Possible Rejection - 'Bad Wolf'?

Fri Apr 20, 2007 9:30 pm

Being slightly tongue-in-cheek here however I think A.Net might want to consider a new rejection category - 'Bad Wolf' or perhaps 'Bad Fox'!  Wink

Just scanned this slide taken at the 1985 I.A.T. where a long line of static aircraft were parked in front of a fun fair:

Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 732 File size: 277kb

This was my first ever airshow photography outing and I completely failed to spot the inflatable wolfy or foxy to the right when I took this photo!

However, this does present a problem. I have checked the database and AFAICT there is currently no photo of Harrier GR.3 XZ996. She is now on the fire dump at Manston so unlikely she will be photographed there. My photo is 22 years old and would be a new a/c for the db so technically is a rare shot.

Am I pushing my luck with this one?


NB: I think it needs levelling as well!

The two look alike..!

I think quality, darkness, people clutter and cutting of the right wingtip are all bigger issues than the inflatable character, but since the shot is over 20 years old and of a 'new' aircraft, maybe it has a chance, I don't know.
