Covid lockdown and the cancellation of all airshows in 2020 (and most in 2021) left me needing an aviation fix. I gambled on the Mach Loop being quiet, and went to Valley, which turned out to be mixed fortunes, with the USAF and RAF putting in a fairly good ‘show’ at the loop for once.
Valley was busy with multiple launches and recoveries, and a bonus new aircraft for me, with 2x Shadow R1’s in different paint shemes calling in for practice approaches. I moved around a bit and took images from three different locations for a bit of variety. Nice to get a couple of waves from the Instructors in the back seat.
All in all, a great day in the sun.
