Kinloss Bolthole

Post by np1991 » Sat Oct 10, 2020 6:30 pm

Hi all,
With the Typhoons and P8s due to return home to Lossie this coming week, I thought I'd share some pics from the past few weeks during the bolthole with a few others thrown in.

Reason for missing the 35s arrival, worth it I think. BAF 701 at Inverness

Great set Niall. Bet you enjoyed having Kinloss active again, if only for a short while.

Niall, the light on the underside of the Poseidon in shot 19 is incredible !

Its gonna rain, its gonna rain till the levee breaks, a tidal wave of fear and pain washes us away, another fight into the night until nothing else remains, how do we find harbour from the Hurricane?

Excellent set and thanks for posting. The differences in the grey paint is interesting though. The P8's have a gloss finish but the Typhoons matt. If gloss is OK for the P8's then why matt for the Typhoons? Downside must be that the Typhoons don't slip through the air as well and get very grubby too!

Less visual glint when doing air-to-air.

The watermark is probably one of the most subdued you’ll find on here. On some of the imagines you have to look hard to find it.

Great set of pics Niall, seems somewhat weird seeing pics from Kinloss again.
