nice to see something different, lovely light too.
When the smoke has cleared and the bullets cease, another soldier rests in peace. The politicians who caused the fight, rest at home no danger in sight.

Nice pics, but I fail to get excited over something so bland, that will one day be a common sight.

Not quite sure that it was an 'amazing achievement', seeing that the first crossing of the Atlantic by a UAV was August 21, 1998, 20 years ago!!. I would have been surprised if things hadn't developed since then!!!. :) [and a civilian aircraft on 'Fighter Control' tut-tut! :) :)

I thought it was an amazing achievement. Considering it was being flown by a pilot some 4000 miles away and had to navigate the highly congested air corridors in the UK and then land at Fairford. Is that not amazing? :thumbs:

GUy on the right is obviously mourning the fact he didn't bring his bigger lens.
