I almost didn’t take this photo. We had been at the Farnborough Airshow for three or four hours, stood in the same spot capturing everything that flew by. However, when I saw this Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Hornet taxing out onto the runway I was in two minds whether or not to pick up my camera and takes some photos.
Why? Well, I had already seen such amazing aircraft as the Red Arrows, The Blades, the A380 and many others. To me this was “just another fighter jet”. However, I did end up pointing my camera in its direction and I am very please that I did, because this is one of my favourite aircraft photographs.
