More from Fort Worth

Post by hawgwash » Fri Feb 12, 2021 3:04 am

Hope this finds you all well. Thought I'd post some recent images from north Texas, not too much of interest but anything right now is a bonus.

Great selection here, but my favourite of the set is the Mirage F-1M.

Thanks for posting.


Enjoying the hobby - whether I see what I’d hoped for, or totally missed it :whistle:

Very nice set of pics and some rarities there. I have a pic of the 8 Ballers HH-60 CAG at El Centro. Presumably the Air Force has a squadron with the same name with the 8 ballers Texan?

Those special Texans (and T-38s that we've seen in other threads) look terrific.

Interesting set of shots & all worthy of a good inspection. The S211 is great with the civil serial where the military one would be on a T-45, not sure why he didn't finish the illusion by adding a tail-fin letter? Most interesting for me is the E-2D with that highly inconspicuous AAR probe looking like it's always been there....NOT!
Perhaps it's the 'Ghost of Christmas Future' if Airtanker play hardball. Maybe somebody with excellent photo-manipulation skills can show us an RAF C-17, P-8 & E-7 with this 'natural-looking' addition. :roll: :whistle:
