Nice Nick!

Glad you had the weather we had down south first thing :D :D

The Gunships look good although somewhat sand blasted! Need a good clean down by the looks of it!

Good one and mind the cars :Wow: :Wow:

Nice shots of the ACs, didn't realise the US still operated any C130s with the older model engines any more!
