Well done Reg with the new thread.

Didn't we always stick to the image size rules?

Here's to the next million.

We understand you Pop.

Coo page one, what a lot of space !!!

I'm sure we all understand and appreciate the Mod's decision and thank them for allowing Silhouette Challenge to grow to the size it did, but equally, I think that it was a very popular attraction for the Forum judging by the number of views it achieved!

That said, it would be nice if the old thread could be "Stickyfied" for a while, so that lurkerrs can still browse it, also, so that it can be referred to when checking against Mel's list to verify information. This is not so easy with the old "What Cockpit" threads (I-III) now they're deep in the Archives, seems like only recently that they disappeared from the tabbed listings!

Here's to the next million!!!

Well done for kicking it off Reg ; now give us one of your famous predictions for the arrival of Page 100 !!

Good Night, Afternoon and Morning to all Silhouetters and Lurkers worldwide. Long live Silhouette Challenge II

Morning Reg.

It's an Omani Air Force Jaguar photographed at Muscat, Oman.

All were flown by RAF or ex-RAF pilots. There were no low flying rules, so hooliganism was always the order of the day.

Google U-tube videos for Omani low flying Jaguars.
