PhotoBlog : Leuchars Air Show 2009
I‘ve waited many years to finally get to an airshow. As a younglet, I would always watch the coverage of Farnborough with Raymond Baxter and fuel my forever love of planes.
I wasn’t disappointed. A blindingly (literally, when fully zoomed in, don’t pan across the sun) sunny day in Fife and many great planes (and even more people and cars). Here’s a short selection of some of the photos that what I took. Not the best, but I learnt quite a bit, I’ll be better next time.

The Avro Vulcan was ace. The highlight of the show came for me on take off. It lifted up fairly gently. I was zoomed right in and followed in up when it did an unexpected roll. It was very cool. Especially with a soundtrack of Barber’s Adagio on the PA.
