The 7th SOS were good enough to fly one of there new toys while I was at Mildenhall this afternoon. It lifted, performed two visual circuits and then departed to Sculthorpe. It later returned for a hot re-fuel before departing again. I'm going to enjoy watching these. Strange looking machines and extremely awkward to edit.

You can just about make out the crewman sat on the ramp in this shot.

The scheme on these is, IMO, so much better than that on the USMC ones.

Great shots mate. I like that last one, nice light on them too.

Such a smart aircraft colour scheme is very impressive. Brilliant shots hoping to see one airborne at the weekend :up:
