Norwegian F-16s Arrive at North Weald (Sunday Shots Added)

Norwegian F-16s Arrive at North Weald (Sunday Shots Added)

Postby LN Strike Eagle on Fri 07 Sep 2012, 7:30 pm

Terrific afternoon at North Weald today - three Spitfires, two Vampires, two F-16s and a C-130. Plenty more to edit, but they'll be posted next week most likely.

Really nice to meet Richard Grace this afternoon too. Thanks for the chat. :smile:

Feedback on these appreciated again if you don't mind - still adjusting to this new monitor.

Great set, love the shot of ML407 tucking up the gear. Bit disappointed not to see a shot of the 100 year special F-16 in all its glory though.

Very nice Dan. You must have been up the top end when the '130 left as well.

Thanks chaps.

@ Gary - I was indeed. I missed the Vampires (too busy chatting), and positioned myself for the F-16s as they came off the cross runway, so thought I'd try that spot later in the day, especially after Richard Grace told me he was planning a departure similar to his arrival.

@ Dean - Yeah, I should be. I'm assuming you will too? You doing Duxford tomorrow?

Here's a final selection from today:

As A40-BP says, it's "Jumpin' Jacques" from the Hangar 11 Collection. Blue Spitfire belongs to them too.

Some very good shots there.

I was planning on going on Sunday, but unfortunately the friend that I was going with was taken ill.
