Lovely, '266 was believed to have been 'NASA 520' at one time, so you have caught both NASA 520 and 521!

The first shot of the two seems to have more depth of colour to me. I was wondering as attachments won't come out that size and I can see your image on an MoD computer which I can't normally see from a host site.

Are you out there at the moment?

The Kestrel in the first of my two photos is marked up as NASA520,

Full credit must go out to the organisers of this years Cosford Air Show for bringing out the Kestrel & parking it out in the static park with the Harrier airframes at the airfield. It was a great line-up -



Cheers

As the Kestrel is the only bird of prey that can hover Ive always been curious as to why the name was changed to Harrier, anyone know the reason?
