Threshold Navy Wings Nightshoot III

Post by Seamus »

Morning all,

Suprised not to see any images posted on here from another fine evening at Yeovilton last week, so here's a few of my efforts. Running the Merlin was the obvious highlight, but great to see the Shar and Wildcat under the lights too.

Wonderful stuff. Doesn't the Swordfish look sublime?! :love:
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

The SHAR and the F-4 are wonderful! Both look like they could take to the air tomorrow... :sad:

Nothing special at all, just a Canon 7D Mk II and 24-70 F2.8L used throughout.
