Mach Loop-5978

Apologies (again!) despite my best intentions I keep falling behind.
I went to Wales on Monday, the Mach Loop is a circuit through a series of Welsh valleys where the UK military (and other 'guests' sometimes) practice low flying. There are a few places where you can trek up the side of the valley and get high enough to look down on the aircraft as they fly through.
There's no guarantee they will fly on any particular day, but when they do it's quite amazing.
This is a Hawk, same as the Red Arrows use.
Well, this is really cool.

What an excellent shot. We lived at RAF Valley many years ago and the Red Arrows used to come there to use the Hawks from Valley at the time if any of their aircraft were U/S. They also came to Cyprus when we were there to practice their aerobatics because the weather was much better than the UK winter, ha ha.

@onewing I guess you saw a few changes (and different aircraft) over the years then!

Great shot of an interesting aircraft. I keep falling behind as well. Sure we will make the 365 eventually!

@guymundo Yes just a few changes and we have got photos of our girls in various aircraft over the years too. We have got them in the pilots seat of a Lancaster, a Vulcan a Red Arrows Hawk and a Phantom. Always handy knowing the pilots.
