Electric Orliks

Post by JBGR4 »

A complete fluke from a burst of shots at Waddington on Thursdays arrivals just before the camera went away and we got battered by torrential rain, wind and lightning.

That's one of those "1 in a million chance" photos we all want to get.

Well done, thanks for sharing

Thanks everyone, want sure if it would come out, looked very dark on the camera. Im sure anyone who was there would tell you how difficult the conditions were. Think the pilot even browned his pants a little, as he dropped flares then immediately landed.

I hoped somebody would 'strike' lucky. There were flashes behind the Reds' display too, which would have been a great image. Someone out there might have a surprise when they download their cards.
