    Wow.
    This is one cool series.
    Must always remain a series just like you are presenting it here!

    Though one may like one photo best out of a whole series, right?
    With me it is 5 ... erm: and 6 ... erm: and 7 :oops: :biggrin:

    Funny thing was that on shots 6 and 7 after taking them I looked up to see just how close they were to where we were standing, almost thought that one of them was going to land right inside the lens hood

    Nice work. Good to see you had some sun for the show. I spent the weekend with Nigel Price and Cuncan Cubitt from Flypast magazine. They are in Canada for some Canadian material.

    Good to see them freshly dropped out the back of the herc, those first 2 a great. Number 6 is nice, seems like a right bundle.

    Excellent series Andy! :thumbup:

    I especially like #7! When they are so high up it's easy to forget those smoking specks are people. When you hear them talking to eachother on the way down or see their faces before they land it adds a lot more realism and amazement to what they do!

    BTW What altitude did they jump from? That's a sharp shot of them leaving the back of the Herc! :thumbup:
