We were treated to a number of passes of this new T-6 in the build up to RIAT 2017 in the North Wales low fly system. Great to try out a new spot to film from as well.
We had two unbelievable passes of the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III through the Mach Loop in Wales on July 7th. I’ve seen some sights through here, but this was a special one.
This is the biggest aircraft ever to do the loop, a record that will be hard to beat. This particular aircraft is from Charleston AFB in South Carolina.
The 493rd Fighter Squadron, the Grim Reapers, paid us a visit on the 7th July in the Mach loop with their F-15Cs. These guys really are impressive at low level, and this was the first time I managed to capture them in The Mach Loop.
It was a busy day for bombers on June 9th at RAF Fairford, and was the first time I’d seen (and filmed) all three of Global Strike Command’s heavy bombers on the same day.
These two aircraft were flown from Whiteman AFB, Missouri, visited a bombing range in the UK before recovering into Fairford. These aircraft were 82-1068 Spirit Of New York (MYTEE51) and 88-0329 Spirit Of Missouri (MYTEE52).
The famed B-2 Spirit ‘Stealth Bomber’ entered service in 1997 and they still look absolutely cutting edge to my eyes, despite the fact that they celebrate 20 years in service this year. Happy birthday B-2.
We were treated to a 6 passes by these Tornado GR4s from RAF Marham on April 21st. Quite rare to see three together in a low level sortie, it was difficult to know which one to pan with!
A single Tornado GR4, ZD713 callsign MRM18, paid us a visit on Bwlch Spur on April 10th 2017.
A graceful pass of an A400M Atlas from RAF Brize Norton through the Bwlch in spring 2017. Lovely seeing these becoming a regular sight in North Wales.
