d. How things have changed!

    Lest we forget (Open thread)

    I managed to get to the Slimbridge Wire Soldiers tribute today. I found it very moving and a wonderful tribute to the fallen over the years. There was a large crowd for such a small village tribute, the artist was at the church and gave some information on how the idea was conceived. Hopefully...

    Thanks Richard. I was pleased with #4 just lucky to get a gap in the crowd at the right time. I might get the second version of the Aston blown up and stick it on the wall.
