23RD.
The day started out looking fairly promising with the sun shining and clear blue skies, that was until the mist/fog whatever you want to call it came.
The early movements nice to watch but the shots aren't worth posting due to them being mainly backlit, it was nice to get a pass of a 29 Squadron Twin Stick although it was a struggle to see it though the clag! Cheers for the laughs, mainly Mark doing his best Facejacker impressions :lol:

1. Only usable shot from the day

24TH.
Met Tal in the red carpark at 7.30 and with everywhere being clagged in we went for a drive up BYG to try and get some shots, excellent decision as the view was fantastic!

Then headed off to Cad with Tal doing his best Sebastian Loeb impression on the way down from BYG :crazy:

It looked like it was going to be a fairly slow day with just one Hawk T1 and two Tornado's teasing us in the distance over Dol, the boss of 3 Sqn then showed up putting in a cracking 2nd pass. The scanner then started going mental, we had Rico Flt through then a fluffy GR4 and Rico back around for the second time.

25TH.
We started on BYG, would have been nice if the Eagles could have kept it a little lower for longer but it was great to see. I'm not going to bother posting my Pavehawk shots for a while or if at all tbh.

12. Probably cropped a little to much

Really good set! 10 and 11 and fantastic. the F-15s that you have said might be cropped too much are fine. I would not have noticed if you hadnt said.

Wonderful set! 10 and 11 are breathtaking, and I agree about the F-15 being cropped just nicely.

Cracking set, and I agree with you, #14 is stunning, probably enhanced by the fact that it is just the plain and the vapour.
