Just this for now, but I'm sure I can rummage a couple more from somewhere!

Was gonna stick this in the "rarest catch" thread, but I've already posted me one photo, so I'll be banished to the tallest tower and fed nought but marmite oreos for three weeks until they let me out.

Over three(!) years ago now, by pure chance. A rare machine this. One of the very first HAD Tigres delivered to FAMET, and this particular serial/machine has seldom been photographed ever since.

Completely lucky on the camera settings too. Not a clue what I was doing. Smashed it onto Aperture Priority, and luckily there was enough light about, but most of these were at 1/100th, and I could have easily bolloxed the entire set! Luckily it was a gorgeous Spanish January evening, and enough light made it into the camera and it was at a high enough f-stop that I (accidentally) hit the sweet-spot in terms of maximum lens sharpness. I've never been a tremendous fan of "full discs" but I know others like them, so looks like I went all-out to get *that* shot of a rare machine.

In truth, I just lucked the absolute hell out of it, from seeing the damn thing, to having the crew pose it for us, to my photos actually turning out not an absolute bag of proverbial I probably deserved them to be :lol:

Aaaaaanyway, no-one ever reads this crap. I've started hiding soft-core language problems to see if the other staffers are awake...

At any rate, what wonderfully-camouflaged machines these things are;

Very nice Tommy, and enjoyed the write-up.

Why can't this be sent over to RIAT (or similar airframe anyway) rather than the Formation Flymo team ? :wink:
