I was lucky to see this Chinook on the second day at Dunsfold, 18(B) Squadron Centenary markings, but my pics are not a patch on yours, well done.

Can't take anything away from the shots as they are all superb! I do however question your 'luck', given your Avatar too! Next you'll be saying Nick & Rick just happened to come along the cliff-path at that exact time.
I understand you may be forbidden to divulge the source of your heads-up, but more to the point if that was 'luck', can you give me the winning numbers for Euro-Millions for next Saturday? Excellent set of images you have there. :clap:

Stagger,
Thanks and glad you like the images. Sometimes things are kept quiet and forbidden yes, and i know what it feels like because it has happened to me many of times. Me and Rick were together all day but that's irrelevant.

I'm not one for blabbing and keep things quiet when i do have things set up. One reason, you got to give some to receive some. That's not always the case from other individuals.

Same here, I've not seen this scheme at all unfortunately, but these are some wonderful photos with an astonishing backdrop.
