Awesome deployment on the doorstep

Well how great was that, to have all the action just up the road, as I sit here typing this a B-52 has just gone over the house heading back.

Think its clear to say that myself and Andy F managed to get to most locations, like Lloyd I was after something special and different, overhead with fisheye for me, first attempt was ok so to speak, but wanted better so had another go following day, posted here are shots in no particular order from three trips out.

You'll end up on one of those secret CIA flights back to the States if you keep getting detail like that!

Just jealous I couldn't get here.

Wonderful set of photographs, Laurie.

2, 4, 6, 8, 11 and 15 are fantastic, but it's a set with so much variety and originality. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Cracking set, especially like the Buff taxiing out with all the smoke behind. Like the wideangle shots but, it's a personal preference this and not a criticism, I am not sure about number 5, The distortion makes it look more banana than boomerang :grin: . :clap: :clap:
