First five shots, Catalina and banking Synchro Red are absolutely superb, Nigel. The F-16s look a bit soft on my screen, but that's not to take away from the capture: the aircraft looks great over the water nonetheless!

Many thanks to all for the comment, re the F16's, yes I am just about to replace them again, since the changes at Flickr I'm not 100% happy with the way images look once uploaded and especially when linked to other sites (such as UKAR), I suspect they are using different resizing algorithms!

Lovely set. The first five, minus the P-51, remind of the BoB so much. :clap: :biggrin:

F16 shots re-uploaded!

Apparently the lady who was threatening to jump off Beachy head on Sunday had killed her husband with a hammer earlier on!!

I like the Catalina with the yacht, sadly others look like a typical day at Beachy Head occasional aircraft that fly to distantly.

Thanks for the comment;
I used a 600mm f4IS with/without a 1.4X and a Canon EOS1DsMkIII on a Wimberley head and Gitzo tripod.
