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. :(

Yep the access is much better than normal airshows and yes I will remember the SHARS going up the ramp for a very long time :lol:
