A "Little" treat at Gloucester today.

I was lucky to get it.

I was having me butties and didn't have the radio at hand.

I looked up and saw it approaching and managed to grab the camera in time (it was still in the bag etc, took about two seconds to get it ready!).

It did two missed approaches, crew waved, nearly did a wing over and left.

You've got a couple of great shots. I would like to see one painted in the old Airfix Hercules scheme of Dark Earth, Mid Stone & Black complete with the original markings.

Good skill, eating and groping for a camera,bet you've got lemon curd all over it now!

Where were you in Gloucester?

They did a good 45 mins of circles right over our site, over cleeve hill then back out over the airport. It was an impressive sight and surprisingly quiet! Disappeared back to Belize just before a biblical hail storm passed over!!

Nice pics and like others have said, despite being a huge fan of the Herk, it is growing on me too and I`m considering the 1/72nd Revell kit as somebody on e bay was selling British decals for it.

Cheers

Tony
