Thanks. Made it to quite a few RAF bases over the years, don't recall going to Fairford.

These are from safari in Nagara Hole forest in KR, India. These are shot over 3 days(two sessions of 3hrs each, per day). Highlight was sighting of 2 Elephants and one Tiger (for 2-3minutes). Shots are tight because I was using 500mm prime and subject were close to jeep. In fact I had to use FULL focus range on my lens. Tiger sighting happened at 6pm. Light was very poor. My settings were 1/125sec F5.6. AutoISO went up to 6400. I was using monopod. Open jeep safari vehicles are allowed only in Tourist zone where density of animals is less compared to core-zone where only Forest dept vehicles are allowed. Time being close to monsoon, chances of sightings are low because water is everywhere. Animals move a lot during summer in search of water, that increases chances of sighting. But in summer background is brown, not the green of monsoon.

I finally ended up with a A 1.4 L rear converter for my SMC-Pentax A 300 mm f/2.8 ED IF. No way to get a AF 1.7L, but the 1.4L is of better quality.
Some samples taken with my new KP :
