Here are my selection of a great base tour today. Special thanks to Micheal for organizing and to the public affairs for looking after us for the day. :thumb: :thumb:

Nice post, judging by some of those shots you got into the control tower, looks like you had a super trip.

Great photos; it was a very good tour and well done to Michael for organising it and for the base to lay on such a great day for us!

Yes we did get in the tower and was quiet lucky as they were the last 2 of the day to land.

Top day 👍🏻 Love every moment of it. As you say Adam, they looked after us so well. And in the current climate of security, hadn't expected that kind of access 😃

Nice photos. I was on a base tour a couple of years ago, but came away with few photos. Air Traffic Control photos? No - it's all "classified". Parked aircraft photos? No - they're "classified", e.t.c.
I'm not complaining - the tour was great, even without many photo opportunities.
