Re: 111 Combat Wing, Nea Anghialos, Greece

Great stuff, I notice that all the serials have been erased from your shots was this on instruction of the HAF?

Re: VMFA-232 Miramar 1996

Looking at these last night they rekindled my own memories of a visit to Miramar, then I noticed the year. I checked my own pictures this morning and if I'm not mistaken you were there in October with Midland Aviation Tours (Graham Beasley), the same tour as me?

The extra F-18E/F's are to replace the oldest of the F/A-18A's nothing to do with the F-35 procurement.

Re: RAF Leuchars - the local paper says . . .

On a brighter note, the Runway is staying open as a diversionary! The Dundee Courier and local radio has mentioned 600 troops to be based, do those 2 units only have that number? Arabest, Geoff. The numbers seem a bit low for two units if both are at full strength. I had the RSDG's at one of my cam...

Re: Sea King: Britain's Flying Past - BBC 2 28/02/13

What is the correct local pronouncation of Culdrose? I would say Cul-drose, but it may be like the Covesea lighthouse at Lossiemouth which should actually be pronounced Cow-sea.

Did it, I watched about 90% of the program and I didn't hear the mention of the biggest rescue mission ever carried out in UK waters that being Piper Alpha, infact very little mention of the RAF throughout.

As well as 13 Sqn.

Even back in 1993 it is clear to see the start of the draw down of Sqns, with 15, 16 and 20 all gone from frontline service.

EC-331 was it's serial while it was registered with Airbus Military. What I would like to know is why these a/c aren't configured to the same spec as the Australian and UAE versions, with the Boom transfer system as well as HDU's?
