Amazing shots, thanks for sharing. I love the Buccaneers on the ground and Hunter(?).

How stable was the C-130 with that lot moving all that air?

A superb set of shots, I can almost hear those growling Griffons - if only we had one on the airshow circuit!

Yes was the 8/8/88 event. There was no noise from the Shackeltons just the engines from the C-130 with an open door. The only turbulence was from the guys either side of me pushing to get shots. Glad you like the shots.
