I remember having some editing fun with this plane:

super sconic01 - SR-71 Blackbird

From the above to this below:

Certainly not as much fun as Roger Dean had:

Here's a very digestive view of a Northern lake. At least, I for one
think it looks like a stomach . . .

A sight you seldom see: an airplane crossing the road.

And this one is hard to make out, perhaps. I had to shoot real quick,
then crop and enlarge the result, so it's not too well defined. It's a
high-flying twin jet escorted by three much smaller aircraft (actually
5, but only 3 were close enough to appear in this shot). The small
aircraft look to me like F-18 or CF-18 fighters. My guess: either a
VIP with a military escort, or a military tanker and several fighters
ready to refuel in flight.

Cool! Good catch!

Until about two weeks ago I'd never heard of this aircraft. Then,
shortly after we passed Liverpool, England, on a drive to the Hereford
region, we stopped for a picnic and this fella flew by overhead on
approach to John Lennon airport. I took three pix in a desperate rush;
none is really any good, but this one gives you the idea. As you can
see he has a name: the Beluga.

Well-named!!

That's so awesome looking! A flying whale! I wish my dad was still
alive. He was an advanced design aeronautical engineer his entire
working lifetime. I know he'd have some choice comments re. the Beluga.

Here's the first of two kinda scary shots of an RAF Hercules. We were
taking  short break at the Kirkstane Pass in the Lake District of
England when this fella roared by at no more than 200AGL. I had the
camera out to take scenery shots and I heard him coming.

Here's the second. We thought for a moment that he was
crashing--well, what else could you think? But after he disappeared
below the hills and there was no sign of a disaster we realized what
was happening, and the barmaid at the pub confirmed it: the RAF uses
the Kirkstane Pass as part of its low-level training route. Not only
Hercs but Tornado jet fighters and all sorts of other aircraft go
unexpectedly roaring by at extremely low level at all hours. (Other
air forces visiting Britain use this route as well.)

Reminds me a bit of the movie "633 Squadron". I believe that was
filmed at Loch Morar.

Watched the Lancaster bomber depart from Hamilton's Mount Hope Airport for England on tv this morning. The plane is 69 years old, and will be flying in various airshows around Europe for the summer, along with the other Lancaster...where that one lives I don't know but I expect it's in the UK somewhere.

I saw a Lancaster fly past a full moon back in the early '40s - as I wasn't alone at the time, I know for sure it was not a dream.

Was that yesterday? That should be quite the trip. I've walked under
the bomber at the airport - it's hard to believe how big it is - but
never managed to get there to watch one of the weekly fly-bys.

It's supposed to have gone at 10.30 this morning and of course I was in here doing email and forgot all about it.

The closest I've been to one is the stationary plane in Jackson Park Windsor - now that they've painted it in non-wartime colours I feel it isn't the same one at all! At least the one at Mount Hope is still painted 'right' !!

One of my favourite memories of this summer's trip to the UK. The
town of Ingleton (on the western edge of the Yorkshire moors, if you
wanna look it up) had a 1940s weekend going on. There in the parking
lot was a real WWII Supermarine Spitfire. For 5 pounds I got to sit in
the cockpit and have pix taken on my own camera. Just try and stop me,
said I! But I couldn't close the canopy because at 6 feet I'm too
tall.

New engine in the Lanc courtesy the RAF - so she's up and running again. I just pray she gets home ok.

What a great experience (and photo)! Love the hat :-)

Great time for you Steve! My SIL had a trip around in one for his birthday last March - 7th Heaven!

Wow. Never has so much been owed by so many to such short people.
