Nice set Mike.

Good catch with the overflight, and getting the photo with one on the boom.

Thanks for the comments

The latter shots are quite soft but I thought I would post a few reapers as they seem to working up for a deployment to Tenerife ( although according to another post on here it is hotting up again between Saudia and Iran)
