Nice!

 

Can't wait until next week - just hope the forecast is good for Tuesday as otherwise they've said they'll bring it forward to Monday.. but I can't take Monday off!

Wow, what a day (ignoring the 5.5hr journey to get there and (still on the) 3.5hr journey home :( ) - just phenomenal!. Goosebumps all afternoon. Will post pics once I'm home and sorted through 300 or so! Got some absolute crackers :)

Finally got around to uploading the best of my pictures from last week's amazing day!

 

A friend of mine lent me his 70-300mm lens but it wouldn't auto-focus with my camera... so these were all manually focussed. I'm pretty chuffed with some of them I have to say :thumbsup:

 

Anyway, I'll let the photos do the talking....

This guy aborted take off and went off to look for a man with a spanner. He then went up last once the ground crew had fixed him :)

Some fantastic picture there Paul, looks like it was well worth the journey and traffic jams.

 

As an aside, I took the pictures below at Goodwood on 14th August 2014 (last year), I believe this was also part of the filming for the event last week, over a year later.
