Re: B-52s at rest....from the air

Great photos - thank you for posting them. Any idea of which B-52s are shown? Also what date/time photos taken - parking spots of some a/c changed between my visits on 19/03 and 04/04. Working round anti-clockwise from the top of photo, the five a/c appear to be parked on spots 51, 50, 47, 46 and 54...

Re: RAF Scampton after 2019

The system is that the UK & NI give the EU lots of money, but they return a fraction of it back to the UK & NI. Sounds a bad deal to me, but what do I know!

Re: RAF Mildenhall to close. Lakenheath to get F-35 by 2020

Bad news - just put down a £50K deposit on a 4-bedroom detached house which is to be built on the ATC tower foundations. Hopefully I'll get it back, but slightly worried, or maybe will have to wait a while.

Re: F-117 Death valley

Presumably the F-35 has an on/off switch for non-stealth mode?

Re: Potential Blackhawk Replacement Starts Ground Tests

Would folding rotor blades and each half of tailplane folded forward make it loadable into a C-130? difficult to judge.

They look as good as the ones I take with my cheap DSLR. What bridge camera were they taken with?

If not that, then a bridleway (so that the horses used by the police for crowd control are happy).

Red Flag 19-1

I believe that about 8 Typhoons of 6 Sqn have departed to attend Red Flag 19-1 at Nellis AFB. Does anyone know exactly when they departed and which ones they were?

CV-22B recent visitors

I see that several CV-22Bs have been operating from MW this week. Any idea if this is to continue for the next couple of days? If so, where is the best place outside the airfield to view/photograph them? (PS. Not Mildenhall!)
Many thanks, TM74

Good photos. There was an MC205 Veltro, probably a replica, at one of the Farnborough airshows a few years ago - but I can't remember exactly when.

Re: CH-47 at Fairford

Rumoured that damage caused by impact with rotor blade of another Chinook while aircraft deployed on operations. Assume that repair will be done by Boeing at either Fleetlands or Boscombe Down.
