Oh you beauty! What a fantastic shot! Well done!

The weather was kinder to you than my own flight the previous Sunday... and so was the pilot!

It costs quite a wedge, but isn't it an experience worth every penny?! Love MH434!

Lovely shot! I think If I'd have known you were a fellow Ukarian, I'd have made special effort to come and say hello! :smile:

Excellent update!

You could hardly wish for a better subject, weather, and final results. Great stuff!

You got some great angles - it seems it makes a big difference who pilots MH434, because on my own flight previously (different pilot), we didn't get those lovely top-sides. Which seat were you in, in the Rapide?

Thanks for the comments! Tankbuster - It was a "Squadron leader package".

Here's a final selection, adding a bit more narrative to the day...

Superb shots, great day for it too. Great to see Nigel Lamb flying MH434, both he and Lee Proudfoot fly it just like the Hanna's used to.
