I finally found some time to process my pictures from the great 4Aviation trip to Nevada, California and Arizona.

Hereby my El centro collection:
The Canadian send there 410TFS from CFB Cold Lake to El Centro for a three week live-bombing deployment.

A single Osprey from MCAS Miramar came by for some approaches:

At least 7 Goshawks were present:

No less than 9 USMC Harriers for a lunch stop:

No Carrier ops without the Greyhound :-)

Prowler action, VAQ-129 was on training as well. Did they start the training with 9 of these beauties, during our visit only three were present:

Really good pictures. I've often wondered how you can get so close there, however. Seems anyone that goes there always has brilliant access by the rwy. Those Prowler images were really nice, I like the one with the lights in it funny enough, not often you see something like that.
Cheers

Just wanna say, good luck, we're all counting on you...
