Going, going, gone

Just before I finished work today, Bobbi from Air Traffic let us know that a Tornado had booked a number of low approaches at Kirkwall for around 1820 local.  It was too good a chance to miss as usually Tornadoes fly past so fast, I miss the opportunity of a picture.  Something like this one as it did a high speed fly past prior to the approaches

L1050645

As luck would have it the next approaches were gear down so a lot better

L1050646

L1050653

L1050649

And all to soon it was time to say goodbye

L1050660

L1050656

Worth a bit of indigestion but also made my Mrs happy as she is from Forres which is right next to RAF Kinloss and not far from RAF Lossie so since she moved to Orkney she misses the sound of the Tornadoes.

As always, thanks for reading

All the best

Neil 😉
