What a lot to choose from! For me it was this shot of Pinkie low level on her way to RIAT. She was a regular around LFA7 but never armed.

If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

Evening all.
Sadly earlier this year we said a sad farewell to XV Squadron and the last Tornado GR-4s at RAF Lossiemouth, here is one of the squadrons finest at the very end still doing its thing! As the continued draw down of the the mighty Tornado becomes ever closer.

To think that of all the fast jet photos I've taken this year, it's one of a prop that that I'm entering. One of the RAF's new Texan's over Lake Vyrnwy back in July.

I very seldom post here, despite lurking for a long time - some may know me as "Tommy", one of the staff team on UKAR. I might make it my new year's resolution to post here more frequently in 2018!

Anyway, what I consider to be my photo of the year - the awesome French Navy Rafale M at Yeovilton:
