Many heartfelt thanks for all your efforts (I've even installed iPhoto onto my iPad thanks to the editing powers you've shown it to have) now enjoy the show and once again, many thanks.

Yep they were the last movements in, other than something that woke me up in the early hours.

Excellent work Andy!

Out of interest - which service provider did you use for your uplink connection - I tried to use my Vodafone G3 connection on my Galaxy SII but it was too slow to be of much use.....

Thanks for all the kind comments guys,

I must admit, the mention in the commentary completely took me by surprise yesterday, I was wrestling with my poncho and just stopped in my tracks "I could have swore he just said my name"!

In answer to a couple of questions,

Operator: 3 Network
Do not believe their coverage map, it says the airfield has perfect coverage, it does not. I got a good signal in the FRIAT enclosure but awful in p&v east.

File Size:
Unknown, iPhoto down scales images to around 4mp and uploads full size jpegs without any interaction.

Amazing pics, and what a lot of work to bring them to everyone. Very pleased to see our aircraft featured (yellow Sea King) - given the number of arrivals, I wouldn't have been surprised if we'd been omitted in favour of something more exotic.

The trip down from Valley on Friday was hard work start to finish, taking the 'scenic' route all the way round the Lleyn peninsula and then Fishguard...the wipers were on all the way, including the little-used high-speed mode! Today's homeward run was a much more civilised affair!

Definitely thread of the year, once again thanks. :clap: :clap:
