6 Squadron's designated aircraft

6 Squadron's designated aircraft

Postby Ian A.S. on Fri 04 Jun 2010, 8:54 pm

A few photos showing my first viewing of 3 Typhoons working up together prior to formation later this year of 6 Squadron at Leuchars

EB - ZK304

Image

EC - ZK 305

Image

ED - ZK 306

Image

All 3 closely grouped for take off

Image

Unfortunately during its mission , EC had a problem with its refuelling probe and hastened back to base, with probe extended , brake chute and precautionary fire tenders

Image

A couple more from Coningsby 04/06 - the F.15 duo

Image

Finally - any excuse -3 Typhoons in one frame

Image

On a separate note later this p.m. - the BBMF Lanc was on jacks with engineers working to get the undercarriage gremlin sorted to return servicable for a heavy weekend bookings.

Cheers

Hi Ian,

Nice stuff there. I've only just started after getting back home last night. I shot a few more than I thought!

6 Sqn went off as a 3 ship first thing on Wednesday too. Love the F-15 pair. The mound is the best pace to shoot from in my opinion when the wind is right.
