Annual Photographic Competition

The traditional Annual Photographic Competition was held on Tuesday 10 November 2015 at the Group's meeting venue, The Rugby Hotel. The competition attracted 29 entries on a wide variety of aviation related topics. The quality standard increases every year and it was hard to choose a favourite image.

The winners this year were:
  1. Classic Air Force Meteor T8 by Theo Claassen with 13 votes,
  2. Grace Seafire LFIIIc by Theo Claassen with 10 votes,
  3. Czech Air Force Mil-24 Hind (Smiling Hind) by Ray Ball                                               and the Aircraft Restoration Company's Bristol Blenheim I by Theo Claassen with 8 votes each.

The evening was rounded off with a slide show of some old and some not so old black & white images of aircraft of varying kinds, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all present.

The David George Photographic Trophy  will be presented to the winner at the Annual Christmas Dinner, to be held on Wednesday 16 December 2015 at the Cherry Tree at Catthorpe, Leicestershire.
