The Blades, flying their Extra EA-300s, were perhaps my favourite display of the day. Some of the pilots are ex-Red Arrow pilots, but the team is civilian. The didn’t have the…

The Spanish Air Force’s helicopter display team Patrulla Aspa (Blade Patrol) flying Eurocopter EC120 Colibri (Hummingbird)

I thought Patrulla Aspa’s display was one of the best of the day, incredible manoeuvrability and showmanship. Superb to watch

Avro Vulcan

The last flying Vulcan XH558

The weekend of 5th and 6th of July 2014 saw what could be the last ever Waddington Airshow.

Two Vulcans

The last flying Vulcan, XH558, during what may be its final display at RAF Waddington, shown here with XM607 (which was originally the reserve but later became the lead and only aircraft to be used to bomb Port Stanley airport as part of Operation Black Buck 1 during the Falklands War)

A bit of a mixed bag. Some shots taken during a walk round Mahdia and the small Botanical Zoo.

El Djem

The following are shots from my second visit to El Djem in Tunisia – the second largest amphitheatre in Africa after Carthage.

Blue Doors

Rapidly becoming a cliché amongst travel photographers, particularly when in Tunisia, Morocco and Greece. But I do find these blue doors attractive against the whitewashed walls. In spite of having the grid on in the viewfinder, the horizontals are still slightly out
