[Photo] The most stunning images of RAF Photographic Competition 2013

The Royal Air Force held its annual Photographic Competition last month.

The photos were amazing, most of them can be seen and downloaded in extremely high resolutions here. We have chosen two pictures to share with TheAviationist readers.

A stunning image of Tornado over London that became a PR photo of the year, by SAC Andy Masson:

Tornado GR4 Over London

And a photo of a flame bursting out of the Spitfire’s exhaust pipes by SAC Graham Taylor, the RAF Photographer of the year:

A special mention goes once again to Graham Taylor for his stunning long exposure shot of a Eurofighter Typhoon (top image of this post) sitting under the star-lit sky of the Middle-East during a multi-national traning exercise.

Thanks for the heads-up go to Tomasz Skirecki, PhD from the Faculty of English of University of Poznan.
