Narrowing it down to three is tricky. Even though I've only been visiting Lossie on-and-off for a few years, I've got plenty of Tonka shots. These three might not be technically the best shots, but they're ones which have more meaning to me.

Departing clean to RTP in 2017.

ImageDSC_5766 by Trilobite Photography, on Flickr

XV(R)'s final sortie, and a spectacular low pass from 079 after having had a hell of a time getting off the ground. There are better shots from the 23 end, but I liked this angle.

ImageDSC_7228 by Trilobite Photography, on Flickr

XV(R) disbandment and a swept low pass from one of the Marham aircraft past the pill box.

...and I hope you don't mind breaking the three shots rule, but one last one that seems appropriate for the end of the a/c's life - two of my daughters watching as 079 taxis out to leave Lossie for the final time:

A long shot,

Marham32 came in and fired the flares only to report that the system was malfunctioning. Still, two were better than none. Never seen before, or since and certainly never will again.

Mind you, after the end of March there's not likely to be a lot of fast jet LL action in the Selkirk valley. :(
