    Love the way this is cropped and the background is really dramatic with the heat haze and the sky. Great shot.

  • Thanks for the appreciation and the fave Nigel!

    Excellent Colin. My favourite jet fighter. – Ted

  • Thanks Ted! Used to see loads of these during my formative years – the USAF had three wings of them at Manston, just 11 miles away. They were eventually replaced by Dog-Sabres and Thunderstreaks.
