RAF Scampton 8.12.17

Post by flyingslug_0 » Sat Dec 09, 2017 5:25 pm

Scampton has been busy nearly every day with the team practicing hard for their 2018 season. When I went the four ship "Gypo" flight flew for the first time together and they showed a new maneuver called the "100" basically its three hawks two do a loop and the 3rd pulls straight up all making smoke making the number 100. Looks cool if only the wind wasn't too bustary to get a decent shot!
