    Prestwick 09 June.

    That's a very 'standard' looking WC-130. Where are all the sensors and big antenna fairings? It would pass me by as an everyday C-130. I like the last shot of the Growler, nice
  2. Always interesting, Martin. Greek aviation always reminds me of those lads that were arrested for plane spotting in about 1976/7. I met one of them spotting at Northolt, we were saddened to hear that they had confiscated his log book. He did manage to see some F-102 Delta Daggers, possibly their undoing?! Glad you got home safely Cheers.

    F-35 arrives at RAF Marham

    Yes, some very nice pictures. I like the approach and landing ones. I guess they came in with the nozzle down and did a rolling landing. Looking forward to seeing and hearing them. Heard a few jets flying around this afternoon but couldn't see anything, just a couple of F-15's (which is nice enough). Probably won't go tomorrow as the RAF don't generally fly on a weekend Maybe one day next week. I can't believe I am saying this, but they look very smart with the solid darker grey on the upper surface. The odd one out with those zig-zag markings I'm not so keen on.

    F-35 arrives at RAF Marham

    The RAF's first F-35 Lightnings have arrived at Marham here in Norfolk. Four aircraft I believe, in this initial delivery flight. I am looking forward to getting over there and seeing them in action. Anyone else interested in these aircraft, any photo's?

    Nimitz - Stokes Bay, June 1978

    Just some more flight deck or hanger stuff from the Nimitz would be fine
  7. Oh yes, that is a 'Wow' alright. May I ask, who was Col George Laven and how did he manage to have such colourful personal aircraft? I think I have an old Microscale sheet with a Starfighter of his.

    Some Samaritans

    The Mach2 kit is on my list of 'kits I would like to have'. I just need to work up the courage! Lovely collection of pictures, thank you.
  11. Lovely pictures of some beautiful aeroplanes. Two of my favourites, Hornet Moth and the little Aeronca. Looks like a great day out, I really must make the effort to go.

    Tyabb airshow

    I have to agree, you are very lucky. Those are some beauties. I'd love to see the Boomerang and Wirraway. Nice pictures, cheers.
  13. Blimey, I remember this! Amazing work on those two.

    Very nice. Did you sort out the Boomerang, Wirraway and Trojans etc.
  15. I'm glad it wasn't just us then occupational hazard I guess. You managed to avoid capture and go on to post these great photos
