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.

Wow Colin ... that has to be the best set of  photos  I  have ever seen of them... absolutely outstanding work and  I imagine  the RAF would love them too..... the first  one is just a spectacular capture ... Take a bow Sir ... these are award winning quality ... you must be thrilled to bits and as proud as Punch ... AWESOME  ....just awesome !

Oh ...and I really love *10th  Pic .... that really looks like a painted sky ...

Fabulous shots, Colin.

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


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.
