The Weeks weather wasn't great, the majority of these photos were taken on Thursday.
The mission on Wednesday was cancelled due to the helicopters not being able to provide CSAR capability due to high winds.

Cheers Rich

That's excellent! So sad they moved to Spain, it was nice to have it close to home here in Belgium.

Nice post.

Good to see the F.1s still on the go.

Nice catch with the French E-3, didn't realise they had retractable refuelling probes.

It isn't retractable, they took them off, and capped it.

Cheers, BK1. My first thought was that it was removed. Have they removed them from all their E-3s? Seems a strange thing to do given its role, I would have thought the ability to extend endurance would be a key operational consideration.

Brilliant shots Rich. Frames 2 and 9 of the F-15C are stonkers, and looking great at 1200px too. :cool:
