I've hardly got out to use the camera in ages but finally got the chance of a few days in the loop this week. I'd hoped for a few more snowy backdrops but just really got the bitterly cold wind instead!

Monday, Bwlch Exit: 6 passes from Hoss-31 and 32 and then Monster1 and 2
...
Tuesday, Bwlch: Typhoon Chaos1 and 2, single typhoon then Marham joined in with Primus 1 and 2 and a single MRH05
...
Thanks for looking

Hi Simon, magnificent shots! Where do you have an opportunity to be at 'eye level' with these planes / pilots? Lake District?

Awesome shots Simon thanks for posting!

Hi Graham,

Tornado is schedules to leave RAF service mid-2019. There are now only approx. 30 left in the active fleet. Another squadron will disband at the end of this month so I expect that to drop further. The "bomb bus" will still be in service with the German, Italian and Saudi airfoces for sometime.

Thanks for all the great comments - appreciated.

Yes these were taken in the "Mach Loop" which is part of Low Fly Area 7 (LFA7) centered around the Snowdonia national park in mid-Wales. I have also shot them in the Lake District (LFA14) but the shots tend to be less dynamic than those the loop offers.
Cheer Simon

Great shots Simon.  The backgrounds really look good at that time of year even if you would have preferred more snow.  It will be good to see some F-35s go through there in the future as some of the recent shots of them in Star Wars canyon have been brilliant.

Hi Folks.
A couple of shots of G-HIOW the Hampshire and Isle of Wight air ambulance helicopter landed and taking off from the recreation ground at the end of the road, the helicopter is used for emergency collections and for critical patient transport and until the completion of a helipad at the county’s hospital the field was a recognised transfer point. (It may still be!) I have no idea which role the chopper was fulfilling on this occasion, it was and is not any of my business!  ;)
