Sorry, but I think I got a little carried-away at RAF Cranwell yesterday, the flying skills on show were outstanding.

All shots are RAW conversions in Lightroom

Wow! Terrific stuff. Last one stands out for me but they are all impressive.

Thank You David, I like the uniformity of the last shot but its not quite as dramatic as some of the others.

Take a bow Sir ... these are award winning quality ... you must be thrilled to bits and as proud as Punch ... AWESOME  ....just awesome !

That is an outstanding series Colin.  It seems picky to highlight any of them but the first image and the tenth image just push ahead of the rest by a nose.  Super work.

Fabulous shots, Colin.

Is the "circular" manoeuvre (Pic 1 & 2) new?  I don't recall ever seeing that one before.

Oooh - no... I definitely haven't seen that before.  It must be a few years since I've seen a display though.
Thanks for posting the video.

Good question Gareth, I think it was last year I first saw the Halo being displayed, although with RAF Scampton just a few miles away we often see displays that are 'in practice'. Works best when the Reds are head-on to the audience but with so many restriction these days they can't always do that. 

Many thanks to you all for the terrific response and wonderful replies. And one final pic I forgot...

S  O  R  R  Y  Polly I promise to try harder... :sofa:

Lens used - Nikon 55/300mm VR a good lens for the price, although they seem to have jumped up a little in price since I bought mine a couple of years ago. I am considering buying something a little longer, I really could use a 600mm, maybe later in the year we will have to see how the 'spare cash' flow goes.
