Re: Legacy Ladies - Nose Arts of the 100th Air Refuelling Wing

Oh dear. You mean, if it was going to be parked for some time they should've chocked it in gear and let the hand-brake off?!

Hi Starbucks

Thanks

Hopefully they'll be down there a few times over the course of the exercise.

Can anyone who'll be picking a few things up post some pictures?
