Marham Enthusiasts Afternoon - 25.01.19

Post by James Cutting » Tue Feb 05, 2019 6:59 pm

Haven't seen many threads/pictures from this event (Which is a shame :S ) So thought I'd upload my favourites. What an awesome event it was, especially after last summer's event! There wasn't much hope held for this, however, with it being a final chance to catch the Tornado's so close, I felt it was not worth missing. We did not know in advance what would be happening, so it made for a nice surprise to be close with not one, but 3 Tornado GR4's! :thumbs: Not only that, but we would be able to see the full start up and taxi out procedure for the GR4 which was fascinating, and then being bussed to the refurbished 06/24 runway, within 200 metres of the GR4 taking off was unbelievable :clap: Overall, it was a brilliant afternoon - So thanks to all at RAF Marham - And good luck to those of you who are able to go on the second run of it :thumb:

Enjoy! :thumb:

Some really nice photos there.

Without getting overly sentimental I think the Tornado will be missed in RAF service

Nice set Jimmy from what looks like a great afternoon

Hate the use of that word ‘retro’ - can remember this scheme and have loads of shots in the scheme - makes me feel old🙃🙃
