A Few Hours at Prestwick Airfield

Hearing that the Refuelling Tanker and the two Hornets would depart today I headed down to Prestwick.

After a short delay the aircraft fired up and taxied down for take-off.

Nice to see the Hornets pick up speed and take off in a lively fashion and hope my images do justice.
