Naval Aviation (no, not navel ;-) )

Thu 25 Jun 2015, 5:38 pm

Not totally sure if this theme has been covered, had a quick scoot through the last few pages and couldn't spot anything obvious.

So , let's see any naval aviation pics that you may have, and don't hog it with those who have been fortunate enough to go on carrier deployments (I'm not impressed..........actually I am, just very jealous :lol: )

Here's a handful from me :-

Lossiemouth July 1968 - 736 Squadron

Image

Cecil Field November 1974 - VA-174's Executive Officer's aircraft...back when US Navy aircraft really looked the business... Pristine external condition and colourful unit insignia on all squadron aircraft, not just the 'boss bird'.

Italy, anyone?

One of just three Avantis operated by the Italian Navy - They look so much meaner than their Air Force counterparts:
