A slice of Reapers top side

Post by XWP29 » Tue May 15, 2018 7:01 pm

With the 48th FW coming off '06" and good light the following shots were taken on Monday. Went on the off chance of seeing the 56th once more, alas only a short hover from each of the Pavehawks.

Hi Stig,
Good to meet you yesterday, hope you were a bit warmer today. .Yes disappointing all round, but at least we managed to snap the penultimate hovers, all 10ft of them :Wow: .

Very nice Nick with the F-15s

As Stig said - Better than today with the Pave Hawks - but all is not lost for those local - they are back!!! 😱 Rtb about 13.30 due to weather - Rapcon 'welcome back'

See you Saturday
