The year started with a trip to RAF Mildenhall for an air to air refueling mission with 100th ARW

In March I was fortunate enough to fly with the Portuguese Air Force Academy DHC-1 Chipmunks

The second day in Portugal was spent with Escuadra 101, flying the TB-30 Epsilon.

I was invited to fly with the Slovenian Air Arms Helicopter Squadron during an exercise with the Hungarian Air Force in June. Unfortunately the exercise got cancelled. Cerklje ob Kriki proved to be a good alternative.

Final trip of the year; Bulgaria. Old russian hardware...nice!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year for you all!

Love the Mil photo, but can't grumble at any of them. What engines do the Chipmunks use, anyone know?

Marvellous selection but those Chippies are the favourites :smile: - didn't know they were still on the military strength anywhere in Europe.
Listen to that Gipsy music.....
