Re: French Army Alouettes, early 1980s

Thank you for the replies, and the link to a fascinating website!

I believe I've sorted 4 out of 6, with just AOR and AOY outstanding, if anyone else sees this.

Farnborough 15/8/95 - Helicopter formation

This was, I believe, a rehearsal for a flypast to mark the *50th* anniversary of VJ Day. From my vantage point I was unable to see any serials or codes, but logged them in my diary as follows: 2x Chinook 3x Sea King HC.4 3x Puma 2x Sea King (1 yellow, 1 red & grey) 2x Wessex 1x Gazelle 3x Lynx (1 wi...

Farnborough 16/12/04 - Two Tornadoes

I've forgotten the occasion, but two Tornadoes visited Farnborough on 16/12/04:

One was ZE942/XE, an F.3. Can anyone identify the other, which was a GR?

Thanks,
keithjb.

Re: USS Eisenhower in Stokes Bay, 02-June-1984

Thank you gents, you've helped clear up a high percentage of my queries.

I've detected one error in the useful hampshireairfields site: the S-3A serial 158863 (AG-710) is also given as the identity of the A-7E AG-310! Can anyone offer a correction?

Thanks again,
keithjb.

Re: USS Eisenhower in Stokes Bay, 02-June-1984

I believe I can add two to this log: 149942 KA-6D AG-514 160007 E-2C AG-602 I also had a 2nd EA-6B, 161245, although I have the code for this as AG-605 with no code recorded for 161242. I am left with the following still unidentified, if anyone else can hel...

USS Eisenhower in Stokes Bay, 02-June-1984

Can anyone provide a log of the aircraft embarked during the above visit, please?

I managed to obtain a lot of the individual aircraft codes, but do not have these tied up to the full serials.

MTIA, keithjb.
