Great shots there It was a great day I was near the beach :clap: Though after seeing the F-16 again that has to be the best display then the typhoon

Any ideas why Scot stop half way though his display?

I was wondering if that was the reason because those clouds were low and they said aircraft were not aloud below 100ft from the sea when it cleared he came back so you could be right.

We parked in the car park next to the pub on Beachy Head Road and walked up and over the cliff and down a bit, so the light house was on our right. I hope that's some help :smile: There were quite a few few of us being blasted by the wind there :biggrin:

Lovely lighting on the BBMF aircraft. The Lanc looks splendid for a change. Usually when I shoot it from below all I get is a dark brown smudge. :-)
