Re: Help please!

Thanks for your time Neil, glad you have had/are having a good week. Spotting and fishing, doubling up the enjoyment and they say men cant multi-task :D . Am looking for some Hawk action so sounds like I might be in luck. Thanks again.

Re: If you could visit one spot in the UK

Coningsby or Lakenheath usually don't fail to disappoint so its a case of if Typhoon or F-15 are your preference. Both bases have options of doing Mildenhall in Lakenheaths case or Cranwell/Scampton in Coningsbys case, if they are quiet or getting repetitive. Also Coningsby have Hangar tours of the ...
