Hercules Specials Omen Formation.

On Tuesday I was given the opportunity to capture some images of the current 'Specials' of the Herc fleet at RAF Brize Norton. After several emails and phone calls over the last month everything fell in to place with a 3 hour low level sortie and only 30 seconds of sun, lucky for me they were both in position at the right time.
Huge thanks must go to the crews of Omen Formation for there flying and patience and I hope I've done it justice for them.
Comments welcome and I hope you like them.

We had the 50 years one doing some tight circuits round here a fortnight ago before performing a flypast at Credenhill. :smile:

Very nice Liam, glad it all worked out for you. Shame ZH880 is back at Cambridge for work and I have heard the Aniv markings will be removed.
