Friday Coningsby and Waddington Ops

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me why Typhoons keep their wheels down during circuit operations following overshoots and touch and goes? Is it just the RAF that do this or other Typhoon ops?

Got a surprise today when a pair of Typhoons popped out their drag chutes, is this a practice thing or systems check thing or what?

Hi Wally. Hope you're well.

Couldn't see any Typhoons, I was too busy drooling over the "real" Lightning fighter in the background.

Hiya Chris,

I just noticed your response, yep I am fine and well, just coming to the end of my 4 month holiday in the UK.. going back home to Perth Tuesday week. I am adding a few more pics here taken yesterday at Waddigton and Coningsby again.. I have carefully edited them to hide any hint of a Lightning for the continued health of your non drool proof keyboard!

I think the Typhoons keep the gear down as each u/c cycle fatigues the airframe.
