SPTA

SPTA - Salisbury Plain Training Area is located in the South West of the UK in Wiltshire, the MOD procured the land in 1898 and purchased large area's of land up to the Second World War. Today it is used by military for everyday training and to hold large scale exercises. The SPTA is a very popular area for aviation photographers, as it provides some great opportunities to photograph military helicopters and army hardware in a natural environment. I started visiting the SPTA in 2010 and have been a regular visitor since then, if you would like to visit the plain please research the area before you go, it is not only sensitive in an environment point of view but you could easily end up in an area that you should not be. I hope you like some of the images that I have captured over the last ten years.
