And should be the last of the Saudi Hawks that will be seen flying at Warton. Interesting to see the spine panel from the Hawk AJT demo aircraft fitted!

Re: Cecil Field Jacksonville Florida 07-09-2017

Nice photos, I’m off to Jacksonville area for the Airshow soon. What is actually based at Cecil field? Is it worth a trip? Cheers Andy Further to Thunder’s reply, Cecil is certainly worth a visit, though would advise discreton and haste with photography. As well as the nice CBP P-3’s (which include...

Re: Cairo's Gems Part II: Egyptian Airforce Museum

Thanks chaps :thumb: So the 'Moth' may well be a replica (and a dodgy one at that)! Would anyone have info on the final EAF F-4's transiting through Europe after PDM in the US (around 1999-2000??). Further to their retirement, i am told they were withdrawn from service in 2011, replaced by F-16C/D B...

Cheers Phil, yes the An-2 is marked 950 (in Arabic).
Interesting info, i wish there was an ideal spot to lurk safely at there! A bit slow but anything that moves is :Wow:

...And i was still wondering when we pulled up at the gate. Big relief to get inside!
Asked the question, and not sure if lost in translation, but it may have been open to the public around a year now??

Re: Cairo's Gems Part II: Egyptian Airforce Museum

Thanks Herbert, you may be correct with the Phantom, not surprisingly it appears to have been 'prepared' for display, probably from a partly-stripped condition. And no, no information on the types retirement etc. There seems to be a lot of unknown about that, with some references still having them i...

Cairo's Gems Part II: Egyptian Airforce Museum

A great collection here in an impressive facility, at the NE side of Almaza Airbase. With a lot of the exhibits being kept in the shade undercover (understandable with the often harsh sun), photography conditions are obviously often not ideal, though not really a problem. So many highlights here, of...
