Carswell 2020

Post by hawgwash » Sat Jan 11, 2020 6:03 am

Again, not much of interest here in Texas but it's nice to see some action in the sunshine. A couple of new RAAF F-35's, Vermont ANG A's, UAE Viper F model is out and about again and some locals make up the posting. It'll hopefully brighten your day.

I'd be happy enough with the blue skies! Excellent sharp images. Any idea why the last F-35B is devoid of any tail-markings, including serial #? Assuming it's a test-flight / delivery. :unsure:

Great set yet again Matt. Do envy you!

Supra, there are markings on the last F35 photo' - can see "MARINES" under the tail so suspect that the bureau number is obscured by them.

I'd be more than happy with those, both frames and photos.

Marines on starboard outer wing too.

Nice shots Matt, I was lucky to go to JRB when VF-201? were still flying F-14s.
