(For all these shots I used a Canon EOS 5D Mk III with the following lenses;
Canon EF 400mm f2.8 L IS Mk II, Canon EF 300mm f2.8 L with and without a x1.4 extender Mk III and a Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS)


Wednesday November 23, 2016 A beautiful cloudless day in the Lakes and the mountains were snow cappped. Animal Flight, four F-15E Strike Eagles, two of which were high, were followed by five Tucanos and my first low level sighting of the very large A400M Atlas C.1.

Wednesday November 2, 2016 A day of shooting the beautiful backdrop of Cadir Idris with some occasional passes from some very nice jets. They were all taking the corner high and wide probably due to the low winter sun in the face.

Thursday September 22, 2016 It was another quiet day in the Loop with four Hawk T.2s but for the big bonus of two passes from a BAC 167 Strikemaster.
Left to right: BAC 167 Strikemaster Mk.82A (G-SOAF) formally of the Sultan of Oman's Air Force. No.425 was the last Strikemaster built, it was delivered to the SOAF in 1984 and remained in service until 1999, returning to the UK in 2004 after a period as an instructional airframe. It is now operated by North Wales Military Aviation Service and flown by Director and pilot Mark Petrie.

Col Novotny was first heard on the radio; "Eagle 21 we are a flight of fox one five echoes entering the Mach' Loop from the south east for two circuits at 500 feet and 500 mph. After his flight he wrote on the 48FW Facebook page; "My kind of flying weather! Too bad it was my last flight". Later he added; "Cad' West was packed. Thank you for the great turnout on my final sortie in the UK. I was in 'Eagle 21' flying 311 my flagship, hope you got some great pictures".

Tuesday July 5, 2016 Back at the Loop starting on Cad' East, but as the only pass of a Tornado GR.4 was almost impossible to catch due to the strong wind I moved across to a new location (for me) on the sheltered west side of the Loop where I had (at a distance) two passes from an uncoded and unmarked Tornado GR.4.

Tuesday June 21, 2016 Up in the Lakes for the first time in quite a while, chose the west side due to cloudy start to the day. Tucanos, a selection of Hawks, a C-130 and two pairs of F-15E Strike Eagles was a great reward.

Tuesday April 26, 2016 This will go down in history as one of the most epic days for low level photography by those who went to the Loop today. It was a day of extreme highs and lows, literally. With rumours abound I was not actually expecting anything out of the ordinary, how wrong I was. On my own all morning I was surprised at 10:15 by a 41(TES) Squadron Tornado GR.4 which had not been heard on my scanner prior to it racing around the corner at the end of my valley. Shortly after is passed it pulled up out of low level calling 'Rebel 84' RTB Coningsby.

There was a rumour or rather a hope that Belgian Air Force F-16s deployed to RAF Marham and hosted by 9 Squadron might go low level. In reality they had come over for a CAS (combat air support) exercise but poor weather on the east coast had put an end to the day's primary plans. However just after 12:30 on the scanner in a distinctly French/Belgian accent was 'Sting Flight' calling they were in the 'Lichfield Corridor'. They were requesting LFA7 'Mach Loop at 500 feet, game on! However the three-ship of F-16s appeared at 500 feet at least over the tops of the hills and they were not in the Loop's valleys at all. After a few tight circuits over my head they were soon calling RTB Marham.

The rest of the day continued with the succession of snow squalls during which each time completely closed the valley down, you could not even see across the road. As soon as they came they passed over and I was back in the sun, but it was still cold and windy. Not long a after the most severe snow storm of the day and at around 16:30 came the most extraordinary comm's on the scanner that I have heard in the Loop, when the lead pilot 48th FW Commander Col Robert Novotny using callsign 'Rage 21' was reporting their intentions with; "Rage 21 flight, we are a mixed formation of two fox one five echos, two fox twenty twos and one fox one five charlie entering Low Fly Area 7 over Bala Lake north to south for 20 minutes, 500 feet, 500 knots". 'Rage 21' and 22 were followed by 'Mongol Flight' and then 'Sweep' these are all 48 FW callsigns. I saw them pass north to south in the distance and got ready. The first F-15E Strike Eagle appeared around the corner four minutes later, nice and low (I had quickly climbed my hill to gain some advantage because they had also indicated they would by flying at 500 feet AGL). Then appeared the first F-22A Raptor, it was high, too high to be land-locked. My heart sunk but there was still one more, I turned and a second F-15 this time a single seat 'C' model, it was low and I fired off some shots but was anxious to see the second F-22A. When it appeared seconds later it was lower than the first. As I followed it I could see it would be low enough for some decent shots with the ground in the background and I started filling the camera's memory buffer. The last F-15E passed and some good shots were captured. I was on a high, I have never seen a Raptor shot taken at low level from a hillside, and no one really believed (many photographers were wishing for one though) that the 95th Fighter Squadron from Tyndall AFB in Florida, would take a break from their air combat training with 48FW at RAF Lakenheath where they have been based for the last two weeks.

The Raptors pulled out of low level shortly after their single pass and were soon on their way home with the F-15s close behind. However the show had not ended 'Rage 23' now called up some minutes later it was flying straight and level like a bullet and not following the contours of the valley and no 'low level' shots could be taken as it almost flew over my head.

It was not after 17:00 there was nothing on the scanner so I decided to pack up my kit very satisfied with those extraordinary shots, when flashing passed the end of the valley in the distance were two grey jets which left very little noise behind them. I unpacked my camera and waited not expecting them to return, after all they had passed the end of my valley and were gone. Then suddenly without warning one F-16 and then another turned the corner towards me. Yes they were Belgian and were nice and low. The heart was racing once again and three minutes later I was shooting the pair one more time, soon after they called 'Sting Flight' pulling out of low level and RTB Marham.

What a day, yes there were many photographers in the Loop all with their own shots, but I was the only person at my location shooting still images and I am very happy with the unique image I have.

It transpires that 48FW planned the mixed formation for air to air photographs which now appear on their website, curiously the shots include an RAF Typhoon FGR.4 (ZJ946) which has been stripped of its squadron markings due to a recent decision for all Typhoons to follow suit. The 48FW public affairs described the trip to the Loop as; "enabling them to integrate and practice manoeuvres in an austere environment much different from their home in the 'sunshine state' [Florida]".

"LFA 20 Tango active" on NATO low level frequency and 'Marham 32' passes over the Loch at 100 feet AGL.
Wednesday February 24, 2016 Today there were three Tactical Training Area (TTA) slots for operational low flying (OLF) showing on the timetable for low flying area LFA20(T) in the Scottish borders with times booked of; 10:15-11:00, 11:30-12:30 and 13:00-14:15. With five minutes left of the final TTA slot 'Marham 32' appeared at the end of the long valley flying a Tornado GR.4 at 100 feet above ground level (AGL). A Hawk T.2 passed through some minutes earlier at 500 feet AGL the allowed minmum when the TTA is active.
