After setting off at 2300 on Tuesday night we headed north up the A1 up to Lossie - we arrived in the local area at 0630 then grabbed some Breakfast and waited for the first launches
Superb weather both days ! and even a runway change so they finnished the day using the cross runway (very nice)

Hope you like - enjoy

Some really excellent shots there, '712 with the burners lit is awsome.!

Love Scotland, you've got some brilliant photo's there...

You must've been shattered after that, totally worth it though..

Thanks very much guys for all your comments they mean alot specially after a period of problem after problem with my Canon 40D (RIP) always a pleasure to post some images which i really enjoyed taking them and and more than worth losing a nights sleep!!!!!

I would agree that Lossie is one of the best airfields in terms of viewing and photography out there - i would recommend it to anyone we always do 2 days at Lossie and 2 days at Leuchars show inc the enthusiast day

All taken with the new Canon 50D 300mm 2.8 or 70-200mm IS 2.8

Thanks again - on me "hols" tomorrow but will post a couple of night flying images later.

Another top set Rick. Unusual in that every jet seems to have 2 working afterburners! Bring on those Leuchars shots now.
