RAF picture special – beauty and the beast

Our Image of the Day blog today carries a great image of a Royal Air Force formation of nine Eurofighter Typhoons flying overhead the stunning Lincolnshire landscape. Yes, that statement does involve some mild topographical sarcasm, but as I was born in the UK’s potentially flattest county I reckon I can get away with it.

I thought I’d continue our reference to the RAF’s annual photographic competition winners with my own two top picks, intentionally made to highlight the service’s combat pedigree spanning the last seven decades.

First up is beautiful Hawker Hurricane IIC LF363 from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF), captured close-up seconds before passing above Buckingham Palace during Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations earlier this year.

Apologies to photographer SAC Daniel Herrick for making a slight crop to the top of his image, but as I’m guessing he took the shot from the back of the BBMF’s Lancaster bomber I’m sure he’ll still have a great big grin on his face anyway.

Scroll forward a bit, and SAC Tim Laurence’s shot called ‘Beast of Kandahar’ provides a suitably menacing angle of a Panavia Tornado GR4 deployed in Afghanistan.

    This may not be the best choice for everyone, but if your friends and family
    understand how much the procedure would mean
    to you, they may be able to help out at least a little
    bit. And with summer fast approaching, the most effective time to have anti-cellulite treatments is now.
    Gone are the days where you had to surrender to the hands of fate on the premise of a Genetic makeup.

    She said it wasn’t necessary at all and that my teeth
    were in great shape. When young men develop best associations with a Tampa dental Practician from an early age; they are far more potential to keep up healthy
    dental habits in whole life. Keep in mind this isn’t an
    all-inclusive list as colleges change curriculum often and many of them are adding crime scene and forensic investigation degrees
    every year.
