      Pretty cool - where do you get photo ops like this?

      RAF Northolt night-shoot - details of the nexxt one here forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=38804. Planned for March 2012.

      It is organised by volunteers (led by Phil) and costs a donation of at least £25 to attend. The monies go to fund the restoration of RAF Northolt's WWII Sector Operations Room.

      They are good events: Organised by photographers for photographers. It is pot luck if anything turns up (lots of invitations go out . . . but in the current financial climate who knows what'll turn up). If the flight line is a bit sparse then the locals come out to play - like the RAF Regiment jackel here or the Fire Serivce www.flickr.com/photos/billkatygemma/5376238887/ sometimes even the Met 'drop in' www.flickr.com/photos/billkatygemma/3887273841/ As you can see the crews allow good rotor / prop shots - www.flickr.com/photos/billkatygemma/5768140721/

      Sadly the day/night shoots seem to be no more as they were based around the defunct Families Day aircraft.

      Still a great event, fun (if sometiems very cold!) and challenging.

      Bring gloves, hat, reflective jacket, tripod, camera and patience (30 sec shots) - oh and money for 32 Sqn RAF 'stuff' and hopefully bacon butties!

      Northolt is close to the A40 and the Central Line.

      See you there in March!!

      P.S. it is not just me that raves about it. . .

      "For those who have not been to Northolt Nightshoot I can only recommend. I also think the recommendation of people willing to travel from the midlands and from further north and to visit the event on more than one occasion speaks volumes for the uniqueness of the event.

      I know people can be disappointed if aircraft don't turn up, but all air events suffer from this problem. If you are willing to give it a try I am sure you will enjoy it. I know first hand how hard Phil works to gain and keep support from the RAF Northolt team and how hard he works in getting aircraft to these events.

      It should not be forgotten that the monies raised help to restore and maintain an important part of UK and RAF history, a WWII Ops building." Harlequin67, UKAR mod
