Photo Opportunity . . . Smile!

A British Royal Air Force Typhoon pilot
flies up to the back door of a C-130
(Hercules) for a photo opportunity.

 He radios,"How much closer do you want me?"
 They radio,"How much closer can you get?"
 Pilot Radios,.........”Close enough?”
You have to be a tad mad to be a fighter pilot
in today's world but, even crazier to be a
photographer looking down those
air intakes!
 
ONLY THING THEY DIDN'T DO IS TAP THE  
NOSE OF THE FIGHTER!

Banned, I was getting ready to send out a search party to look for you. I know all is well with the world when you stop by.

I think the markings are not visible.
