XH558 - RAF Waddington Arrival

Postby Old Rigger » Thu Jun 30, 2011 6:34 pm

Well she is here got a few video clips and some pictures of the Blades practising before, I actually thought they were waiting for 558 to maybe fly with her as the last I heard she was arriving at 16:00. I have yet to sort out piccies.

Edited to add straight of the camera:

Hows that for you :D , don't you just love cross posting.

Last one first, I still have not got the hang of keeping what quality my video camera captures and what photobucket displays but I am going to find out how to go direct from my video camera to utube some when.

It made me smile that 558 attracted as much attention flying over Saxilby and Scampton as Team Viper who were displaying at the time.
