Airbus A400M Grizzly making her way back to the static line after a breath taking display of agility and manoeuvrability. Four of the western worlds most powerful turbo prop engines – 11,000shp each, contra rotating their 8 bladed propellers

RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire

Sony DSC-HX1

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    DAMN Barrie – thats a great shot of the A400M!! i have seen friends’ pixs of it but never had a chance to see it meself!! maybe this time around in Andalucia I’ll see if I can get a looksee!! i’m envious!!

  • Grizzly 1 was retired at the end of last year and I believe it is to go on public display … not sure where yet. MSN 3 has been put in to storage so that’s 2 test frames out of circulation. On the plus side two have now been delivered and are in service, sadly in France so quite a way from Southern Spain.
