Great shots Gill, and thanks for your efforts also!

Glad to see I'm not in any of the 'enthusiast' shots! :lol: :lmao:

Hey Trevster - does that mean you are disappointed that you are not in the shots :smile: I am sure you will be in somebody's shots!
The trouble is that many folk know me but I don't know everyone - I know a lot of people by recognition from the end of the runway etc but not by name! Sorry I left you out! :sad: Glad you had a good day! :love:

There's some ugly buggers amongst that lot, Gill... Have you checked your lenses since you got home? Wouldn't be surprised to find one or two have broken!

(I'm still using that mug, btw... It's a bit chipped now. Rather like me, in fact...)
I am not a loony... I used to be, but I think I am better now...

Hell no, quite glad I'm not in them - hate being that side of the camera! :)

Did mean to come over say hello but got way-laid every time. Next time...

Great shots there Gill looks like everybody had a great day :clap:

Only found out this morning they increased it from 50 to 100 attendees, still never got on an invite gutted :sad:

All the best Dougie :smile:

Great shots, only quickly looked through mine.

Thanks for your part in such a great day and to those at Leuchars in organising and assisting on the day.

Just spotted myself towards the back of #13!

Dougie even 100 was not enough - the number of applications were nearly 300 and there was no way 300 could be handled by the small group of volunteers that manned the event! It was originally 50 and was going to stick to 50 but when they saw the demand then another bus was arranged and a further 50 were drawn out of the tub with 12 reserves - the rest got the 'Sorry' email!

If there is another event then maybe you will be lucky but I hear you got on the Lossie one :smile:

Would be great if there was another event like this, was thinking of applying when I learned that it was overbooked so decided not. Definately hoping to get to the Airshow.

Concur Ms H. Thank you to Team RAF Lossiemouth, Team RAF Leuchars AND Team Squadron Prints. I think everyone on each of the base visits came away with some amazing pics and your set is an example of that - the first one..... :drool:
Many highlights for me but the small gift at the end of the Leuchars visit is special :clap:
