Just back from the wettest most miserable airshow I have ever been to. The flip side was that when it stopped raining enough for me to risk taking the camera out, the sky was so sodden the F-15 became a very loud cloud generator.

Hope you have had productive weekends.

Wow! Thanks All, makes getting soaked and having aching joints today all seem a bit more worthwhile.

Thanks in particular to mdoubleya, Kevin and Brian for your UA's, those are very much appreciated and of course Pete for the EC.

I will have to put the other couple of hundred shots I have of this aircraft on ICE for a while now!

And to think I was talking to this guy that day. Certainly looks more impressive than he did on my RADAR screen.
What a superb atmospheric capture

Thanks Matt, that means a lot. I certainly had a big smile on my face when I saw it in the viewfinder, despite the conditions.
