Hi

 

I was exploring my mine of digital images looking for a picture of a specific aeroplane for a friend when I realised that since I took up digital photography in 2002, some significant types and airframes are no longer flying (temporarily or otherwise in the UK at least). I decided to trawl through the images and share some of my favourites. I apologise in advance for the quality of some of the oldest images as my equipment and skills are not what they are now...

 

I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I have!

You have some wonderful shots there! Difficult to pick a favourite as they are all special in their own way. Number three really could have been taken during the war. 

 

If I had to make choices then it would be the Harriers.

 

Looking forward to the next batch!

More excellent shots! Also a bit depressing as the realisation of what is now long gone hits home too. 

 

Thanks for posting these.

Thanks for the kind words, Latinbear. I know what you mean (and I suddenly felt old after looking at the older images!)

 

Thanks also to the members who "liked" the pictures.

Thanks for the extra "likes". I'm pleased that you enjoyed looking at the pictures. How I wish that the retired types were still in service and I wouldn't take them for granted now like I did then....

A beautiful collection. :clap:Thanks for sharing these. Some real stunners and memories in there. The head-on photo of the blue Sea Harrier FA2 in the first collection is particularly atmospheric, and I've had two glasses of wine so I'd better stop before I get to the Tornados.:heart: :lol:

Great shots as ever and some excellent memories to boot.  Hard to pick a favorite but the SHARs are particularly nice as of course are the VC10s1

 

Cheers

Ah - a rookie mistake! The photo clearly shows blue chocks and, as everyone knows, these didn't come in until 1946.
