Photo Shoot: Avro Shackleton night shoot

An evening with Avro Shackleton AEW2, WR963, operated by the Shackleton Preservation Trust at Coventry Airport.  Also in attendance were a number of re-enactors to help create the illusion of stepping back in time.  This was previously home to the Classic Air Force / Airbase, and a number of their aircraft still remain on site albeit in a deteriorating condition.

Whilst holidaying in East Anglia, I decided to detour to this small museum in Norfolk.  Located on the former RAF Bungay airfield although only a few Nissan huts give any sort of indication that there was previously an airfield here.  Most off the aircraft are positioned in the grounds of the museum, with a further collection in a very tightly packed hangar, making photography very difficult.

Airshow: Yeovilton Air Day 2016

My first visit to Yeovilton for an airshow.  Whilst initially surprised by a relatively small crowd line which made getting a decent vantage point challenging, I found the show to be very entertaining in contrast to some comments by others on social media.

Aircraft photographed:

  • AgustaWestland AW-159 Wildcat
  • Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress
