Warton 20/2 - 22/2

Post by np1991 » Fri Feb 23, 2018 5:10 pm

Hi all,
Spent a quiet few days away to Warton for a change. Rewarded on Thursday with Advanced Hawk ZJ951 so not a wasted trip :thumb:

3,
22/2 Tarnish 29 took ZJ951 up making it a worthwhile trip (in my opinion),

Couldn't wait for the later Typhoon flights, so headed north once the Hawk had landed.
Many thanks to all the Warton locals I spoke to over the 3 days I was there. Great laugh and your local knowledge was very much appreciated :thumb:
Cheers Niall

Empty front seat you don't see very often on two seat fighters.

Cheers,

Nice one fella,
Still looks strange just seeing a back seat driver.
Really like the T1 pairs approach also.

Fine sunny shots you made there. And like already said, strange sight, that empty front seat on the advanced hawk...
