On Sunday the 10th of June, RAF Northolt organized a
Photocall. A minimum of 15 Pound Sterling had to be paid in
advance and all was donated to charity. Enthusiasts who
wanted to visit this event, had to print out a special application
form and this had to be sent off with a cheque to the RAF. Entry
was possible between noon and 16.00 hours on a prebooked
time spot. Parking on the base it self was available
and two old British Transport buses were ferrying up and
down to the line-up.
In total, twelve foreign visitors were on the tarmac from six different
countries. The RAF showed off their jets in special colour
schemes and four aircraft were adopting these unusual colours.
Apart from the static photo shoot, enthusiasts who were lucky to
get an entry slot before 12.30, were treated with a little operational
show. Tornado ZE735 was ordered to come home and took off
just before 12.30. Soon after, Belgian Seaking RS05 started up
its engines and after a spectacular take-off it kept on circling
above the airfield for clearance to leave the airspace.
Overall, the RAF at Northolt did a fantastic job again. The
contribution towards charity has been a great success and was
much appreciated by all enthusiasts visiting that day. The RAF
Northolt even provided parking space, bus services and steps
to take those beautiful shots from a different angle. Hereby I
would like to thank all of the people who were involving organizing
and making this event very successful.
