Re: RNAS Lee-on-Solent 1994

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?

Thanks for putting me right on that. Can offer more Norwegian, Dutch or USAF but not Canadian or Jordanian. As far as I know the '83 Ch.Fenton show was the only time they appeared over here. I do have pics of the single -seater which gave the display but they're b&w. Did they genuinely come all the...

Can never have enough pictures of the Sluf. Just for the record England AFB was in Louisiana.
So it was! Picture was taken at Pope AFB, NC. The 23rd Wg at Pope used to be based at England.

SLUFs - getting in on the act

Some lovely A-7 posts on here recently. Prompted me to have a look on my Flickr account to see what I had to offer. Not much operational stuff, they'd mainly retired by the time I got out with a camera :-( Preserved at NAF El Centro, Jul 1992: https://live.staticflickr.com/4135/4929017246_4bfbd8191a...

Strays 14th March

Thanks to the really helpful posts on this forum, I was able to catch the two Buffs that did the Baltic mission this morning before heading to Fairford. The weather played ball for once, and even better, I needed both machines! Both seen over Northamptonshire. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7907/473...
