Always a pleasure to see RAF Lakenheath’s 48th Fighter Wing low level in Wales with their F-15s. These C models, callsign GATOR 11-14, were from the famed 493rd FS ‘The Grim Reapers’. Interesting to note the Sniper Pod on the lead jet.
These two RAF Typhoons were a fantastic treat on this late summer visit to the loop. Great to see them in such close formation through the North Wales low fly structure.

A pair of 1st Squadron F-16s from the Belgian Air Force paid us a visit at Lake Vyrnwy near the Mach Loop on their way to RIAT 2017. Great to see these guys down at low level.
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.
Two B-1B Lancers thunder out of RAF Fairford to return back to Ellsworth AFB in the U.S. after a few weeks on UK soil.
Fortunately they switched runways halfway through the morning which meant they were launching towards my shooting location.
Nothing overloads the senses like a B-1 in full burner. Aviation in all it’s wondrous glory.
A Kalitta Air Boeing 747 (C/S CKS9457) freighter N741CK makes an early morning arrival into RAF Fairford to transport parts and supplies back to the U.S. after Baltops 2017.
Watch out for the deer!
