My Favourites of 2013

Postby RichPittman on Fri 20 Dec 2013, 7:04 pm

Hi all.
A photo review of my Year.
I promised myself to do much more low level in 2013, so January the 15th was the 1st visit
Image

Image

Image

In February I visited Merryfield
Image

Deptford Down in march
Image

A weeks holiday in April to Wittmund to try and get some F4 action before the end later in the Year
Image

Image

Returning home with a few hours on Everleigh DZ
Image

A couple months gap to the Annual Yeovilton Airday
Image

Image

I was happy to catch the Czech Gripen and its nicely painted canards on departure Day
Image

Saving my holiday for later in the Year I only visited RIAT on the Thursday but was really happy to catch the special F1
Image

A visit to Salisbury Plain on the way to Coningsby for the Saudis late August.

Image

Image

Image

I was just as happy to see the Gr4s
Image

In September I visited the Czech Republic for the 1st time.
A small show at Hradec Kralove but the few bits there and the weather made for a great Weekend.
Image

Image

Image

Image

When the news of a spotters Day at Albacete came to light on the forums I booked time off to go.
Always wanted to go to san Javier so I spent the Day there before the TLP
Image

Spanish sea king was 1 of the external assets of that TLP
Image

As well as a Italian Pelican
Image

Image

Image

Spanish Elint Casa212 on the approach to Albacete
Image

The Spanish visit ended with a few hours at Alcantarilla.
The parachute training school operates from there and a grass strip alongside the airfield for practice landings.
This Chinook was Para dropping during the Evening.
Image

I never get bored of seeing this red gazelle
Photo taken on Deptford Down during a training sortie out of Boscombe Down
in November.
Image

Lastly another Wildcat on Deptford during November
Image

Merry Christmas Everyone and here's to 2014!

Cheers Rich

Great range of stuff, but love the Wildcats and the Su-27UB.

Lovely selection Rich, the first two from the Czech show and the final two images from the Plain stand out for me. That Spanish Chinook is a bit special too! :clap:
