NAS Fallon - Top Gun - 2007

Postby elderforest on Mon 01 Apr 2013, 6:25 pm

Hi all,

A few more 'oldies'. This time from a ramp tour of NAS Fallon in 2007 including the control tower (where most of these were taken). Posted some of these on UKAR a few years ago, but this is the first time they've had the 1024 treatment.

Hope you like them.

Cheers.

Some real beauties there! All superb but my picks must be the blue Vipers.

Nice to see the S-3 in there, too... miss those.

Like that SH-60 in the "boring" charcoal grey scheme.....

Strange how it looks good on a different airframe!

What a great set from a fab Base :clap:
First trip there for me was back in 1992. Got around the flight line during the show that year.

Well done for getting up in the tower, PAO's were always a bit funny about doing that on Navy Air stations!
