Re: The Last Chance

I managed to get a place to park in a factory gateway on the road just below the Observatory pub and the uneatable food takeaway outlet.
Within in ten minutes there were cars on the yellow lines and footpaths every where because it was a good place to look down into the town and the brewery.
A police patrol car slowed down and thought better of moving us on and then the Lancs arrived.

I was hoping the bomb doors would open over the last photo.
Over and done with far too soon.

My camera was upstairs...by the time I had gone and got it the big birds were gone leaving only their drone.

Re: The Last Chance

I eventually settled near the Britannia Inn on the Haslingden Rd. which was on the direct route,but oh no they flew further north then turned over Accy to go up the valley towards Haslingden,so they were too far away for good shots,and I could just hear the engine noise.Got home to Clayton,my next door neighbour said that they flew almost overhead---should have stood on my garage roof.C'est la vie!

Re: The Last Chance

Superb, gpic, well focused and the sound- terrific.
What sort of video camera did you use to get that sound?
It's not easy filming planes, I always ended filming blank sky and never got sound like that.

I'm impressed.
No wonder people don't buy camcorders any more!

Re: The Last Chance

Have you removed the video gpick?
It's not showing on my iPhone 5s or ipad.
If it's still on the forum I will try on my PC.

Re: The Last Chance

It's working for me now, strange, first just the sound then the end last few seconds.
Second time I got it all, nice one gpick. Especially with a phone.

I zoomed in as close as I could to get them both in the same shot, I could have got a lot closer with only one in frame but the event called for them both.
They were gone too quickly to try them individually.
My sister rang me at 14.53 as they were passing over Morecambe and they appeared over Blackburn ten minutes later.
We had made arrangements earlier that she would ring as they passed so I could leave the comfort of my car in time to take the photos.
Well worth seeing together, a unique experience.
Just a side remark, the last time I flew in a plane was 1960. It was a Beverley with no back doors, they took them off because we couldn't open them in flight and we wanted to chuck things out. I have a few photos taken at Blackbushe with and without the cargo doors.
Toilet was an Elson pan behind a ground sheet, or stand at back and spray the crops.
Sorry, I strayed away from the thread.

Re: The Last Chance

I was watching cricket at Church CC and they came over head. I rang my daughter to tell her they were on their way and she saw them from her friends garden in Padiham. I managed to get couple of photos .

Same here Les, parked by the entrance of the wind farm - saw them, heard them but would have had trouble identifying them at that distance
