At long last I managed to get down to the Loop, and the weather and aircraft followed me too! ....... and not a Barn Owl in sight!!!!!
Cad west on Monday and various spots at the Bwlch on Tuesday. All shot with Canon EOS1DsMkIII and 600mmf4IS

The Herc, Harrier and especially that last F-15 are the stand-outs for me, but they are all excellent. I'm going to have to visit there soon! Thanks for sharing these Nigel.
