Our 'resident' C23s. Out for engine runs several times.

Image

Image

Then, after several false etd alarms - 'Eureka' - even managed to be at the right end when they gave them Runway 21.

94-0310 'PAT 618'.
Image

Image

There were three of the Js in, two got organised around 1000.

130616 ready to taxi, cloud covered the sun for that.
Image

...and the very same for 130609
Image

Image

Navy 500 arrived (with ZH838 but missed that one).
Image

Image

...and Navy 178 came out for some training.
Image

ZH887 overshot on Rwy30.
Image

Avalon 31 came in for a quick g & g.
Image

This rare bird also arrived but far too late, light fading rapidly as it was on finals. 450D ISO up to 1600 :roll:
Spar 89 for rwy 12.
Image

...also got Jalop 92 in for fuel.
Image

Image

Finally, two RAF i30 C5s in for the week (TDY exercise and operated as 'Judgement Formation')
Image

ZH880
Image

ZH870

'Ascot 2427' arrived in heavy rain but the departure was blessed with some lovely Wintry Sunshine.
ZZ333 'First Visit'.
Image

Image

...and up like a typhoon :shock:
Image

Thanks for looking :) .

Fabulous pictures! What an eclectic selection. Loved them all, but the last one is classic, Voyager, AN124 and Ryanair 737's all in focus.

Would love to spend a week there, looks great for photography. Are you on a mound/hill over looking the fence, or is it a steps job?

Thanks for posting these...

Have the C-23s left yet?

Probably the last chance to see them on this side of the Atlantic, or ever!

Hi, one C23 still here, they bring it out of the hangar every other day for some checks/engine runs then is put back in. Surely it should be heading home soon? :smile: .
I hear these two were working with the UN in the Sinai area. Nice badge just above the main undercarriage....Thanks for all the comments....Michael.

Thanks Michael, great shots too.

Always like seeing what pops into that corner of Scotland. Both were on their way back from the Sinai MFO and are heading for "semi-flyable storage," which I suspect is US Army slang for retirement.
