Topic of the week #85 - Mass formations

Post by Bernard »

It's getting really hard to find a topic that hasn't been proposed so far (always the same old story, I know).
It seems that mass formations hasn't been chosen yet. (It may be same type or not)
Aerobatic teams are excluded and, as usual, a maximum of 5 pictures per participant.

Not sure if five constitutes a "mass formation" but it's not an everyday mix...

This subject was not easy and despite this, the level of entries was, once again, very high.
Thank you all.
Although they are not of very high quality, it is the pictures of buccs2b that I liked the most, with a real mass formation of Hercules and the picture of those iconic Lightnings.
Over to you, Tony

Thank you Bernard, that caught me on the hop. I'll get my thinking cap on as post a new competition as soon as.
