‘I’m with stupid’

Got this photo more by luck than skill and when it was cleared by the MOD ,I think they knew that it would be a good advert for them and the feedback is 95% positive.
A RAF Tornado navigator decided to pull a prank on plane photographers when they were flying through Snowdonia, Wales by flashing a card reading ‘I’m with stupid’ with an arrow pointing at the pilot.

Low Flying in the Mach Loop North Wales.

Coming from Aberaeron on the west coast of Wales we get quite a lot of military jets doing their thing as we have bombing range in the south and west and the mountains all over. And when I see them I thought that the only way to photograph them would be from another plane (air to air), but I was wrong, just by chants I found some outstanding photography. But a group of aviation photographers and there they were doing it just up the road from me well about 1 hours drive and the rest is history.

Wootton Bassett.

As always I have bean watching the repatriated fallen coming home via Wooton Bassett and like most of use it was becoming routine to see it and was forgetting what it was all about and I just thought that if I don’t do anything now the war in Afghanistan will be over and all of this will be history.
I did four trips down the M4 and I am glad I have done it. Like all of my photography , it is not until you get up and do it and experience what you are photographing that you get the satisfaction of doing something that will be capture for ever.
