Thanks Nighthawke think I was suffering from a dose of dakotaitis! Yep, you weren't the only one. As Sunday was the only time I could get to see them I was well impressed with how the arrivals and the Mag-7 returners were handled in the afternoon.

Re: Mildenhall and Lakenheath from the overhead,plus the Cardington sheds.

Hi Jay.
Excellent shots, like others I'm surprised so many Eagles left outside over the weekend.
No doubt you'll try again next time there's a F22 or similar TDY there?

Re: Groom Lake, 14th Feb 2019

The last few pages of photos don't have any Brize shots so why think nobody would want to look.

P8s at Atlanta Hartsfield 3/2/19

Hi folks.
Not sure if anyone else was at Hartsfield during the Superbowl weekend but there are 2 P8s in Delta's maintenance area.
167954.
168432.

Not sure when they arrived or are due out. 954 is missing part of its rudder.

Hi folks. Interesting reading the comments. Only photograph I've ever had used was one of those fluke shots where I happened to be in the right place at the right time. Though it was a civvie aircraft, an A340, the fact it was skidding off the runway (Brussels 1997) that made it notable, so I sent i...

Hi Reinier.

Like the Montana(9) in the rain, lots of people wouldn't have tried.

Should England progress further, please think of us poor sods on early shifts. Don't go racing out in your cars at 2230 blowing your horns!

Hard enough to sleep in this weather.
