Re: Monday at Fairford.

Nice shots Dave, they look similar to mine. It was me (the Scottish fellow) who was chatting with you most of the morning. Nice to meet you and thanks for the company. Well worth the drive out and a great first visit for you.

Mildenhall 06/02/20

A selection from a cold but sunny Mildenhall on the 6th of February. The Turkish C-130 tail art was particularly nice to see. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49502666806_4ca155b7d5_o.jpg C-17A 01-0191 RAF Mildenhall 2 WM by Kevin Bell , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49502887602_8...

E-11 crash in Afghanistan

Images circulating on Twitter of the burnt out remains of a USAF E-11A in Afghanistan. No clue as to the cause. Hopefully the crew are ok.

Re: NOTAM 22/11/2019

Many thanks. Is it in a position to get a photograph or is it masked by the other C-5. I may get a chance to swing past in the morning and if it’s positioned ok, that will influence my decision.

Can anyone advise where 86-0015 is parked? Is it by the B2 Hangars?

Re: Mytee 21 & 22 - 3rd september 2019

Both of the B-2s that flew today have shut down and maintenance stands are placed for the ground crew to inspect the upper surfaces and intakes. I doubt they will be flying any time soon, if at all today.
