RNAS Yeovilton - 15 September 2020

Post by Seacat192 » Tue Sep 15, 2020 7:02 pm

My first trip to Yeovilton during my third period of Furlough from work.

Didn't pick the busiest of days to go my local Military airfield, but photographed flying activity from the based Grobs, Merlins and Wildcats, plus a couple of civvy flights.

Unexpected bonus in the shape of the newest addition to the Navy Wings Associate fleet, a Tiger Moth, which made a handful of circuits of the airfield.

I hope the Mods don't object, but I've added the Tiger Moth to this thread, rather than starting a new thread for one or two photos.
