Image of the Week: RAF Beech King Air Over Wales

This week’s Image of the Week (featured on page 3 of Flight International), is taken by AirSpace user Michael Leek. His photo depicts a RAF Beech King Air B200.

He writes of his photo:

It was taken on Thursday 25 February at the Cader Idris pass in mid Wales (part of the Mach Loop). She came out of the low cloud and instead of climbing up to get clear of the weather she dropped down into the pass. She made two complete circuits of the Loop. I was in mid Wales for two days – specifically to photograph whatever aircraft came through on low level sorties and, as you can see, the weather was not the best – the snow was knee deep in places! Capturing a King Air is unusual as these are rarely seen low level. The vast majority of my aviation photography is low level; in Wales, north west England and in Scotland, though the latter is more hit-and-miss because north of the central belt practically the whole country is a low flying area!
