Luke AFB Nov 2017

During November 2017, I had two days at Luke AFB. An overcast day 1 led to a better day 2 with wall to wall sunshine. It was interesting to note that some of the early OT coded jets from Nellis and Edwards have been transferred to Luke and are flying with the 61st FS. Also, it was great to bag all 4 Japanese F-35's.

Nice set, the low viz version of the Japanese roundell still isn't great :P

Nicely done but for me, there's probably 2-3 interesting aeroplanes in that lot.... You've bagged 5 nations worth of F-35s which is a great haul but by God they are so boring....
You caaan't trust the system... Maaan!

Agree 100% - 13 of your F-35 shots could be removed from this post and it would be just as interesting. I'm sorry but they are as dull as ditch-water!
