Eurofighter Typhoon ZK333
Cosford Airshow 2012
Spookily I have just been watching a documentay on this plane on Discovery Channel 🙂
Wow – thats a cracking shot Ian – superb 🙂
very cool mate
Very sleek looking aircraft.
awesome shot – very cool!
Yep, you certainly know how to get a shot of a plane..Brilliant.
This thing is going to have to prove itself before I believe it was worth scrapping the Harrier for..
By gum, that’s a belting shot mate!
~ Commented with Flickr Studio for iPad.
I like the lighting too. Great action shot!
this is the biz Ian !
Awesome image buddy, One of your best!!
lovely light in this.
Wow – such a great catch!!! The dark sky really adds to the capture
Great shot Ian , really caught the power of those engines…….
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/nondesigner] as far as proving itself against the harrier , it doesnt have to ….the harrier as good as it was is an aircraft from a bygone age and the Typhoon is the future it may not have vertical takeoff capabilities but it can fly incredibly slowly and is super-manouverable …all this with an incredible Mach 2 top speed (that they admit to) ….like or not the Typhoon would have an Harrier for breakfast. Its like comparing a Harrier with a Meteor, the comparison just doesnt stand up.
Stunning capture, love the positioning of the aircraft, the artistry in the sky, and the glow of the after burners. Spot on.
It is a shame about Harriers though.
Any good? Doc on Bomber Command tomorrow night.

Many thanks chaps!
my goodness, just beautiful. the upward curve adding hope, inspiration and that ever so slight touch of gravity to the vibe. lovely work here Ian.
I agree Ian tis a really big shame about the Harriers.
Your capture is supersonic!
Cracking shot, good airshow? Dry?
Cheers Ang. You have an aviator’s eye.
Thanks Mark! Supersonic. I can’t hear that word without thinking of Little and Large.
Thanks John. Mostly dry. Paul and me huddled under our raincoats at one point, the cameras stashed under a bivi sack, while all around us everyone else was sat smiling smugly at us from under their umbrellas. But yeah, good show. This was one of the highlights, if for the noise alone.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/pasujoba44] still think it was an unnecessary extravagant use of defense spending, it would have made more sense to keep the aircraft carriers and equip our soldiers properly !
Sweet hot Ian! Kind of looks like some thing out of a video game, and I mean that in a good way. I was just reading that England has had one of the wettest June’s on record. I can sympathize with you coming from Portland Oregon, we don’t tan, we rust. We say summer doesn’t start until July 5th because it always seems to rain until the day after Independence Day.
Very powerful shot!
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/maycontaintracesofnuts] slightly crossed lol, but it looked like it was heading for the sun …
brilliant photo ian, great lighting
Awesome shot. Great capture, afterburners and all.
It is a nice looking plane Ian…. I’d have mistaken this for HDR, but I know you don’t do those…. that Arcsoft thingy of yours again. Whatever, its a great piece of work.
what a machine, awesome
Awesome shot Ian – looks like a book cover 🙂
Really great detail – I’m not very good at taking photos of moving targets, like planes! :~}
Absolutely beautiful Ian!!!
Very nice mate, love the angle and the lighting, looks great against that sky.
Very dynamic feel to this shot.
This is cool! Or should I say, very hot!
yeah to equiping the soldiers properly and keeping the carriers but they need this aircraft too ! …….we are beginning to look like the forces did before the second world war …underequipped with old gear ! Virtually the only decent kit we have is the modern tanks but not enough of them , the Tornado and the Typhoon ,a few subs and an handful of modern destroyers !
I suspect that whilst good for policing small conflicts that carriers may be redundant if something big kicks off …the next big war will be very different from the last one .
Stunning shot Ian!
Congratulations on your Creative Engineering As Art Frame!
