Re: Published Aviation Photograper

Re: Spec Comp December 2017 - Photo of the Year 2017

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. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4263/35514615760_6fca17cc9a_b.jpg RAF Texan T6-C II N2824B ZM323 Vyrnwy 7 by Martin Brown , on Flickr

Breitling Sion Air Show 2017 - more added

Take a line up of classic and modern fast jets, plus a few prop display teams, add the Swiss mountains and you've got the Breitling Sion Air Show. Its the first time the show's been staged since 2011 and it did not disappoint one bit with all sorts to see framed by the stunning scenery around. Whils...

Having stopped off at the SPTA on the way down south, and survived a night crossing from Plymouth to Roscoff, we arrived at BAN Landivis...
