Oooh, nice! What time was this?
Came home from Lakenheath after the last jet of the afternoon wave was back in at around 17:00. Were they flying nights too?

This was about 6:50 onwards, I was at LN for a while before that and Marham earlier!

Oh, whereabouts at Lakenheath? We were at the forest entry in the morning and afternoon, with a break for lunch at Mildenhall.
Did anything else from Lakenheath fly this evening?

I was at the spotters car park for the last arrivals, I don't think anything else flew, looked like Marham were up later though!

Absolutely brilliant nigel, am always impressed (and very envious) of your night shots.
Am drawn to the last one - like the light beams shining ahead of it.

Love the last one,ethereal i think is the word.
Sunshine and showers tommorow so Marham will be bathed in wonderful light,just hope there are some sunlit aeroplanes to frame
against the angry skies....

STUNNING. Absolutely stunning!
We'll struggle to get better sunset shots than those in a while! Angry looking skies too. 1, 4 and 5 for me, well done Nigel
