Good Afternoon all.
January was a good Month for fast Jets.
February has been the helos turn.

Massive thanks to the TSW at the FRP, plus all the aircrew :clap: :clap:

Really fantastic images. The weather looks perfect with the dark background sky and light on most of them. First Merlin selection really catches my eye, but the full lot top notch. :clap: Could do with a selection like that up here :drool:

Terrific images throughout, but the first Merlin really catches my eye: it really jumps out at you!

Nice pics Rich. Looks somewhat greener when I last saw that lot flying together (minus Gazelle of course!!).

Which naughty boy let the tyres down on the Lynx then?!! :grin:

Great set Rich. 7D paying dividends and looking good. Rather cold today and mainly cloud.

Thats is one awesome set of pics. I would be proud if I had one like them let alone a whole set! :clap: :clap: The lighting certainly played ball for you, is the area accessible to the public or not? Well done and thanks for sharing.
