19TH APR: Middle Eastern Promise

19TH APR: Middle Eastern Promise

Postby Lloyd H on Sat 20 Apr 2013, 1:13 pm

First day out yesterday since the end of February so it was good to be back out again. Spent the day on Bluebell which I haven't done since last year, forgot how much fun coming back down was. Company as usual was great so thanks to Gaz, Tal, Josh, MJ, Lev, Mark, Neil & Dai.

Funny old day weather wise, showers in the morning, breaks of sun and blowing a gale at times but I can't complain really as the sun shone through when the Saudi Tornado IDS showed up.

1. Shots from the first pass aren't great so only really managed two..

10. 3(F) Squadron Typhoon heading through the Bwlch. Was great watching him throw the thing about even if he was little too far out for us at BB.

Wonderful images.

7 & 8 stand out for me. What an awesome machine the Tornado is and it looks so good fast and low with wings swept back... brilliantly captured.
