An array of airframes for your entertainment, an evening with RAF 238 Sqn at RAF Cosford, 25th October 2017

We are honored and extremely pleased to bring you another opportunity at RAF Cosford, an afternoon and evening of exclusive photography with ex frontline Harriers, Jaguars and a Wessex Helicopter of the RAF. With special thanks to the RAF we are able to offer an opportunity to capture these wonderful aircraft that are still kept in tip top condition in and around their hangars at RAF Cosford.

For this event we are proud to say that all profits will be going to the Jon Egging Trust.

Our evening will see around 10 airframes participate; these will include three Harriers, all different, Artic Camo, Grey and VAAC (red, white & blue) XW175. These will be joined by two, possibly more of the black Jaguars, a number of other Jaguars including at least two GR1's in Camouflaged, the Dessert Storm Jag, Spotty and the Boscombe Down red, white and blue one. This will be the first time we have had the opportunity to include black Jaguars so this will add a new dimension to the shoot.  To finish the line up of this shoot we will be joined by a Wessex Helicopter in RAF Rescue yellow. Another very exciting line up, one we are sure you will not want to miss out on.

 

We intend to position the airframes in and round the hangar, on the pans and inside the DOTA. This will not only afford us a large amount of sape to work with but also many different set ups and cameos to keep us busy right up to the end of the evening.

 

Our session at RAF Cosford will start around 15.30 allowing us to be in place and ready for sunset. Then as the sun sets we will be turning on our lights and adding further dimensions to the shoot with the addition of personnel, ground equipment and one or two other surprises to keep you shooting into the evening. Like our last visit we will take up camp in a different area to the last two visits, this time we will be in the DOTA (Deployed Operational Training Area) at the far end of the site where the Harriers used to operate from in years gone by. As a major part of these aircraft's role is now supporting the RAF’s Defence School of Aeronautical Engineering we will include cameos inside one of the vast hangars at RAF Cosford adding further to this unique opportunity.

 

The event is planned to start at 15.30 and finish at 21.00, allowing plenty of different photo opportunities.  Your ticket price includes a meal kindly provided by o the on site catering team.
