The Aviation PhotoCrew is a small team
of enthusiastic photographers and 1 videographer with the same passion
for aviation. In the past 20 years we have had the opportunity to do a
lot of Air-to-Air photowork all around the world, which can be found in
the galleries on our website.
We are the only team in the world offering large scale aerial photomissions
to other photographers around the globe!! If you like to fly with us,
certainly check out the pages ‘Fly
with us!’ ‘newsletter’
and ‘2023 plans’.
The Royal International Air Tattoo, or RIAT by its popular name, is that one airshow in the world that does not need an introduction. You have read that sentence for sure already on the website, and I am happy to use it again!
This was the first event to take place after the 2 year covid hiatus, and of course expectations were as high as they could be. We always have an very intensive schedule of photoflying that sounds a bit like this: sleep well to be sharp in the morning! Fly, land, refuel, pee, repeat...for two and a half days.

the Sywell aerodrome in July?
Flying warbirds of course!
Our traditional warbird weekend in July was hosted again at the lovely
Sywell airfield, and we were good to go for two full days of flying.
Richard Paver built up two days with some of the absolute stars in
the warbird world.

A few of our Aviation PhotoCrew members had the
opportunity to visit NAS Point Mugu in April, part of Naval Base
Ventura County (also consisting of Port Hueneme and San Nicolas
Island), in California. The facility in Point Mugu, started as a
United States Navy anti-aircraft training center during World War
II and was developed in the late 1940s as the Navy's major missile

missiles were developed and tested during the 1950/1960 era, and
they still do today.
