From My 1970's Darkroom (Last of a few)

THE SENTINEL

One evening in the 80’s my camera club at St.Ives, Cambridgeshire had an evening out at RAF Alconbury, an American airbase just outside Huntingdon. With only a few restrictions we had a fairly free hand to look where we wanted and this was one of the images I took of the tail end of a McDonnell Douglas Phantom F4, the type of aircraft being flown from the base at that time. I took it more or less against the falling light of the darkening sky and felt the title ‘The Sentinel’ was just right for this image.

I like how the perspex cockpit cover is open to allow the mosquitoes to find a place to rest out of the evening breeze, Brian.
the lighting makes it mysterious
It has been an interesting mix of pictures Brian

Happy days - eh Brian
A great title indeed for this mysterious image Brian!
i think you've made good use of the available light and created a fine shot, Brian. i will look forward to more of your darkroom pictures.

I remember the downward-pointing "wings" (sorry brain dead, I can't think of their proper name) of these. I don't think it was a feature that was repeated.
I like this a lot.
