Great shot Leon! Especially the head on look.
I see them fly over my way quite a bit and I often drive past Richmond RAAF base. They sometimes do drills flying low and slow in a loop around the area doing drop off drills. Its such an amazing looking jet. So huge.
I haven't seen one take off yet. I hope to drive past one time one is taking off.
Great pics Leon....
I love how these planes seem to just hang up there.
Reminds me of a quote from "Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy" I think when describing those Ginormous spaceships that obliterated the Earth.
"They hung in the sky the same way that bricks don't".....or something like that.

Good to see you finally got your shots of the C-17, nice work. We are set to have six of these aircraft...one alone takes up a lot of space.

Been in that exact aircraft a number of times while in the RAAF.
Ya lucky buggers, that would be so good.
