Nice shots - not been around to that gate in years - is it still a high slatted fence?

When the GAF tornados arrived I thought they were all carrying a long cream coloured device under the fuselage - but I can see from your pics that's not the case.

Don't bother - much nicer locations on the other side with the sun behind you ;)
