Lucky to catch the 1st painted Omani hawk ZB123 and also the 3rd Omani hawk still in primer ZB125.Tarnish 9 was at the controls.
Nice day for it as well, wall to wall sunshine.
Thanks for looking
Regards

Nice stuff Mickey as always, they've finally found some green and brown paint at Warton!

Be nice to see a Typhoon in a similar scheme...we can only wish I guess.

Take care mate.
