Re: A visit to Fallon

Glad you got your F5's Ross. Great action shots, much better than static ramp shots.

Re: Merlin Mk3 Commando Course 30

Judging by all the stencilling and stickers, would I be right in assuming these aircraft are operated by the Royal Navy. :lol:

Nice set of pics.

Looks like it was a great day for movements there today. Are they all due to leave tomorrow?

You can just hear the cogs start turning on that one. :lol:

Oh, and did you hear the one about the Reds moving to Lossie :thumbs:
They're not coming now Al. They wanted the white squares on the caravan painted red, and were told NO! :lol:

Re: 28th November.

They pitched up at Langholm, following the A7 East, around 3.10PM, and timed it nicely with low cloud and rain, so no pics unfortunately. :(

Re: Show us your worst !

I got quite a few of those at Leeming the other week. Just kept panning and shooting, and praying to the photo gods that those weren't the only sharp ones. :)

Always liked seeing the AMX, a nice looking plane. I used to see them a few times a year when they came over to Spade.

Wildcats

Spotted these on ADSB operating around Northumberland yesterday, so headed on down to see what I could get.

Re: Swiss F-18s

I can make the "X" out clearly, but not the reg. I can only make out a "Z" and a "9" through the soot. Scramble have "X" as ZJ955 in june 2019.

Very nice shots, thanks for posting. May I ask from where they were taken?
Pics 1-6 from the wall, and the rest from the viewing area.

Nice to catch up with you Michael, and Chris. See you all next year. :D

Swiss F18's Leeming 13 Nov 19

Thanks David. :thumbs: I did look to see if there was a dedicated thread for this exercise, but it must have started after I looked. Also kept an eye on ADSB as well, but as you've said, they don't appear to be on it.
