Man, what memories spring from my mind! I used to fly one of these from Home Base, Squadron Red, Shelter B-1. My lady was called MATCHB-0X.

Good picture Smile

A great shot full of power and a sort of menace! I love the heat haze the engines have produced!

Fine shot indeed. I remember cycling past Leuchers in 1968 when two of these took off - very noisy and very exciting. I'm jealous of pablophotographer! Must have been some ride.

Did realise these were still flying Chris, good timing and heat haze behind them
Certainly noise when they took off

Pity they're not allowed to fly over here. Great shot with the heat haze.
