Canadian C17

Post by MADPIX » Tue Sep 05, 2017 10:12 pm

A very brief visit from this bird last week. The light got really nice just at the right time so I shot the visiting CP-140 from a distance.
701 which I think was in the static for RIAT lining up at RAF Lossiemouth.

Beautiful.
I've said it before and will continue to say it, 'that light at Lossiemouth/Kinloss is just special'.
That, coupled to the frames seen there make a fantastic combination.
I might sometimes miss my time in the RAF - so every month it reminds me how great it was, with an obscenely big cheque

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