Wonder of Flight Photographic Competition 2016

Congratulations to all the Winners and Runners-Up in fly2help’s Photographic Competition, who submitted a stunning range of images that captured their own love of flying.

In the Under 14 years category, first prize was awarded to Jack Edgar, who won a Wonder of Flight Day, arranged just for him to go behind the  scenes at an airfield, meeting the people who help pilots get airborne safely and enjoying his own flight in a light aircraft.  Alisa Jones won second and third prizes, which were a stylish Boeing Peashooter t-shirt from the Biggin Hill-based designers BlackStar and a year’s magazine subscription.  Photographs by Alisa Jones and Zoe White were also Highly Commended in this category.

Jaden Moss was the Winner of the 14 to 18 years category and won an amazing opportunity for a budding aviation photographer; an Air to Air Photoshoot at Gloucestershire Airport Staverton.  Eleanor Biegstraaten won second place with an image of paragliders at dusk and gets Mosquito and Spitfire BlackStar t-shirts.  James Connolly was awarded third place, winning a year’s magazine subscription. Alexander Prins and Joshua Wilson were Highly Commended in this category.

In the 18+ years category, Christopher Benson was awarded first place, with a stunning vertical image, winning a flight in the Bronco.  Second place was awarded to Roy Gore, who won a voucher to put towards an Aviation Tour, generously donated by Ian Allen.  Stuart Rutherford won third place and a year’s magazine subscription.  Paul Wallis and Kieran Mcauley were Highly Commended in this category.

Our thanks go to all those who entered, filling our screens with wonderful images, and to all the companies and individuals who so generously donated prizes.

Keep snapping (okay, keep looking for unusual angles, keep adjusting the shutter speed, keep posting your results)
