I didn't get to see her this time.

But I did see her on CVN-77 Last June (2011) when VFA-213 were the holders, and also at NAS Oceana last September when VFA-103 had just been awarded it - Well chained down!

Re: Here's to us.....Still Rippin' (VFA-11 Super Hornets)

Interesting - both Navy squadrons (VFA-11 and VFA-211) have F models... Most air wings seem to have one squadron with the E and one with the F. Is there a reason for this? Good Point! CVW-1 is unique in this sense, with it being the only Air Wing equipped with two F/A-18F Squadrons. VFA-11 and 211 ...

USAF Herc was scheduled to depart 1245 local for Throckmorton but stayed until 1500 after a phone call to the show to request a later slot. Also, for the number crunchers, it will have been a new airframe as it had recently arrived from Kadena, Japan. Also did a spirited beat up of the airfield on ...

Re: RAF Northolt Photocall Sunday June 13th 2010

I don't know why people are getting so excited about the MC-130 you can see it at RIAT every year, Not everyone goes to RIAT and do they have an ex Kadena aircraft there every year?. Brian Yes, every year they have a 352ndSOG MC-130P/H, which is what 66-0215 is. Most if not all the Mildenhall SOG F...

Re: 2 Niagra and 1 Rock C-130s PIK 15/4/09

Very Nice catch on the Niagara Falls C-130’s, First shots I have seen of the new tail band.

I like how the new markings show the host and the largest tenant unit AFRC/914thAW & ANG/107thAW. Since the 107thARW has now transitioned from the KC-135 to the C-130H now making it an Airlift Wing.

Indeed, a shame Edwards didn't keep her in storage like they have done with 60-0377, until an area is created to preserve her:
