Back in July, the Aviation PhotoCrew left Belgium
for a trip to Farnborough to catch the Vulcan for the second time. The once
in a lifetime experience from 2011 apparently wasn’t a once in a lifetime
at all. The security at Farnborough did its job very good so it took about
two and a half hour to get inside the airfield. Thanks to the Vulcan crew
we got in just in time to put all our gear in the Skyvan and prepare it
for the flight.
Taxiing away from the Breitling Super Constellation
which was parked next to us, we took off for the shoot. As always the English
countryside looked amazing and it showed once again how well the camouflage
paint works on the Vulcan. Soaring through the clouds made for the most
impressive sight on the Vulcan so far. Flying next to the Skyvan for a while
gave us the opportunity to make some side-on pictures, showing again the
divers angles the Skyvan photoship offers.
As always our gratitude goes out to the Skyvan
crew. Also the Vulcan crew and the people from the Farnborough International
Airshow need to be thanked for making this flight possible. More info on
the Vulcan can be found on their website www.vulcantothesky.org.
