The Argosy came as a surprise in amongst all the US hardware.

Thanks for the comments guys.

It was certainly a varied tour, biggest surprise was at Nellis being invited up to the Thunderbirds ramp - during Red Flag too :ninja:

That was down to the driver of the bus I was on( Adrian I think from memory) he was serving in the British Army at the time, and used his MOD90 card to get access to the base PRO and the T Birds ramp. It was a Monday morning and the T Birds returned from a weekend show whilst we were in their hangar(looked as clean as an operating theatre), we were ushered out to the side of the ramp for their overhead arrival and taxi in.

The only Hangar where you could shave yourself looking at the floor. Interesting to see your shots from Sacramento as we didn’t head up there after Travis, instead we headed to San Francisco for the afternoon. It was a good trip(shame the Ozzy F111’s were held up in Hawaii and didn’t arrive at Nellis until later in the week).
