Stunning set Rick. The light on the Midair Squadron is fantastic but that opening shot of the Vapour Eagle must surely be POTW!

Bloody hell, what a set. Fantastic. :clap: I'd echo the comments above but also really like the Talon and the Seakings.

Lovely shots indeed, but that first one is an absolute belter!!

With regards to that first shot, you really need to pop over to fighter control, and enter that in the December photo contest, it'll be hilarious...........trust me, you'll see why! :lol:

Another vote for No1 from this set in terms of dynamic capture, but for pure beauty the Canberra takes some shifting.

Do do, do it, do it!! How often do you get an opportunity like this?

Technically it should win, as it's the sharpest of the three.

An impressive set of awesomeness!

For a brief moment I thought the 3rd one was a Tomcat. Than I got a reality check :sad:
