I hate to agree with any moderator, but the single pilot running to his spit is stunning, have you tried it in sepia also B&W?

Oh really?! :grin:

I'm going to say one slightly negative thing, which is that one or two of these aren't up to the (very) high standard, sharpness and clarity of the rest (e.g. Vampire topside, the Typhoon shot straight after the Diamond Star line-up). Having said that - as we've come to expect from you - when they're good, they're really good, and the creativity and vision in some of these is terrific: I love the two-ship Blades take-off through the smoke, for example. Excellent shots throughout, but I just can't help thinking if you'd been just a little tighter on the quality control this would have been up there with the best airshow posts of the year...

As it is, its just exceptionally good!

Hope that's fair?! :smile:

Nice selection Richard,some of those a bit different from norm.Blades take off really stands out,especially like the "people"photos(Spit pilots and Guinot girls).Great to see BBD and Marinello together,was that Maurice in Marinello?

Great set all round - definitely like the people shots, like others have said - but the first one is very atmospheric.

Cracking set Richard, the Spitfire pilot running sums up the atomosphere of the 'scramble' nicely and the Vulcan shot is a cracker :clap:

Lovely set(s), the scramble shots in particular are fantastic. Looking at the Hurricane IIb departure shot, I'd imagine you and I were stood more or less right next to each other! The angle is almost identical; far left, near the entrance to the aircraft park?
