Awesome set, sometimes I think people forget that the guys and girls in all our amred forces have loved ones waiting at home for their safe return, sadly sometimes its not to be. Love all the human angle shots, that dog looks so excited to see its owner, good old spaniels - mine goes beserk evrytime i go home after a day at work :yahoo: , and the smile on the childrens faces say it all. :clap:

No.9 - Very, very nice :smile:

Thanks for posting these shots Rob . I am very surprised that they have not attracted more than five comments as at least three of them should be nominated for picture of the year , never mind of the month . Maybe you would have have had a better response if you had waited till it was dark or had 20-30 other photograhers posting the same shots . They really are superb .

1st time I looked at this thread this Morning because it had 19 replies.

Tornadoes return to Marham everyday so just thought they would be run of the mill on the approach shots of the returning jets.

Fantastic set and diferent to the norm :biggrin:

Lovely to see the smiles on their faces on their return.

Well done Rob.
