Any idea where BRIG01 and 2 are?
According to ADS-B Exchange, Brig 01 and 03 are together. I guess if 02 doesn't have a transponder they might all be together?

Re: NAS North Island, April 1999

Plus, back in those days I was more of a number cruncher than a photographer. You can have no idea how just much I regret having that attitude back then! Yep. I've got pages and pages of logbook scribblings with thousands of serials. Somehow scanning and sharing those doesn't have quite the same ap...

NAS North Island, April 1999

Having spent some time scanning slides from a 1999 trip to the SW US, thought I'd share some. My scanning and processing of slides is not great - I didn't really use slides much, and when I did it was cheapo Jessops film. Plus, back in those days I was more of a number cruncher than a photographer. ...

Chandler, Az April 1999

Been scanning some slides from a trip to the SW USA way back in 1999. Having scanned several boxes of AMARC overflights I was starting to get a little jaded (AMARC overflights are great, but the pictures do get to be a bit samey after a while!). Happily I then stumbled across a few pictures from Cha...

What a fantastic set of pictures! I agree about Leuchars shows always being grey and dull, not sure I ever had the 'shooting into the sun' problem of which you speak :-)

Lovely Gannets! I saw XG888 at Nowra in 2001, sadly the picture doesn't really do her justice:

Re: A couple of heavies from a couple of Air Fetes

Does anyone know if those EC-135Hs were capable of being tankers? I seem to remember they always did a flypast with the boom down, suggesting it was operational in some form.. Yet I'd have thought it was odd for a airborne command post to double as a tanker..

Re: Display Tucanos

I do like a Tucano, prefer the red/white scheme to the black. Nice to see so many special schemes. Is it a normal scheme for this year's display?
