I needed more images from the Tattoo so spent another great evening shooting two performances on Saturday 15 August.  As the earlier performance starts at 7.30 pm the light was better for the flyover. Arriving from over the Firth of Forth from RAF Kinloss it’s a stunning sight to see the plane go right over the esplanade and Edinburgh Castle as the crowds look skywards and hear the roar of the engines.

The shot was taken from riggers walkway the top of the production teams gantry and above private boxes – thus at roof top height.
