Hello all,

These are my military images from 2014, enjoy!

January saw my first and last sighting of a Royal Air Force L-1011 at RAF Mildenhall, luckily the light was stunning for this arrival and she didn't take Delta! "Ascot 3981" is seen below arriving from Copenhagen Airport on a medivac flight.

Some very interesting rare beasties it has to be said, particularly the Tu-154. Such a shame the TriStar is no more
