Cracking aircraft, cracking shots and cra* weather. Well two out of three isn't bad! Seriously though I think the conditions somehow enhance these images especially no.1 with the lights. Hope to catch one of these again soon...

Must be awesome watching her come in and witnessing
the weight transferring from the wings to the undercarriage.

Thanks for posting.

Really like that first shot as she comes out of the gloom with lights on.
Like the canopy covers over the rear.
