Afternoon all,

Here's a selection of my favourite non-airshow images from what has been my most productive and enjoyable year away from the shows with the camera.

February saw two trips in a week to SPTA in some stunning Winter light

In March I headed up the road to Yeovilton to catch my final glimpse of the mighty Junglie Sea King as they headed out on their retirement flypast.

In May, I enjoyed a busy day on Saturday for Op AIRES TOR as well as a quick evening visit to Exeter Airport, rounding off the month with a very quiet day on SPTA

A quiet August saw only a brief jaunt to the local, before my final trip to SPTA in September to round off the year.
