Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

The banning of ladders outside the fence/A15 verges is complete overkill IMHO. That's the main bug bear for me as the fence is too high without them and as long as you're not directly under the approach etc can't see the issue? Can see the WAVE being a bunfight with ladders all down the side fence w...

Not a patch on a JP, but will miss them.
Can't see how 10 Texans will do their job.

I seem to remember the French Jags being a bit low coming in.

No high fence in those days. :clap:

I was down for one of the days during this deployment as a nipper. Remember the colour rudders on the GAF F-4s and the GR3 wing Harrier vividly.

ZM335 departed Waddington this afternoon as CWL 45, assume went to Cranwell?
Under her own power? Hopefully damage fixed.

336 was still present today.

Blimey! Never used to let it get in that state (Waddo hedge).

(Maybe keep this on track for Coningsby as I get confused in my old age).
They had a Turkish F16 back in the day though to keep the hedge low. :cool:
I remember a Belgian F-16 scoring a direct hit on the fence. :Wow:
