I used to go climbing in Wales & it was really sureal when jets came down the valley and were lower than we were on top of a climb!

I wonder what the focal length of the lens was!

Dunno but the guy on the balcony could have got a pretty cool picture of the pilots eyes :). Nice picture.

Cool photo,thanks


I've done that, we use to use a place called Forest Coal Pit as a base. Brilliant days my early teens, but I certainly remember the fighters screaming past.

Hope no-one was on the 'graveyard' shift when that 'plane shot by.

I've had the same thing happen in the Lake District, walking along a hillside and seen a jet fly by below.

I once nearly jump out of my skin when an Apache rose up in front of me - a very frightening aircraft

I was thinking that as well, quite a long lens, hence the compression, great photo though.

Could be upsetting to relatives of those killed in the 'two towers' attacks, though. Or the Hindenburg disaster.

The 'guy' standing looking into the pilots eyes is a gal. Two pieces of evidence sha's wearing a skirt and the shape of her chest. Unless, of course, .....;-))

I was driving up to Centre Parcs at Penrith a few years back and nearly crashed the car when quite possibly the fattest helicopter I have ever seen, admittedly I haven't seen THAT many, suddenly shot up from the valley I was driving along the wall of!

Wish I had my camera that day!
