Cracking set Rick, all as good as the last, but if pushed id have to say the head on Hunters and the '10s for me....and the visiting Hercs are nice, and the queue of 212s, oh and that 109 looks familiar....and nice catch on the U2, and....oh I give up, they're all really good :tongue2: :clap:

Well done Rick your hard work and patience pays you again :clap: :clap:
One of these must be POTW but it's anyone's guess which one.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Quality and quantity! Nice series of pics Rick. I like the Apaches lining up for fuel and the sunset series at the end.

Some great images especially of the helicopters. Interested why you thought of leaving the top of the barbed wire fence in the C-130 shot, I've thought about doing that before but not convinced, still not to be honest!

Thanks for all the kind comments, glad you enjoyed them.

Regarding the fence, I posted the shots from Fairford purely as a record of their detatchment, the photos weren't great so I didnt spend too long on editing them. If it was sunny and a better C-130 then I would have cloned the fence out.

Sorry to hear your not feeling too good Ian. Hopefully see you about at the end of the week?

Hope to see a lot of you at Northolt on Thursday :joystick:

Some cracking shots in there, particularly some of the egg whisks... A330s look even better in military colours as well!
