Just arrived at the boatyard to catch Tarnish 5 in ZR409 Oman Typhoon landing, T1 Hawk XX339 on a low approach. Then Tarnish 9 in RSAF Tornado ZE119 nice swept wing pass and land. As I approached Freckleton I could see 2 Wildcats lining up for 25 runway. Miffed I missed them.


Thanks for looking
Regards
Mickey :pop: :Wow:

Great shots, Mickey.
The RSAF Tornado looks stunning loaded up and swept back for business.
I must get up to Warton again. It's been many years.

Great pictures. The Saudi tornado needs to hit the Mach loop more often

I've just had a thought.......we are due to retire our Tonkas in a year or so. Will the Saudi Tonkas still be at Warton for the foreseeable future?

Great Pics as ever Mickey, sorry I missed you yesterday, was only at corner to see NS9 & ZE119 depart, watched them arrive from work.

Regarding Saudi Tornado, the rumour is its due back to sunnier climates in the next quarter.... :'(
