The Last Waltz - My Harrier Farewell 28/10/10

Post by Trevsy »

I had a super day today at Cottesmore. I was watching the Harriers for what is likely to be my last time.

It was very busy indeed, I suspect that many of the pilots were looking to log precious last few hours in this amazing jet. They made the most of it, countless go-arounds, rollers and vertical landings, I feel quite lucky to have experienced it all today.

That's a fair criticism looking at it again, it was a bit wonky. Have tweaked!

Another vote for the last image of the first set. The twin-tub image is also very nice.
