Re: HMS Ocean on the Thames

3 of the 4 Navy Lynx are coded 815 NAS. I would believe the 4th is just a spare cab to joing the other 3. Wondering if the special one would like to visit Northolt Wednesday Night You are of course correct about the codes I was thrown by the BC's cab and one of the others having 702sqn written on t...

HMS Ocean on the Thames

More for the record than anything else but thought I'd share anyway. 7 Lynx visible on deck today, 3 Army and 4 Navy. By the looks of things the Navy ones were all from 702 Sqn with one of the Black Cats special marked aircraft embarked as well. Whilst I was there only one Army Lynx took off but 4 o...

Lakenheath 08/03/12 Mainly Ceagulls !

Before the dash to Stansted I visited the Heath and meet up with Nigel and Mel. Went to a new spot for some different angles I just wish I had a little longer reach on my lens on some of the approaches ! http://www.macksaviation.com/Lakenheath080312/Lakenheath080312_1024_01.jpg http://www.macksaviat...

Turkish Air Force Wedgetail Delivery via Stansted

Thanks to a heads up and a cancelled appointment I managed to get to Stansted just in time Sadly I am no Nigel Blake in low light conditions and standing a top a step ladder made it a little more difficult. Anyway enough of the excuses and 1 shot for now. http://www.macksaviation.com/Wedgetail_08031...

ASCOT 9726 Tornado IFE Mildenhall 15/02/12

Not sure where this aircraft was going off too this morning but there were several Tornado ASCOT flights heard on the radio but didn't hear the destination. ZD792/100 declared a PAN and took the wire at Mildenhall runway 29. Hydraulic Failure was the cause of the PAN. http://www.macksaviation.com/To...

Shooting into the sun from the control tower has advantages and disadvantages though. http://www.macksaviation.com/Duxford010911/Duxford010911_001.jpg http://www.macksaviation.com/Duxford010911/Du...
