Low level F-15C ‘Grim Reapers’ – Mach Loop – August 2017

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.

Legendary low level C-17 Globemaster in the Mach Loop – 7th July 2017

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.

Lakenheath’s Grim Reaper F-15Cs 493rd FS low level in Wales – 7th July 2017

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.

x2 B-1B Lancers (MYTEE12 & 13) launch from RAF Fairford 20th June 2017

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.
