RAF Valley 12&13.9.18

Post by TAFFEVANS » Thu Sep 13, 2018 4:58 pm

Fairly quiet couple of days with the highlight being the 6 Texans lined up on ASP5 the old 'Seahawk Line' - the shape of things to come. No 25Sqn jets flying since the one that came & went from Hawarden.

Jesus, they've even got a red sticker on a Texan. Have any of those actually flown, post delivery? Can't recall seeing any pics of them flying.

Not as yet. This was the first time that all 6 had been out, probably training the turnaround crews.

Great to see AX at Valley.
Great post, be glad to finally see the Texans in the air, even though they have bought the wrong aircraft (PC-21 Cough Cough).

There's (or was yesterday) a Texan at Glasgow Airport N2858B with '329' on the tail.

Further down the page, caught it on the ground at Hawarden last weekend. There are 2 apparently at the moment ZK029:FE & :FG don’t know the registration yet. Taff.
