Re: Army Kubinka 2019 *updated*

Here are the shots from the 2 departure days, pretty much everything that was on static departed except the bombers as I've mentioned, the An-148 & we missed the Il-76MD90A as well. Weather was very good on the most part as you'll see & there was some lovely surprises as well, especially the...

Army Kubinka 2019

Earlier in July I went to the arms forum called "Army" at Patriot Park just outside of Moscow. I spent most of my time at Kubinka Air Base but if I'm honest I went mostly for departure days mainly to catch what I call the aviation holy trinity, the Tu-22M3 "Backfire," Tu-160 &quo...

My efforts from Radom 2018

So this was a pretty good show I reckon, shame it wasn't quite as good as it could've been but I'll take it any day especially when there's a Su-25 on show 1. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1872/29631698157_332ec71847_b.jpg Orlik display team by Dan Reeves , on Flickr 2. https://farm2.staticflickr.c...

Re: 2018 Yeovilton Air Day

Hi everyone, I'm looking at doing departures on the Sunday, can anyone recommend a good spot please? I've heard of the sheep field & I presume that's the field on the other side of the river? First; I'm not sure when the access restrictions are lifted but I'd imagine the area will still be diff...

Re: RIAT 2018 discussion

Anyone seen/heard a Mig-21 before? I haven't seen one yet and would like to know how loud it is, having done Bruntingthorpe a few times and seen the Draken, the old turbojets sure bring a different type of noise with the bang as the reheat kicks in. They aren't as loud as you think they might be gi...

For me it's probably this B-2A launching right at the start of the Andrews AFB air show. Shame the light wasn't brilliant but I guess you can't have it all

Thanks for the tips guys, I will grease up and drink lots (maybe some water too). One/two further question, on the showday itself where is best to position for photography (crowd left/right/centre - any good spots you would recommend?), if there is such a prime spot do you need to stake it out and ...

Last set from me from the tour of the US, there were a few museums as I well but I'll leave those on my flickr pages. This base is right up there with the best base I have ever visited, so much variety from just the home team but & a couple of nice visitors rocked up as well 1. https://farm5.sta...

Davis Monthan AFB & Tucson ANGB spotting

We got to Davis Monthan pretty early in the morning & we were rewarded by a P-3C going to the Boneyard & an Arizona ANG F-16. It then went very quiet for a while & then we worked out why. The A-10's all took off away from us & then the wind changed direction & they also landed aw...

The second part of the tour to the US saw us leave the north east & travel down to the south west & first stop was Luke AFB near Phoenix Arizona. The weather was very un-English with 35 Degree temps & clear blue skies all day long. There may have been only 2 aircraft types on show but th...

The day after we did the NAS Oceana air show we did half a days spotting by the approach at NAS Oceana, endless Hornets to be expected but some really nice surprises as well, chief among which was an AC-130W from Cannon AFB I believe. Unfortunately hurricane Jose was still pretty close by so low clo...
