I was standing alongside your Dad when he took this shot (#110) - happy days!

Miss him so much.

Thanks for posting yet more superb images. You did well to catch Boscombe's Lightning, living fairly close to the base we used to visit on a regular basis and in all those years never caught a glimpse of it- not even on the ramp! In the early 80s I was fortunate to have an extensive base visit whilst in the fire service and XS422 was of course nowhere to be seen perhaps it was trialling a top secret stealth coating!

A few more scans I recently done from Dad, this time a selection of 67th ARRS Herc's taken at Woodbridge, May 1979 & a lovely C-130D Skier shot at Greenham, IAT 79.

#133 69-5823 HC-130N 67th ARRS, RAF Woodbridge. This was probably the Squadron's last Hercules to wear this colour scheme before adopting less colourful camouflage & then the bland grey scheme.

#134 65-0962 HC-130H 67th ARRS, RAF Woodbridge. Always loved this scheme, just looked right on a C-130.

#135 65-9826 HC-130P 67th ARRS, RAF Woodbridge. Notice the bird in-corperated in the camo on the tail.
