Topic of the week #25: retired military

Post by DeanW »

I'm feeling particularly nostalgic this week, so I'd like to see 5 of your shots of retired military aircraft. For this theme the image must have been taken while the aircraft was in service (no warbirds, museum exhibits etc!)

Nice to have such strong variety this week. The image that really caught my eye was Sacha’s Dominie - you don’t often see that type in such a dynamic position! Over to you, Sacha.
