Apaches @ Kinloss

Post by np1991 » Fri May 18, 2018 4:16 pm

Hi all,

A detachment of 5x Apaches saw Kinloss see its first military aircraft on the deck for a couple years and was too good an opportunity to miss. So with that in mind I spent Sunday/Monday and Tuesday evening hoping they'd play ball and they certainly did.

Thanks for looking, hopefully not too long before the next detachment.
Cheers Niall

Well caught, must’ve been strange being back at your old local. Was wondering if they were going to be photographable at Kinloss, unfortunately due to work I couldn’t get through to find out, but they were certainly busy over Inverness during their stay. Is there word on them returning in the future?

Great to see some 'heavier than air' machines in the sky over Findhorn Bay again.
My old hunting grounds with the MR1/2 fleet.
Ahhh
I do miss my time in the RAF, but every month it reminds me how great it was with a lovely big cheque

Cheers guys :thumb:

It was great to visit the old spots again, shame the path up the hut is very overgrown but nothing some big cutters won't sort.
Scott, I've no idea if there will be more dets but I certainly hope so, was good to see the place used properly again :thumb:
Cheers Niall
