RAF Lossiemouth 30-31/01/12

Post by Macc »

Two beautiful days at the end of the month at Lossie. As XV(R)sqn weren't flying the first day I was only there for a couple of hours but the second day was excellent with gorgeous weather and a brilliant sunset at the end. A Typhoon from Leuchars also dropped in for a few approaches near the end of the day.

Monday was sunny in the morning but cloudy in the afternoon.

Tuesday was the opposite, with it cloudy in the morning and then the sun broke out soon after.

Lovely set. Lossie looks a great place for taxiing shots. Burner take-offs in the sunset are really nice as is the last one. :clap:
