Had a superb day with 150 others from all over Europe, as the guests of the Portuguese Air Force and Base Aérea Nº 11
Beja for the spotters day of exercise Real Thaw 2016. Day started with some mist but that soon burned away. Fantastic flying in an action packed day Many thanks to the Portuguese Air Force and the Real Thaw 2016 team.

Kev

Wonderful set, truly stunning, my favorite has to be the low C130, remember somebody else who used enjoy that sort of flying back in 1980, 1990, at EGSH!

Very nice collection! :clap: I thought the Belgians always took the low Herc trophy but it would appear the home team gave some serious competition! :hide:

That Portuguese Herc was early getting the gear up.
