Cracking set Rich and a great week for you all around. 06 departures are great and certainly makes a big difference for the taxi shots. Sunsets are very enjoyable too.

Regards, Ian

Top quality shots, Rich.

Love the light down the intakes of that head on taxi shot.

Some views of Marham we don't see very often on here.

Thanks for posting.

I have said this before, sometimes less is more. You obviously have talent with the gear, some images jump off the screen and some are just good shots. Nice, but try and be selective?

Sorry everyone.
Photos should be back Tommorow.

Stu, the taxi shots were roughly half way between the HAS sites.

Beautiful images Rich, great variation and angles :clap: :clap: :clap:

No, post as many as you can, its good to see as many different jets as possible, especially when they are shot so well and we can actually see the markings.
