Re: Current B52s at Fairford as of 11-10-2019

But I've been doing it for 55yrs next April. I'd say that's not many considering there were 744 built. That's about the same as me, 55 years last August and have seen 108 of all marks - that includes about 15 at Griffiss AFB in 1980 though, so not all in the UK. :) mmmm started logging in 1970 and ...

Re: A few Fulcrums from Fairford

You can be 100% certain Paddy :thumbs:

7501 was the 1991 flier and 5616 was in the static.

Nice collection :clap:

Re: Italian Air Force Gate Guardian

Is that the Lanceri Neri F-86 that used to be on a plinth at Cameri?

Very nice set of gate guards.

Re: NAS Miramar '74 - part 1

I asked on the Facebook WIX page It has apparently been in the San Diego museum for a l-o-n-g time Not sure how I missed that :huh: :huh: The confusion is with the one in the USS Yorktown which some sources say is 79669 but is actually 79593 Well according to their own web page the San Diego one wa...

Re: NAS Miramar '74 - part 4

Gorgeous series :clap: We got the none photo tour in 1981 when there were still RF-8s on the ramp which was a bit of a bummer, also got the N Island no you can't photograph or make notes tour but we will drive you all the way round! VC-7 had gone by the time I visited but VFC-13 had moved in instead...

Re: NAS Miramar '74 - part 1

Very nice set. I was looking up that Hellcat recently as it has been confused with the one in the San Diego museum, both being ex NACA/NASA! This one certainly seems to have totally vanished.

Re: B2 EDWARDS AFB OCT 1990

82-1067 was the second B-2A and first flew 19th October 1990 from Palmdale to Edwards! 82-1066 should have been based at Edwards in 1990 while 82-1068 made its first flight on 18 June 1991.

So this will be the last selection for a while, have a load of UK types to edit and just started scanning the final folder of none UK, US stuff.

Re: Mostly going Dutch #4

Despite even seeing the YF-16s at Edwards in '74, I've never been a fan of them! I'm probably the solitary FC member who is. Photographed my first one at Paris '75 and the most recent at RIAT 2019 and while I have hundreds, if not thousands of F-16 photos they do not have the charisma of the jets t...

Re: Leuchars the Year it pee'ed it Down (73, 74 or 75?)

1973 was dry, I was on a coach trip from Liverpool! 1977 however it was torrential. We were on a tour from Liverpool to Leuchars, by way of Westlands at Yeovil, we thought we'd take the scenic route :whistle: I spent most of the show at Leuchars either in the back of the Merseyside Aviation Society'...

Re: USAF in Europe, another selection #5

Another great selection to jog the memory cells - thanks Ian. Shot #4 doesn't look like Mildenhall though.
