Spent a bloody cold day up at Cottesmore today to catch ther Harriers before they go. Thanks to Dan and his Dad for the lift and the company! It was a very slow day at first, with the fog preventing flying. Eventually things kicked off in the afternoon as the special schemes went up for a photoshoot, as well as a few sorties being flown.

Didn't get anything good of the camo bird. My batteries were playing up and conveniently kept going flat whenever it was on approach!! :sad: :mad:

Super set Dean. The penultimate shot does it for me, great light and the surface spray adds to it. :clap: :cool: :sad:

Excellent set Dean.

Cockpit shot for me - always nice to see a different shot. Tried similar myself, but couldn't get a focus.

Ha yeah, I got bored of introducing myself as a retired, 1950s build, Austrian jet! :grin:

Planning a base visit but not sure how much time I've got before it's too late!
