Low-Level Flying Photography
Photographic Logs for 2019
(For all these shots I used a Canon EOS 5D Mk III and EOS 5D Mk IV with the following lenses;
Canon EF 400mm f2.8 L IS Mk II, Canon EF 300mm f2.8 L with and without a x1.4 extender Mk III and a Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS).

Monday November 18, 2019 Blue skies and autumn colours, what could be better? A mid-morning pair of Osprey and a very late Typhoon (15:15) was a good consolation for not catching the Swiss Hornets that were hoped for.

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18D Hornet (J-5238) using callsign 'Crusader 21'.
From RAF Leeming Exercise Yorknite started a few days ago with Swiss Air Force F/A-18C/Ds Hornets jointly operating with Fliegergeschwader (FlGeschw or Air Wing) 11, Fliegerstaffel (FlSt or Air Squadron) 17 and FlGeschw 14, FlSt 18. Both units are based at Payerne. As in previous years, when they were based at RAF Lossiemouth, the Swiss pilots are refreshing their nightflying skills.
I was in the Lakes hoping to catch them flying low. The previous day and ealier today two pairs of Hornets had pulled out of low level or turned away a few miles short of the area probably due to banks of low cloud covering the hill tops. The pair which made it through arrived 30 minutes before sunset when the cloud had lifted a little. They are only cleared down to 500 feet AGL inline with all foreign visitors flying low in the UKLFS.

Wednesday November 13, 2019 A dull day with low cloud, so low that the flight of Swiss F/A-18s pulled out of low level a couple of miles short of my hillside, just as a Typhoon passed underneath them at 250 feet AGL.

Wednesday October 30, 2019 A bright day on 'Snakepit' keeping out of the cold easterly wind. This was my first visit in over a year to the 'Loop', I guess a pass of a three ship of Hawk T.2s and two passes from a four ship of F-15Es sums up what a good day is these days.
