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.

x2 B-2A (MYTEE51 & 52) recover into RAF Fairford 9th July 2017

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.
