May 2024 BBMF calendar photo

Official Club calendar 2024 – May photo

During 2024 we are presenting the image from the Club calendar in the newsletter for that month, with some details about the picture, including when and where the photo was taken. This month we feature the stunning night-time image which we used for May, showing BBMF Lancaster PA474 at Southend Airport, which was taken by Club member Matt Stride in August 2022, whilst the BBMF was operating from Southend for the Eastbourne Air Show that year.

The photo was taken on a Canon EOS R6 with the flash off, with an f/2.8 aperture and an exposure of 0.4 of a second. Night-time photos of the BBMF Lancaster are rare and the big bomber takes on a different and more menacing appearance at night, even with the bright lights of the airport behind it.

We are now running a new competition for Club members to submit their photos of the BBMF for the 2025 Club calendar, click here for further details.
