Default Lightnings, Buccaneers, Hunters ......

My first time at Bruntingthorpe for a Cold War Jets open day .....

























The collection of cold war jets continues to grow with the arrival of these two ...





By the next Cold War Jets open day in August both XX900 and XS235 should should have been repainted, if the weather plays ball.

My next Lightning shoot should be in a couple of weeks at Cranfield. Hopefully it will happen this time, now the work on the electric starters is nearing completion on the T.5

Great photos, and I particularly like the Comet head-on shot

Oh, and the Beech 18!

Wonderful photographs

There's a quality to the Lightning pics 2 & 3 and the 3 Buccaneer pics that is almost surreal.......and that Beech

I've been down too shoot the T.5 at Cranfield since last year, but due to technical problems they've never happened. Here's hopping Russell has more luck this year
