Some lucky plane spotters get a close-up view as the Tornado GR4 roars low overhead.
This picture was inspired by a photographic trip to the low flying area in the Welsh mountains near Cader Idris, known to plane spotters as the Mach Loop. The aircraft in the picture belongs to No 2 Squadron of the RAF, known as Shiny Two and is painted in a special livery commemorating the Squadron's 95 years.
Along with No. 3 Squadron RAF, No. 2 Squadron holds claim to being "the oldest heavier-than-air flying machine squadron in the world". Its traditional Army Co-Operation role is reflected in the "AC" of its title, its motto Hereward (Guardian of the Army), and the symbol of a Wake knot on its crest. Its unofficial nickname is "Shiny Two".
