I visited RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire this afternoon. The weather was very poor and made photogaphy very difficult as in even 800 ISO only gave a max shutter speed of 1/250th. http://www.aircraftinaction.co.uk/Img_0039a.jpg http://www.aircraftinaction.co.uk/Decl3.jpg http://www.aircraftinaction.co.uk/Decl1.jpg http://www.aircraftinaction.co.uk/DEcl2.jpg http://www.aircraftinaction.co.uk/Decl4.jpg http://www.aircraftinaction.co.uk/Decl5.jpg

Woops sorry guys failed to spot the 'Commercial Aviation' title :( Only saw Trip Reports. If someone could move this to the correct section then I would be very grateful. Thanks :)

I watched them do this at Lossie a couple of years ago. Practice engine failure with wings swept back approach! One engine on afterburner to give go round power. Very spectacular! mmitch.

Praise the Lord there's landing lights - those pictures are actually quite nice. Special too, considering the circumstances.
