Lakenheath 26th October 2017

On route to Norwich airport last week I realised I was around 20 minutes ahead of schedule so thought I`d stop off at Lakenheath on the off chance I might see something.

A liitle something I`ve been working on for the last couple of months. It`s not particularly accurate in some areas and just built for fun with the old 1/48 scale Italeri kit. http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac81/tc2324/IMG_6146_zpspexiljcc.jpg http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac81/tc2324/IMG_6...

Re: Tiger Bounce

Great idea. Would the F-4Js have had Fletcher tanks fitted for this at this time though? They were delivered with them.. Yes, of course they were, as that was a long distance ferry flight! The subject is a completely different kind of sortie, hence my question "fitted for this". A good question and...

Tiger Bounce Back in 1985, 74 had had a pretty successful APC in Cyprus and flown against the F-14`s of VF-41 and VF-84 who were in the Med at the time. Feeling pleased with itself, on returning to the UK, the Tigers issued a challenge to all Strike Command Squadrons. 74 would man a CAP off the eas...
