That fog was pretty savage on Saturday! :Wow:
Nice record of the weekend there mate- as i mentioned on Facebook, the OC shot is a real winner and was well worth the hike through the mud! :D

Like the SOG row lineup too- light was pretty much perfect for that shot. :clap:

Catch you this weekend hopefully bud. :thumb:

Nice shots!

As a newbie I'm trying to find my feet with military aviation.

So judging by these photos, mildenhall does have some action over the weekend?

Thankyou mate.
I'll have to take the plunge and drive over. What about weekday evenings? Same thing or is there more chance of action than over a weekend?

Weekday evenings are more active with the SOG boys MC 130J's and CV 22's heading out for training missions and QUIDs in and out from AR missions so could be a good call for ya.
