Nice set...but note that the HH-60G is actually 88-26109 - and that it has the last four (6109) presented on the nose as 6019... So, it's not just the number-crunchers that are digitally-challenged!

As for mooning on here, is that allowed?

The C130 is a cracker with the HUD's being visible.

C-17 03 is from the NATO Strategic Airlift Capability fleet. Papa refers to the base in Hungary and if you look closely, you can see the Hungarian national insignia on the fin. They have three aircraft altogether - 01, 02 and this one, which I think is the USAF-contributed example.

After all the lessons you've had you still can't get full circle prop-blur! You'll have to book some more.
Great set Robert, a shame I got stuck behind your old aunt and missed the SJ's :lol:

kev

only five came in, the others got a tanker and i think they are home now, yep got each and everyone, i wondered why suddenly being the only person in the FE it filled up within thirty minutes with much chatter going on something special was about to arrive.
blakey missed them as he stopped for the triple double sided eight pound burger with six layers of cheese, this explains his body shape!!!! :tongue:

Thats brilliant Nigel but the bap slowed Rob down so much that the farmer had to much deflection on the target.

Gotta laugh at that - 'A11 95MPH (with a copy of nigels car plates on)'. :lmao:

After the F-15C's landed i went home as i wasn't sure when the C-17 was due plus my photographs were coming out cr*p (must rob bank and get new kit! :whistle: ).

Look forward to seeing your shots of the day. :worship:
