Brize Friday 3rd Feb.

Hi all, not posted for a while! Took a trip to Brize last Friday in hope of some different shots from the 08 end. We arrived there and the wind died off, meaning a change to 26, so we ended up spending the day at 26 in the end, which deemed to be quite sucsessfull. I have missed the Herks since they left my local - Being Lyneham, so was nice to have 2 bashing the Circuit all afternoon!

First up a departure to Cambridge, in very dull grey weather.

C130J returns on 08

Then we moved to 26 where the Sun said Hi!

This was one hell of a low Aproach!

K Overshoots as the J is outbound.

VC-10 Departure

Head on with the K

And to finish, some Wide Angles. Could be a tad better as parts of the Herks are soft. Quite pleased I managed to catch the Moon though!

Cheers for looking,

Sam.

Love the first wide angle.

Think the Tristar's a beautiful aircraft too. Strange though that may be!

Hi Sam, I like a lot your very impressive set of images. I like especially the images 1,9,10 and 11.
I like the head on shots of hercules and the final approach too. Thanks for share.
