Nice. Every time I’ve seen that jet go from 06 it’s been a pretty tame departure.
Cheers.
Was anything but tame on Monday. Kept real low and then pulled up steep before banking over to give us a cracking topside. In my case it was the red tail that never did anything exciting each time I saw it.

Reaper Topsides - Heritage Jet Included

Not very busy at the Heath on Monday but the 493rd did treat us to a few tasty 06 topsides. 1. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50189405698_22d843ab77_o.jpg 84-0010/LN F-15C 493rd FS/48th FW USAF by KING COBRA 92 , on Flickr 2. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50189950321_4d78f85e56_o.jpg 84-0...

Good shots!
Just a shame the subjects all look the same regardless of unit, airforce or nationality.

Back in my day .... :sleeping:
At least the Italians had some tail markings to distinguish the unit but I know what you're saying.

Typically the sun went as they were on short finals.
Always the way. :rolling_eyes: Did you go back for them today?

I'm starting to come round to the F-35, but they'd all be a lot better with coloured markings on them.
Sadly not. Had to work this afternoon. :(

Mama Mia! Tuesday at Marham - the day the Italians came to town.

A profitable day at Marham on Tuesday with the arrival of three Italian AF F-35A from 32 Stormo. Typically the sun went as they were on short finals. :( 207 and 617 added to the action. 1. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50140055363_2597cd4b10_o.jpg ZM149 ZM147 DOOM 11 FLIGHT F-35B by KING COBRA...

Cambridge visitors 7th July 2020

Main reason for the visit was to catch the Blue Angels C-130 but a few visitors helped while away the time before the main act. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50093820701_5905083b38_o.jpg 2-SALE DIAMOND DA62 by KING COBRA 92 , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50093243433_39b7e9ce8a...

Fat Albert and Friends at Cambridge 7th July 2020

Popped over to Cambridge in the hope of getting a shot of the Blue Angles' new C-130J. Rewarded by a couple of shots of her on the compass platform. Light could have been better though. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50092842768_1112649e7d_o.jpg 170000 C-130J USMC by KING COBRA 92 , on Flickr h...

Re: RIAT 2001

Nice set. For some reason I didn't do the 2001 show although I did go up on the Monday to see some of the departures. Maybe I'll find the slides I took that day and get them scanned. IIRC I shot them on medium format - a bit of an expensive exercise.

A Grand Day Out - 20th June 1994 - Cottesmore, Waddington and Cranwell

Hi, The Swiss were at Waddington so we set off for Lincolnshire. Went by the way of Cottesmore to see if we could get any departures from the Saturday's Families Day and came back via Cranwell as we'd heard a couple of French Magisters were due. Light could have been a lot better but what the heck, ...

It was a glorious sunny day that bought the usual problem of shooting into the sun for much of the flying display so most of my shots are of the static.
