Considering this was probably a proffesional photo assignment the photographs are poor with what looks like vaseline on your lens. I would suggest some better editing techniques which should improve them. Mind you, you can't polish a turd!

You can't just keep recycling old images, you should have taken some at RIAT, :kiss:

Surely they could slip one of those in the back of a Herc instead of the tent and bring to Fairford :whistle: or will we have to wait for them to bring the Il76 :heyhey:

Impressive stuff Kev... :clap: As capercaillie states why can't they put a couple of these into the back of the regular Herc for RIAT?

As usual no captions!!! When will people get it into their heads that not every one is up to speed on all aircraft and air forces and couldn't give a Sh1T about RIAT! Rant over for the time being

I am assuming they are Jordanian.

Supprised no-one has commented that the left (as we look at it) rocket tube has three live missiles in it and the right has four loaded. But then again I know you had to be there to see watching fast jet crew running away from us shouting ******* hell at the time the Cobras were dancing in front of us. :hide: :hide: :hide:

Nice photos Mate

Very impressive, those Cobras look the business in that scheme.

Bad day? There's nothing wrong with just politely asking what the types of air arm is if you're not sure. But yes, they're Jordanian.

Fine set kev of a very rare type. I remember the days when US ARmy types were often seen in the UK.

Well said that man above re 'country'. Not sure why a rant was needed.

Take care, Iani

Jordanian Cobras :shock: Very nice.

Manage to catch any of their other rotary types? They've got some nice Blackhawks and Hughes 500s too I believe.
