Well, only a month and a half left of 2020! Considering all the crazy stuff that happened this year, it flew past pretty quick for me. I didn't go on a single holiday this year due to well, we all know what, but at least I got to go to my local RAF bases Lossiemouth and Kinloss, I also saw some pretty exciting stuff whilst at home such as Pumas that were visiting to help with moving patients and A400Ms popping for a visit from BZZ. The highlight has to be the two spits G-IRTY and G-ILDA, hoping to finish the year with seeing the Catalina 'Miss Pick up' that will be doing an unplanned detour to Inverness airport to fix some stuff. Without further ado, here are some of my favourite pictures (in no particular order). Pumas came to visit from RAF Leeming to help with coronavirus efforts. Some of the local HMCG Helis, S92s becoming rarer nowadays for some reason, seeing the AW189 a lot. AW189 at Inverness airport when I went to see G-IRTY and G-ILDA. G-ILDA, was very happy when I noticed the pilot waving G-IRTY aka the silver spitfire, they sounded great! What time is it? A400M time! We also got a C-17 which was exciting. Another VERY exciting thing that happened was seeing the one and only (for now at least) An-225! Bad picture but in my defence it was very far away, this was with 120 times zoom if I remember correctly. Lossiemouth and Kinloss time - last section for now: These aren't all the pictures from Lossiemouth but I chose a few of the best ones. Kinloss: And to finish it off, good old DofE. Unfortunately I saw no action at Lossie nor Kinloss, only towing action but it was still great. Feel free to share what you saw this year, I would enjoy it, I may post more here depending on whether I see anything good thanks for reading @Adam Poultney here's your tag.
