About this event

Join us at Bicester Heritage Centre (just north M40) with aircraft supplied by Finest Hour Experiences for an exclusive shoot with re-enactors and a yellow Tiger Moth G-AOIS and G-BJAP painted as K2587 in red and silver check which is a replica of one of the 1932 CFS Aerobatic team display aircraft.

Our event will see us positioning the aircraft away from all buildings and modern day clutter, thus allowing clean backdrops for the daytime and sunset session and we will also re-position them in front of the period hangers for the night part of the shoot. We also hope to have use of some vintage vehicles, courtesy of Finest Hour Experiences.

During this session we will be joined by period military re-enactors all who will be convincingly dressed for the period to add a human interest at times for wonderful vintage portraiture and scenes and we also hope to have some vintage vehicles from the era to add extra interest.

Just before sunset G-BJAP will take off with her pilot and fly back home so there will also be a chance to capture this and then we will have G-AOIS for sunset and after dark. We are very grateful to Finest Hour Experiences for providing such excellent aircraft and hosting this shoot for us.
