The Red Arrows

  1. I've been up the last two Fridays but they appear to fly weekdays. See link above for the times and how many aircraft are up but they are only updated on the morning. I think they fly out to Cyprus in March so should be good for the next couple of months, weather permitting.

    Here's a link to a site that points out the viewing areas around the base. I go a gate near to site K at the end of the runway. There is a car park at the junction of A1500 a hundred yards from this gate.

    Panasonic G5 with Olympus 40-150mm with 1.4x converter or with a Panasonic 100-300mm. (35mm equivalent 80-300 (420mm max with 1.4x) using Olympus / 200-600 using the Pany)

    They're nice and sharp especially as you've used a converter, do those lenses have IS?

    p.s. I.S. is NOT a reference to Islamic State.
     
  8. it was nice of them to show their affection for you too :eek:
     
  9. The Olympus doesn't so have to rely on technique and high shutter speed. The Pany does but is not as sharp.
    (Would have done smiley about IS but computer says no.)
