Spent a very enjoyable couple of hours on Thursday morning shooting the Mil-17 on Salisbury Plain.
Only my second encounter with this Russian beast, the first being in one of the confined areas. Pleased to see her out in the open before it dissappear's for good.

Thanks to the pilot who gave us a couple of cracking fast passes!! :topbombing:

Cracking set Paul. Love the close up especially. Well worth the run and thanks for the lift.

Superb shots, but has Montoya given in on NASCAR for this season now and decided to fly from Boscombe instead? :)
