Hi Juggin :P

One of your best posts, IMHO :whistle:

What a great day you had, yet again :@

Love those WB pics big time :thumb:

On the first C5 pic, it looks as if it is dropping 'window' :lol:

Would be nice to get a 'ping' from 'oldeng' sometime myself :(

Best regards

Superb set. Can't quite read the wording on the C5. Is it West Virginia ANG from Martinsburg?

I thought I'd heard most "nicknames" for aircraft but "fred" is not one of them. Anyone care to explain the logic (if any) behind that one please?

And getting back to the topic - brilliant set of images there - thanks for posting.

Justin, have you noticed that the Canberra is minus the dorsal hump on its back; it had it attached when I fluffed my photographs when it was there on 3rd Feb this year. Not entirely sure what it does and why its not wearing it now ????

Yes mate- i did notice that. I believe that 926 has had the same modification too. Not sure about the 'new' (927) one though. :S
