Cheers , yes I struggled big time , weather was really quite nice until just before the displays then the clouds rolled in , was a great display to see and hear and I feel quite lucky as very few have seen it over here.

It would be a killer shot if it was just a bit sharper. How does the original look?

Hi Frank
original Is soft , this image has no sharpening applied so I may add some but it will never be a killer shot as it looks too soft , I had a nightmare shooting yesterday for some reason , all sorts of problems particularly when the sun went . I'm going for another couple of days there but that was the first time the Raptor has been here and probably the only time I will see one as it goes home today .

I agree , it was simply a fantastic disply , the typhoon went before the raptor and you cant compare as they are very differnt types of display the Typhoon does a lot of power moves whereas the raptors display is more like the russian Mig 29ovt , high manouvreability stuff , all enjoyable but differnt , the raptor set off the most car alarms but the Typhoon made more babies cry:lol:
