To say it was a chance shot would be an understatement. I was closing down for the day, walking away from the field as the light conditions were fading fast, goodness knows why I turned to watch the aircraft doing a cross field run, put my bag down and started to shoot (Canon 5D, Canon EF 400mm IS USM lens). Shot off about 7 frames as the star burst exploded. The aircraft was operated by Naturelink (now absorbed into National Airways Corporation), was modified with the ECM (electronic counter measures) and was operating in Africa.
