Good morning Ken! Yes, that is too bad. We have received a lot of inquiries from Fence Checkers at ISAP. Fence Check kind of originated the Photo Call concept and now there members are kind of out there in the wind, hope we can help them in some small way.

Good example of how a few jerks can destroy something good.


About the time the closure was announced, there was a separate thread started asking about the (then) upcoming El Centro photo call, and other sites (and organizations), where people could participate in future photo calls. I provided links to ISAP, and AZAP, which I knew of because of Jeff's posts here (and on Fence Check). Someone else posted a link to the APSOCAL group, which I didn't know about. I imagine that all 3 received inquiries from soon to be "homeless" Fence Checkers.

I did not make a blanket invitation for Fence Checkers to come here. I was worried that a mass influx of new participants (all in a short time frame) might actually harm MA2A. I did privately invite Liza to visit us sometime in the future, perhaps she will join us one day.

Even though I knew the closure was coming, I still keep clicking the link in my favorites, hoping the site will reappear.

A little early in the year for many shooting opportunities, so, one from the archives.

Today four of the last Royal Navy Westland Lynx Mark 8 helicopters flew around the south of England before they are phased out and replaced by the Wildcat. Here they are taking off after a refuelling stop at RAF Odiham (about 15 miles from my home) before heading for London and then returning to RNAS Yeovilton.





Lynx farewell

Currently 17 B-25s are scheduled to fly in.

"The memorial service is scheduled to conclude with a flight of two B-1 bombers from the 34th and 37th Bomb Squadrons at Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, which were two of the four Army Air Corps Squadrons from which the B-25 aircrews were selected for the Doolittle Raid. "

Oh my. Now you've gone and done it. I'm coming down for this. I'll drive down the morning after Easter, shoot the statics, then join you on whatever hill you were talking about for the fly-bys on the second day.

Erich, the hill I am talking about overlooks the base but you can't see the museum. That's why I was asking those who had flown on the B-25s the last time if they'd gone over base or not. Probably as close as I'll ever get to catching them "air to air" I am so glad I took PTO those two days!!

I wonder if we can find out beforehand what the briefed rally point and flyby routes will be for the formation and the B-1s. Jim, any idea who we can ask?

My WAG is that they'll continue over base, both B1s and B25s, but let me see if I can tap a local resource.

My local resource says yes they flew directly over the flightline on main base (Area B)

Problem with this base is three separate areas, two that have flightlines. Until recently, Area C was divided by Route 444 till the Air Force said they wanted that section of road back from Fairborn.

Maybe Gunny knows if the current details are any different than last time?

Hello good folks of MAtA, it's been a while. Hope you're all doing ok.
I've not shot aviation in a while but managed to get myself on a night shoot at RAF Northolt this week, looking forward to it as I've never done a night session before

My daughter came home from preschool with the class mascot on Friday, so we had to find some fun things to do to write up in the diary.

We went to the RAF museum where we saw a good selection of aircraft, and decided to pay a few bucks to sit in the cockpit of a mkXVI spitfire, her face was a picture as she worked the control stick and throttle luckily after she jumped out we still had a few minutes of our slot remaining so I jumped in

I was just reminded of this image in another context and thought I'd share it here. Avro Anson Mk1 over Lake Wanaka, NZ, last March. This aircraft remains my favorite air-to-air subject, not least because of the depth and accuracy of its restoration. It's the only flying Anson Mk1 in the world, and owner Bill Reid is has a very interesting life story, too.

Thanks to Zane I went to KTPL to welcome the Collins Foundation Living History arrival. I have never seen the
B-24, so I stayed out on the taxi way for an hour and a half waiting on it...it was worth it and yes, I wanted the shot. They didn't make a pass so it was just an approach and landing. Glad I made it. Once again, thank you Zane! You made this old man a happy boy!
