Ah next time you are in the area perhaps we should meet up, I live
t'other side of Brighton and have done most my flying from Shoreham. |
I'm sure I can hold on to the lenses till new year!

and we get down there once or twice a year, I try to engineer the
Autumn trip to coincide with the Show. We usually stay at the 'Sussex
Pad' which is a few hundred metres from the threshold of Rwy20 at
EGKA. It is usually a great show. If you are selling Nikon lenses
suitable for the D70 in the future I may well be interested but make it
well after Xmas please! Contact me off-list so that we don't
bore the others with off-topic chat <G>
Very nice shot there! not to "diss" your effort but with that subject
material it is hard to take a bad shot, but yours certainly shows off
those curves well! When was it taken? was it this years show?
I also have a D70 and love it, however it seems to have been relegated
these days to the dusty drawer as the "mid" range camera. In Hong Kong
last year I bought a Leica Digilux II which is a stunning bit of
equipment (what you would expect from Leica really. if only the lenses
weren't so expensive, and on this years trip I bought a Canon Elexilim
(SP!?) compact which is absolutely tiny but takes some stunning shots,
for close up and good light work it is easily as good as my D70,
although it was only half the cost.
Perhaps we should start up a FlightSimmers Nikkon club ;)
Might have some lenses for sale soon if anyone is interested as the D70
gets phased out of my service.

years and with which I have been well pleased. Here's one of my
favourite shots of recent times...
