Fly Navy 100


BAE Harrier GR9 of the Royal Navy Strike Wing on the flight deck of HMS Illustrious in Liverpool for the RNAS 100 celebration.  I quite like the seaman nonchalantly guarding the mortars against the Mersey Pirates in the bottom right hand corner.

Yes, I spotted him, too. At least he has a gun to fend off any invaders - assuming that he has bullets for it. A great capture, Les.
Les Auld: Probably hasn't got any bullets due to cutbacks Alan, thanks for the comment.

Great shot..well recorded Les.My daughter is there today.
Les Auld: I hope she enjoyed it Ron, plenty to see. Thanks for the comment.
Excellent detail shot Les. years ago, when I worked in London, a Harrier landed and took of near where I worked one day and I got to see it. Silly idiot, I didn't do photography as hobby in those days.
Les Auld: The things you miss Brian, Thanks for the comment.
Oh wow - what a great opportunity... This doesn't come around all too often.
Les Auld: You have to grab them when they do Jen, thanks for the comment.

Given the reputation of Mersey Pirates I would recommend he steps up his vigilance ;o) Like the shot of the plane - the foreshortening makes it look like it is nestling against the side.
Les Auld: Probably looking out for pirate clampers with big yellow ship sized boots. Thanks for the comment Mike.
