Saturday at Mildenhall.

Post by gary1701 » Sun Dec 07, 2014 12:33 pm

Gents,

Bright weekends at Mildenhall are usually a recipe for next to nothing happening, but popped over yesterday morning and was surprisingly rewarded with a load of '135's in and out.

Hi and no problem. First five images were taken from the mound. After that I switched to Folly Road as I knew a MC-130 was coming out so I wanted to be able to shoot that and still get the inbounds. Those ones are from a ladder over the fence. It was also too damn cold to be away from the car by then!
