Morning all!

Spent last Thursday on Cad West, and it was a beautiful day for it too. Some great passes from the locals, Marham and Brize Norton made for a good trip out.

Tornado starting the day off nicely, if a bit high...

Bulkhead 1 & 2 with some very nice passes.

Saw ZM415 on ADSB Exchange at low level at Swansea, heading north, and just wondered if I might be about to break my Low Level Atlas duck. Surely enough, around 30 mins later, from the direction of the Bwlch....

A little bit later I got lucky again, with ZM407 coming through from the same area as ZM415.

Shortly after, the locals at Valley, on a temporary deployment at Llanbedr due to the National Eisteddfod at Bodedern, near RAF Valley and under their path for departure and recovery, called up for a few passes.

Finally, a pass from an RAF Brize Norton based Hercules rounded the day off.

Thanks for viewing everyone, comments welcome!

Great shots! I was on Bwlch exit on Thursday, 407 was as low as anything through the pass there, unbelievable! Sadly I chickened out on trying to get full disc prop blur!!
