Re: Lakenheath viewing area open?

When you arrive at wherever, practice best (& frankly obvious) efforts to avoid breaking the arbitrary 2metre distancing rule & do NOT pass anything hand to hand with others. If you fuel en-route use the gloves provi...

I'm fairly sure I've read a fairly in-depth analysis of various images over a period comprising different window locations, apertures, portholes, antenna appendages, etc which allude to the potential re-coding of the same airframe to disguise/conceal its cap...

Serious question... Who needs Volunteers all the time there are 'Postings'? There is some financial & practical merit in the suggestions by Ghost from above. Cue 'Agent K' for the rationale?

Looks to me that a Lightning might be parked between 2 & 3 Phantom in the last shot, anybody got a shot of that? Phantoms are always going to be 'special' but Lightnings are the 'Dogs Nutsack'! :thumbs:

You did the double here! Firstly, well-done for getting access & secondly being there at the better time of day. :thumb:
These well kept exhibits are being engulfed by adjacent trees & bushes as time goes on & clear shots will get harder to achieve. :roll:
