11th July (Saturday) - Yeovilton Air Day - Anyone going?

Just wondering.

Looks a reasonable selection of aircraft.

Just packing the K-5IIs, 150-450mm, 60-250mm, 18-125mm, 12-24mm and 1.4x teleconverter ready for Saturday ... setting off about 6am.

My son's definitely going on Saturday, Mike. I may lend him a camera and tele-zoom lens if he wants to take pictures, but often he just likes to enjoy the experience.
Best wishes,

I should be going along with my son and the weather doesn't look too bad.

I've given him my old K-x and 55-300mm. He's better at it than I was starting out, won't be long before he's better!

I like Yeovilton, sometimes I can find RIAT just too much/big (but I'll still go).
Born again photographer! Pentax K-30 & kit lenses. Just what do all these buttons do......?

Well I'm a bit stuffed to be honest.

Went to my local ticket seller and they have none left.

The website says that tickets might be available on the gate.
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Yes I know.

4 hour round journey if they don't have any though ....

Ah well ... my kit is packed so I may as well.
