They're a bit good, you've caught them well, not sure if the weather will play ball that well again.

Hunter PR11 WT723

Just read on FC that the beautiful and formerly airworthy PR11 has just appeared mounted on a pole in Tyseley, Birmingham.

Sadly, never really got a chance to see it in the stunning colours that it had more recently been painted in. :frowning2:

Very nice, you were right, you were stood very close by!

I missed the Commanche Spitfire landing across the formation, I'll blame Tilly for distracting me, she doesn't read this anyway so she'll never know. Great shot.
