Re: USAF Aircraft numbers book / list

There is a similar book from Scramble. Not sure if there are many available as it sells out pretty quickly.

Re: First Pic of the 'Aggressor' Typhoon breaks cover.

it will be interesting to see how a Typhoon can simulate the new Russian fighters, eg the SU-35 etc. DACT uses different types of aircraft to simulate different threats. In days gone by F-5's were used to simulate Migs.

DC-10 Waterbomber

This is the DC-10 Water bomber and accompanying spotter turbo prop operating out of RAAF Richmond, NSW, last week end. Some pretty spectacular flying.

Thanks for posting those, something rather different, all three from north America? Obviously a great shame that they have to be there though.
The 737 is on permanent hire for the NSW State Gov, The Herc and DC-10 are from California,

Waterbombers at RAAF Richmond, NSW

This was previously posted in the wrong section, hopefully this works out.

I missed the C130 yesterday. Thankfully things have quietened down a bit.
