Aerial Photography?

Anyone who fancies getting together to cost-share to do some aerial photography in Southern half of England? One flight flying, one photographing??

1. New Zealand
2. Pitts, Tiger Moth, Yak 52, Chipmunk.
3. P-38 Lightning, Spitfire or Fw190 would be beyond my wildest dreams

I would also dearly love to have a go in the Pitts Model 12, Pitts S1-11B, Jungmeister, Stampe, Zlin 526 and Stearman - bit of an akro guru here!

Will have a chance to drool over a '38 (Glacier Girl) at Oshkosh this year - albeit on the ground! First time in the States, and am flying a Tiger Moth into the show which will be a buzz and a half.

Rjtjrt, have you flown the stampe yet? What is it like? I have heard, a massive heap of fun!

Would really like to experience flying in a kitfox, can anyone help? I'm based on a farm strip in somerset but could meet elsewhere. I can offer the back seat of a streak shadow, as long as you can fit in!

3. Almost anything interesting

I am also at Prestwick and Biggin Hill about twice a month each and could work something in either of those locations.

1) Hertfordshire, UK
2) My girlfriends 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 5L V8 (she won't mind, although it probably burns more petrol than your plane)
3) You got wings, I'm in (and I don't mean the kind you get from KFC)

If you're not into cars I can teach you to play drums? Or failing that I've got some great recipes for Paella and Curry?

If you don't like cars, food or music then I'm running out of options. A hug?

Failing that I could just buy you lunch and a pint and entertain you with my scintillating company...?

........all of this would be much easier if I had boobs.....perhaps I could wear a pair of fake comedy breasts (á la Blackadder) ?

Let me know guys...let me know.

Can now offer a 182 with interesting in flight electrical failures?

Swap for anything that works properly for an hour.

1. EGBO (Halfpenny Green..bordering Wolverhampton)

2. C152/DA40/PA28/G115/ Mars prototype UFO?

3. Interested in getting acquainted with a C172 /Cirrus/Anything I haven't had the pleasure of opposing gravity in.

FYI I'm an orthodox corporate desk jockey, so I tend to do my flying on the weekends (WX permitting etC) majority of the time due to work ofcourse!

Good morning,

A couple of years late but if you are still after hands on with the Kitfox, let me know. I am in Poole but venture that way occasionally, this would be another excellent to venture that way again.

Best regards.

This thread was a great idea, but did anyone actually get to fly something else as a result?
