    These are totally awesome photo's. Being from a military background I always find any jets cool. Jello/aka Dave on the other hands works on them everyday so it's no biggy for him..

    Very nice captures and series!

    Superb plane, I recall being fascinated with these following the Falklands conflict, sad to see them go.

    Great plane shots as always, I think my fav is the first of the second set. #10 was pretty funny though

    Very cool, sure wish I was there. You can't beat events like this for great access. I'm sure it will be a memory that will last a life time.

    Great shots! :thumbup:

    I've been facinated with the history of the Harrier from the P1127 Kestrel to the GR7 although I never really took much fancy to the Sea Harrier (RAF Bias!)

    Sad to see it go, however. :(
