That Phantom shark mouth is awesome - and an interesting weapons load too. And that RAF typhoon take off shot with a (very) early gear retraction is very nice. Very envious. Look forward to seeing more from the next 2 days.

Cracking shots, the TuAF Rhino's look sublime. By the looks of it most spirited departure has to go to the 3 & 11 Sqn Typhoons

Well done Sir!
Looks like you spent great time in Turkey. Heat distortion was not a problem there?

It is very present, but workable, mainly due to being so close !
