Leuchars Airshow Pics

Quite a few pics out there on the different forums of Leuchars Pics,but I thought some of you may be impressed with this thread in particular.

There is an amazing shot of a 14Sqn Tonka taken during the airfield attack that deserves wider publicity.And we all know you fast jet jockeys love seeing yourselves in action

Well done that man... Come on - be honest... How many were cropped or do you have super human control over the Camera DTs?

Some spectacular work there. Keep it up.

Thanks Conan ... I'll pass your comments onto my good colleague Mike Hall who took the fantastic 14 Sqn Tornado photo at the Leuchars Airshow.

Top picture taking. I loved the GR4 against the smoke background, but not as much as I loved seeing the Mighty F4. Am I showing my age? Over to you, Tarnished, for a cruel and witty put-down.

As an Army helicopter pilot many moons ago I used to be an FAC. I loved the F4 because I could see it 30 miles away because of the great black trail it left over the sky. Made controlling them very very easy!!! Fantastic photographs.

Max B.....

You know me too well.

25 Signs That You're Getting Old
You're asleep, but others worry that you're dead.
Your back goes out more often than you do.
You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
You buy a compass for the dash of your car/truck.
You're proud of your lawn mower.
Your best friend is dating someone half their age, and isn't breaking any laws.
Your arms are almost too short to read the newspaper.
You sing along with the elevator music.
You would rather go to work than stay home sick.
You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
People call at 9:00 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"
You answer a question with, "Because I said so."
You send money to PBS.
The end of your tie doesn't come anywhere near the top of your pants.
You take a metal detector to the beach.
You know what the word "equity" means.
You can't remember the last time you laid on the floor to watch television.
Your ears are hairier than your head.
You talk about "good grass" and you're referring to someone's lawn.
You get into a heated argument about pension plans.
You got cable for The Weather Channel.
You can go bowling without drinking.
You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
You find yourself smiling at this list.

But you know my favourite.... you are only as old as the woman you feel.

It's true, I did get into a heated discussion about a pension plan just the other day. You could also add to the list catching yourself admiring a nice cardigan at Marks and Spencers. Or so someone told me....

Inspired by the Tornado pic, went right out and bought an entire box of BB's.

For my air rifle.
