The TimeLine Harrier and Jaguar nightshoot
238 Squadron / 1 SoTT
RAF Cosford

April 19, 2017
Sea Harrier and Harrier side by side.....
 

The third TLE night shoot now added some Bae Systems Harriers and a Sea Harrier to join some SEPECAT Jaguars. Neil Cave (TimeLine Events) once again got together with 238 Squadron and 1 SoTT at RAF Cosford to raise hopefully another £5,000 for the RAF Benevolent Fund charity. The weather for this event was sometimes dull so sunset shots were not possible. Once again Neil set up lighting and his smoke generators for some extraordinary scenes with his re-enactors.

Special thanks must go to the 238 pilots and ground crew who removed tags and intake covers to enhance the images.
