A lovely crisp, clear set there Rich with nice clean backgrounds (no BAE banners, tents, etc. :up: ). Best shots posted so far :clap: Nice to see they are taxiing stuff all the way up the West end this year. Are most of the fixed wing aircraft going down to the loop on arrival?

Beefy,

Only went Yesterday so cant comment on Today.
The Guys in the tower made a real effort Yesterday.
Sending a fair bit long, just a bit of a mess up in the Afternoon with them going long and then doing a 180 instead of coming off at Bravo and re entering.

Still we got the 2 types we wanted :)

The Polish sat for must have been 20 minutes. The Italian Tornado and AMX arrived and a few of us didnt even realise :cool:

Totally agree with everything Beefy said. Perfect subjects, perfect background, perfectly photographed. Best so far...
