2nd Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
A Friendly Wave.RAF C130 Hercules positions for a narrow valley in Wales.

"I wanted to create an image that was different to the normal, side-on, low-flying image," says Ridsdale. "I had to position myself on the side of a mountain anticipating the line the aircraft would take through a narrow valley so they would be head-on to my position. The wave from the Captain is the icing on the cake."
