LOW LEVEL PHOTOGRAPHY - SCOTLAND | SCOTTISH BORDERS | WWW.AV8-IMAGES.COM |
THE PERFECT OFFICE
Looking in to the office of a Tornado GR4 at Low Level in the Scottish Borders. The Aircrew clearly working hard with the Weapon Systems Operator (WSOp) is seen holding a map in jis left hand whilst holding on to the canopy mount with his right! Not a bad day job!
1 SQUADRON LOW LEVEL
The first ever sighting of a 1(F) Squadron Typhoon from RAF Leuchars at low level. This was my most iconc image of 2012, as it made the front cover of Combat Aircraft magazine.

2013 marks my eighth year of low level photography in the United Kingdom. Although movements are much more sparse than when I first started, the joy and exhiliration remains the same when a jet comes into sight hugging the precluding hill. With the Selkirk to Moffat valley a mere 45 minutes from my door step, I tend to focus on the vast array of locations that run through the 22 mile long valley. The Scottish Borders remains the busiest 'play-ground' for our armed forces and with a large range of hills interspersed with broad valleys in which at certain times low level traffic is cleared down to 100ft merely makes it an ideal area to stake out and wait for that low level moment.
