My Merry Christmas!

Post by The Apprentice » Mon Jan 05, 2015 5:15 pm

Hi all,

I hope you all had a good Christmas. This Christmas holiday has been absolutely great, providing me with a great end to the year. Thanks to all of the great people who have kept me company over my visits! It has been great to get out with my new toy from Christmas and there has been some great things to play with!

Luca


Pre Christmas day

Post Christmas day
Not long after Christmas day I had my first chance to play with my new toy when RC-135V 64-14841 departed

Then we were treated to the last white top of the year in the shape of ZZ664 returning from deployment.

That day we were treated to two ospreys:

KNIFE75 11-0057, 7th SOS

Then one of the NATO SAC C-17A's (080003/03) popped in. She is thought to be supporting a SOG deployment :S

Then the curtain was finally pulled today by KC-135R 62-3537 departing this morning

Thanks for looking, I hope you all have a fantastic 2015

Nice set Luca - particularly the light on our RC-135.

I hope you're enjoying Ely Squadron! :)
