A busy (long) weekend for Mildenhall

Post by James Cutting » Sat Jun 09, 2018 3:57 pm

Afternoon all,

I'll try to break up some of the F-35 posts with some of everyone's recent favourites...the Hogs (in case you'd forgotten! :P ) I'm yet to upload any on here, so I will stick on my favourites of the arrivals and departures (wait to you see them in the sun ;) ) Wait till after pic 8, there is more than just Hogs!!

Hope you enjoy looking :thumb:

Chees Pete :D

The A-10s were only a stopover on their way to a deployment. From what I am aware of, it is a short deployment and might stop back again on their way home.
