Decide to take a trip to Coningsby to catch Thumper back in the air, so nice to see her flying again :love: The sun was shining!

Lovely shot :drool:
But personally I think the contrast needs bumping up a bit, the blacks look a little washed out

If only they flew a pass like that for the crowds at airshows. PA474's topside is like forbidden fruit - tastes so much sweeter!

Appreciate the comments fellas.

I have to admit I did feel a little naughty shooting her top side, but felt so good.

Understand where you're coming from but that would have to be a veeery short display line to get that amount of bank- don't forget this is during a 360 and the Lanc is surprisingly sprightly in that department!

Probably practised in the simulator first. :ninja:

All are excellent images, with No. 1 my favourite. I presume Thumper is a regular at Legends and will make an appearance for me next year.
Cheers,
