EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the awe-inspiring sight of a Royal Navy Harrier Jet soaring high over RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus. Taken by LA (Phot) Luis Holden, this image won him the prestigious Navy News Award in the 2011 Peregrine Trophy Photographic Competition. The photograph showcases a Joint Force Harrier jet against a clear blue sky, just moments before it was decommissioned and became an iconic piece of history. The sheer power and elegance of the aircraft are evident as it cuts through the air with precision and grace. Its sleek design and advanced technology symbolize the strength and capability of the Royal Navy. This particular Harrier jet belonged to 800NAS squadron based at RAF Cottesmore, making its appearance over RAF Akrotiri even more significant. RAF Akrotiri's picturesque landscape serves as a breathtaking backdrop for this extraordinary moment frozen in time. The vibrant colors bring out every detail of this magnificent machine, highlighting its importance within military operations. LA (Phot) Luis Holden's skillful composition perfectly captures both the beauty and significance of this historic event. His talent behind the lens has earned him well-deserved recognition from his peers in winning such a prestigious award. This print is not only a testament to our armed forces' dedication but also serves as a reminder of their commitment to protecting our skies with state-of-the-art equipment like this Joint Force Harrier jet.
