Cosford airshow 2013 (pic heavy)

Post by shaggy22 »

This is the RAF's first major airshow of the season, & again we were blessed with very un-British, glorious weather.The only bad thing was the traffic on the M54 and surrounding roads, took some people 5 hours + to get in. The sun was unfortunately above & in front of the crowd-line making photography a little tricky, anyway enough excuses.

This guy is insane, he landed it on a 35ft moving trailer behind a 4x4, and then took off from it.

The Chinook was a close second to the Lynx, very aggressively flown :D

Do we recognise the weapons operator, it's none other than Cpt Wales, otherwise known as Prince Harry.

This was easily the most surreal moment of the day. The Vulcan being flanked by the RV8TORS, very strange.
