Birthday snaps

Seen as it's still April and I was digging through some shots I had loaded on Photobucket, I thought these might be of interest to some of you folks. Happy 90th and all that...
















I got loads more if you like...

Hi Tim
Have you got one of a truly "Multi-Role" ac such as Nimrod, rather than the regular Air Clues selection, which always featured at least 3 shots of Yawnado

It says "O Bandeirante 3" - seems it refers to a similarly-named Spitfire flown by 111 during WWII

They look almost good enough for the RAF to use in an anniversary book.

good one! Actually I was thinking more like maybe they're too good (having seen the book)?! I'd say it was a disappointment but actually it was pretty-much as I expected to be...


Plotfinder Yep, they're all my photographs from my collection, taken myself.

Tim,

As an aerial photographer myself I must say " Good Stuff " !

I couldn't help laughing at the shot of Tornado & Nimrod - wasn't there an incident on exercise years ago, just after the Falklands when the Aim-9L was flavour of the month, when a couple of Tornado's forgot about that and overshot the Nimrod, only to be lined up & theoretically shot down ?!
