Re: Turkish F-35 Delivery Blocked

After Vietnam was taken over I remember seeing, in a US facility, a lot of F5s that were not going to be delivered to Vietnam. Not sure what finally happened to them, but probably sold on to others. Filmman I believe a lot of them ended up in USAF as aggressors, there were a lot at Williams AFB in ...

Tornado GR.4s at Lakenheath

Does anyone have the identities of the three Tornado GR.4s on the visitors ramp, just west of the two remaining Saudi F-15SAs? I'm told they arrived on Friday (29th).

Re: Lack of Typhoon squadron markings

Those of us of a certain age will remember almost the entire US P-3 fleet devoid of any markings including no bureau numbers for an extensive period during the 80's because, I believe, of a perceived threat from Iran. So, be thankful that at least the Typhoons can be identified by serial.

Re: 16 Tutor formation - 10th - 12th May 2017

Does anybody know why this is happening and more importantly which day? My guess is that a 3 day window was planned in consideration of weather.
