BTF Deployment- 10/09 and 14/09

Post by Seamus » Tue Sep 15, 2020 2:29 pm

Afternoon all,

Thought I'd share some images from a couple of trips up to Fairford in the last week to catch the B-52s on deployment. First, a frustrating afternoon on the 10/09 resulted in just a couple of images of YANKEE41 returning

I had much more luck on the 14/09 with KAGO flight returning after a long mission, plus the bonus arrival of BLACK01

There are a handful more on my Flickr for those interested. Hopefully I'll get another chance or two to get up there later this week before they go home.

Thanks for looking, hope they were of interest,

Shaun
