The U.S. Air Force have this week deployed a Bomber Task Force, Airmen and support equipment from the 2nd Bomb Wing, Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana.
Yesterday involved a visit to RAF Fairford to capture "CLIP91" Stratofortress B-52 bomber coming into land to join an ongoing exercise.
Great opportunity in capturing both American and British Forces working alongside which involved rapid roping down the MH-60S Seahawk (Knighthawk).
The HSC (Helicopter Sea Combat) 22Sqn is a US Navy helicopter squadron based at NAS Chambers Field in Norfolk, Virginia. Also known as The "Sea Knights" the unit began operations 2006, and have multiple taskings including vertical replenishment, search and rescue, air-sea rescue and anti-surface warfare.
Great to see one of the new race suits being worn by Adam Extance (#2) for the Plymouth Gladiators Speedway in yesterday's practice session. Only 6 weeks to go until the season starts!
Great day spent at Gawton Gravity Hub for the Woodland Riders Racing
Here's a selection of images captured. Apologies now if you don't see yourself in the gallery.
Flying visit to Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre, To capture some of the latest aircraft which as now been delivered and living at the centre
Last night consisted of taking over 400 shots of the crystal clear night sky above Plymouth. Positioned towards the North star to create a central star trail and stitched all the photos together.
Next time I will attempt an object in the foreground. Strange looking to say the least right!! Let's hope tonight is just as good!
VERY challenging day yesterday despite the weather I was hoping for but then again you have to work with what you got. (Heavy cloud rolled in before sunset.)
Nevertheless another great opportunity to capture the new Merlin MK4 from Commando Helicopter Force Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton in the countryside.
Something completely different from my usual type of work but a good experience to capture some long exposure images at Plymouth Railway Station.
