    Wednesday 19th September

    Being a gusty, blustery day I wasn't expecting any flying at Duxford BUT the Catalina flew off to Cambridge airport for a couple of hours crew training and a pipeline survey Cabri G2 helicopter flew in for a pit stop. Outside 5 hangar a team of contractors was putting...

    Saturday 15th September

    As it's Battle of Britain Day, September 15th, I was hoping for a bit of Spitfire flying at Duxford. I wasn't disappointed as there were 6 flying. Mk.1/N3200, 3x T.9's/PV202/SM520/TD462, Mk.XVIe/TD248 and Mk.XVIII/SM845.

    The museum held their second 'Lets have some display flying and not tell any one about it on social media until late the afternoon before' afternoon. This time it was the ARCo based Harvard/Taz and Stearman and TFC's Bearcat and Corsair. With wall to wall cloud,...

    So the forum has changed. If you were paying a subscription to it then I can understand the spitting out dummies and throwing toys out of the pram bit but you're getting access to it for free and Key can just as easily pull it what with all the problems it's had recently.

    Hold down the control key and rotate the mouse wheel and you decrease/increase the screen size.

    Background looks very light grey on both my computers. No pink tinge at all.

    Saturday 25th August Apart from Classic Wings, it's been a bit quiet flying wise on a Saturday since Legends but it appears to be picking up a bit now. P-51/Miss Helen flew away for the day and the Great War Display Team's BE2c and SE5a dropped in on their way back to Sywell. The ARCo Lysander/V9312 was out for a couple of high speed taxi runs, but no flying, and the Blenheim flew off to North Wales and back to take part in the Rhyl Air Show. All three of the Duxford based Harva...

    EVF, Electronic View Finder before any one asks, all the time. I have the grid and electronic level turned on and as long as you keep the horizon across the center line of the viewfinder frame then the verticals are vertical. Move the horizon above or below the centre line of the frame and the verticals start to...

    An Ultra-Wide Angle View Of London

    ..with a Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D Ultra-Wide Angle Lens. Nothing spectacular, just the usual London tourist shots as I get used to what this very, very wide angle lens is capable of. The Zero-D refers to zero distortion which reduces barrel distortion, in lens and not through software, to almost zero and the converging lines are straight and not curved as you would get with barrel distortion. A Wide Angle lens, 113 degree angle of view in this case, is one where the focal length of the lens is shorter than the short side of the sensor (lens @ 9mm + 1.5 crop = 13.5mm, short side of the 24mp sensor = 16mm). Manual focus with this lens is not really a problem. One of the few reviews Iv...
