Hurricane Heritage ATA Photography Day
We are pleased to be teaming up with Darren Harbar to offer a very special photography day on Friday 24th May 2024. White Waltham has an incredible history as the home of the Air Transport Auxiliary during WWII. Our aim is to re-create the look of the airfield during those bygone days with our Hurricanes R4118 and BE505, plus Harvard FE511 alongside period vehicles and ATA re-enactors.
Who is it for?
Anyone who wants a close up and personal day with Hurricane Heritage aircraft at a historic airfield with unique photographic opportunities.
Bring you and your camera – it’s as simple as that!
What is included?
Arrival refreshments and lunch.
Opportunity to sit in the rear cockpit of Hurricane BE505.
Chat with Hurricane pilots and crew.
The day will start at 11:00 with tea/coffee refreshments while you enjoy a short presentation by Darren with some hints and tips about getting some interesting images on the day. For the morning session, the aircraft will be positioned for clean, timeless images on the historic airfield. Lunch will be provided for you and include a talk about the history of the ATA at White Waltham. In the afternoon you will head back onto the airfield where the aircraft will be graced by our ATA re-enactors and ground crew who will be able to chat to you and pose for photographs. Darren will be on hand to offer support and advice, as well as using his experience to set up different poses and scenarios for you to photograph.
This photography day is designed for those who are already competent with a camera, but it can equally be fun for entry level users and compact camera owners too. There are no photographic challenges during the day, just lots of specially set up opportunities to capture images you just won’t get anywhere else. Access around the airframes will be managed to allow all attendees to get a wide range of images and the event is limited to 30 people to ensure it remains a personal experience for all. During the afternoon until the event ends at 17:00, for those able and within weigh limitations you will have an opportunity to sit in the rear cockpit of BE505!
