Thursday 21 March 2019 sees the fourth Navy Wings Night Photoshoot but with a difference. For the first time, in association with Threshold Aero we have teamed up with one of the UK’s premiere living history re-enactment groups to introduce aircrew and ground-crew fully kitted out in appropriate clothes and accessories to match each individual Naval aircraft and its era.
As with previous nightshoots, once the sun goes down, battery-powered portable LED lamps to light all the participating aircraft on the apron. The re-enactors will pose in front of and around one or two of the aircraft at a time, this will enable you to capture images with or without the crews.
The re-enactment team have been in the industry for nearly twenty years and are comprised of serving military, ex. service personnel and civilians. In this time they have appeared in many TV productions and documentaries and appeared at events all over the country, helping to educate the young about military history. They also act as historical advisors to the TV, film and theatrical Industry providing important historical information and research.
