  10. I was fortunate to be able to attend the Ex Cobra Warrior Media Day last week and here's a selection of images from the day. The heat haze and change of runway mid morning made shooting challenging, but enough of my excuses...! By way of background, Ex Cobra Warrior is a tactical training event that took place over the period 1-20 September 2019 with RAF Waddington acting as the main operational hub, with aircraft and crews present from the UK, Germany, Italy and Israel. Elsewhere there was also participation from Canada and the USA. Ex Cobra Warrior usually occurs twice per year, once in the spring and once in the autumn. It is the RAF's capstone tactical training event designed to conclude the training of Qualified Weapons Instructor (QWI), Qualified Multi-Engine Tactics Instructor (QMETI), QWI Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (QWI ISR), and Qualified Space Instructor (QSI) students. The exercise aims to develop tactical skills of aircrew and supporting elements with a Composite Air Operation and provides valuable training opportunities for all participating Force Elements to practice and develop tactics, techniques and procedures in complex scenarios against a near peer adversary. The Force Elements are divided into red (enemy) and blue (friendly) forces, and much of the flying part of the exercise scenarios were held over the North Sea off Northern England and Scotland. The foreign forces deployed to RAF Waddington included for the first time, 7 x F-15C/D of the Israeli AF 106 Sqn, supported by a Boeing 707 tanker from 120 Sqn. The Italian AF elements comprised 4 x EF-2000 from AMI 4 Wg, 36 Wg and 37 Wg, from Germany 10 x EF-2000 from Luftwaffe TLG-73 and TLG-74. Hope these are of interest and thanks for looking.
  11. Great shots as ever and agree it's such a pity about shooting in to the sun all day. I too would like to be there but alas domestic duties come first! Mark
  12. Superb photos Gary. I'm finally going to Ex CW tomorrow and I'll be happy if I get some shots half as good as these. Regards Mark
  13. A cracking JP Seamus, I do like the Airfix T3/T4, a little belter of a model. Mark
  14. A terrific pair of Whirlwinds - alongside the Wessex may favorite types. The colour schemes look just right and the hard work paid off. Mark
