That is without doubt some of the finest photos I've seen in all my life. You've bled the situation dry and made the most of what was there for you. :win:

Personal favourites are the first and last Tornado photos. Outstanding.

People, take note!

The A-10 and the third Tornado shot stand out for me. Excellent.

One word....stunning :clap:

Edited to add more words. The first half dozen are absolutely stunning and the series of the last Tonka pictures are also incredible, and the last one makes my blood run cold, very descriptive....
Well done.

Cheers,
Jeff.

I know you think you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realise that what I said is not what I meant.

Has there ever been a case where most of the pictures of the week have been from one thread and one photographer? If not I think that precedent might soon be set. Brilliant set of shots :clap: :clap: :clap:

I've come back to comment again - they're brilliant! :love: :love: :love: Number 4 is another corker.

What's the pattern under the wings in shot #13? Tails being moved during pre-flight checks?

Stunning thread.
Nice variety too - I like the AV-8Bs in there :)
The tornado shots are awesome.
