NAS Fallon visit November 2016 1500x

Postby Fumbles on Sun 20 Nov 2016, 8:42 pm

I'm back again after another few weeks of travels.. This post will be the first of three which will include Starwars/Jedi transition and Aviation Nation held at Nellis AFB later in the week as I sort through the photos.

This being the first was a base visit to NAS Fallon in Northern Nevada. The base being a 6 hour drive from Las Vegas ensured that the weather was brisk and kept away most heat haze! Some of you will remember that I built an aggressor F-16 model kit for the base PAO Zip Upham... Well I can gladly say that the kit made it in one piece and he really was happy to get it!

Thanks go out to Zip for taking us back on base for a look around. We really did have a great day. :up:


Anyways enough rambling.. On with some shots.
First up was the morning walk around the tarmac before heading out to the runway in the afternoon when the light is better. FYI CAG 8 was visiting.

Thanks for looking and as usual comments and criticism always welcome

Loving those aggressors. One of the superbugs is hauling a SLAM-ER which I have not seen before. Also really like that twilight burner shot.
