Hi all,

Midday display by the Roulettes at the MotoGP, the clouds were fairly low so the flight seemed very low. I wasn't directly below the plane but not too far off, and nearly fell over backwards following it overhead.:

K10d, da*300, pentax 1.7 TC, cropped a bit & curves adjustment to lighten the cockpit.
