PReoch's Summer of 2017 (So Far)...

PReoch's Summer of 2017 (So Far)...

Postby PeterR on Wed 02 Aug 2017, 8:59 pm

Evening All! :wave:

It's been a busy few months for me, mainly with some little event in Shropshire :grin:. But away from there I've been jetting off to Belgium (Tactical Weapons Meet) and Germany (NATO E-3A Open Day) as well as getting a behind the scenes look at both RNAS Yeovilton and of course RIAT too! Before that I also visited Abingdon and the Halfpenny Green Fly-In. Also done a bit of civvie spotting but I'll keep those dirty airliners out of this post for you all... :tongue2:

As always, I know my images aren't perfect so any criticism and advice is warmly welcomed! And of course any (sensible) questions will be answered where possible too. The images aren't posted in any particular order so sit back and enjoy. :cool:

Now to give the camera some rest until the next engagement, which I think is Biggin Hill? :dunno:

Splendid stuff, mate. Loving the very unique angles on things. Awesome opening shot. It's so ridiculous you managed to get that machine into RAF Cosford :hypno:

The close crop works a treat for the Gazelle, but I'd have maybe given the M2K a little more room to breathe?

Toppers set overall, though. :worship:

That first shot.... awesome Peter!

That Vietnam scene..... amazing!

That was some "little event in Shropshire" I have to say. You want to have a word with the organising team and thank them for getting that Atlas and staging the Vietnam set-piece :clap:

Oh wait...... :whistle:

Very very nice indeed! That Saeta is a real surprise, didn't think any were still flying.
