I think remember the Blue Tornado. The flying camels are extant and bang up to date with the Phenom at Cranwell!

Las Vegas gets my vote - aviation heaven and plenty to do - Grand Canyon only a 4 hour drive away

Re: Photo's of the 90s at Aviano AFB Part-1

Wow! Some of those really bring back a few memories. I did visit Aviano on a touchdown trip during one of the conflicts in the 1990s - I was reminded that they shut the main road during recoveries and there were hundreds of spotters just in the road watching the action - no hassle from the Carabiner...

Re: Lakenheath 11 Oct Runway 06 - "Proper Birds"

Cheers

With 06 departures I do get a bit 'greedy' and try to follow them out as they bank around resulting in a fairly drastic crop!

I fancy the back seater of 96-0205 is wearing a RAF flying suit?

Tempting to go down again today as the sun is out!

Re: Tracking sites on mobile

Not a lot

I use adsbexchange , planefinder , FR24 and FC on mobile quite a lot and I rarely get anywhere near 500mb ( I have a 2GB plan)

I am not on social media , tinder or grinder so that may help keep my data low.

Greek islands can be reasonable I stayed at Zante a few years back and you see quite a few practice approaches over the beach especially by T-6 Texans Also Crete is quite good - I got the bus to charnia and logged quite a few F-16 from the civil side Over in the Balearics, Palma can turn up various ...

Interesting pics

See you can have unit markings on F-35!

And how nice does that AV-8B still look

Still prefer Miramar when it was Navy Top Gun

Re: Reds on ITV 15:30

Bit like that but I am watching Britains ultimate pilots on ITV QB flypast followed by a display at Biggin 2 hours later. Next day, Sunday , is a positioning to Shawbury for Cosford airshow. Very enjoyable. It has reinvigorated my interest in the reds, which may have waned due to too many years of s...

Reds on ITV 15:30

Interesting program about the Reds on ITV1

Nice insight into the essential role of the ground crew in getting the reds airborne for the QB flypast

They repositioned to Biggin Hill to avoid poor weather at Scampton and roaded extra maintenance to fix a dodgy filter

Re: Parking at LN

It's great to see a new wave of yonger people out and about ( by younger I mean under 35!). Digital photography has really revitalized a hobby that I felt was ageing - what was the average age of an Air Britain member? It would be nice to see more younger loggers as well as ' toggers'.
