Re: A few from a month of wreck and relic bashing (Updated)

Thanks again for the comments, it's great to know you enjoyed them and makes the effort of posting worthwhile. I really enjoyed hunting them down, it'd seemed so long since we'd had nice weather, a decent amount of daylight and since I'd seen any notable amount of aircraft so I fully utilised a few ...

The only F4 pics I got were these two, XV411. Again of poor quality.

Re: A few from a month of wreck and relic bashing

Cheers for the comments, I'm glad you've liked seeing them. Unfortunately I wasn't lying when I said a lot of them aren't really upto a sharing standard. I've scraped the barrel to show a few more.

A few from a month of wreck and relic bashing (Updated)

Below are just some of the hundreds of pictures I've snapped this month. I only really photo to save me the effort of writing things down and for a bit of fun so no critique is required and a large number aren't even worth sharing but here's a few for you to look at. I've not included the likes of H...

Re: Notam 20th November 2013

Does anyone happen to know which U2 is in the left hand (as you look across the runway) hangar. I believe there to be one in each at the minute and with the right hangar firmly shut at the time of my visit yesterday, I could only see the one in the open left hangar seemingly having some work done on...

Sea King HC4 ZA299 (D) returned to the UK on Sunday evening and was noted outside the Rubb Hangars at Brize on Tuesday morning looking ready for onwards transport so it's a pretty dead cert this was the one you saw.
