Excellent effort in the conditions, Rob. First two are great, with the second highlighting just how much more character the F-15 has! :biggrin:

Gotta say the F-15 is much better looking, it's a lot neater, there's something untidy about the Raptor.............

Hi Ade,

Thank you for you kind comments. Some of the pictures were taken from the viewing area and some from the forest gate entrance. If you turn right out of the viewing area then right at the traffic lights approx 300m on the left there is a small dirt track you can pull in there but do not park past the gate as it is private property.

Great stuff. The foreground Eagle and the line-astern taxiing shots being the pick of the bunch there IMHO.
