Red Flag 17-1, NAS Fallon, Rainbow trip *Large Post*

Well I've been away on various trips yet again. The post for this trip was at the tail end of January leading into the first week if February. I met up with a bunch of friends who flew over from the UK and it was one heck of a road trip! We covered Nellis AFB for Red Flag 17-1, Coyote Summit, NAS Fa...

Re: UKAR in 2017: What For The Future?

but perhaps we could split the "overseas events" area and have a European sub-section that covers shows and exercises that people like to travel to, perhaps a US section and then a "rest of the world" section too? Any interest? I do like that idea Dan.. Some really big shows fro...

QF-4 Retirement ceremony at Holloman AFB sneak peak.

December 21st 2016... I was fortunate enough to visit Holloman AFB in New Mexico for the very last QF-4 flight. The day with sadly a heavy back lit overcast made photography very difficult. But just being there for the event was worth the long trip. The day was to consist of a four ship doing a few ...

Re: Aviation Nation, Nellis AFB 2016 in 1500x

Were we at the same show? How did you get non-backlit shots on numbers 8, 9, 11, 12? I guess I would have to disagree on the clouds. If anything, they helped the horrible backlit conditions by making the light more flat. Great set of shots! Sorry for the delay.. Yeap those shots were taken outside ...

Aviation Nation, Nellis AFB 2016 in 1500x

Hello again! Many many thanks for the comments on my post about our latest trip to NAS Fallon during November! Today I've created a photo album about Aviation Nation 2016. The show had some heavy cancellations like the ER-2, Supper Guppy, F-104 and a last minute Mig-21.. The show pulled in some heav...

Re: F35 Lightning II RNLAF action in the desert..

Good to see you again Peter on the Bus at Nellis main gate! I had a feeling the 35 was going to make a run through the canyon on Monday after the show. But sadly I had to fly home that day. Excellent set of shots you have here! :up:

Re: 1:144 Scale GB

Hey guys... I'll be fully honest here... I think what killed any mojo for me here in the 1/144 build... I started out with much enthusiasm but once I ran into snags on just the X-29 and the Tiger Typhoon kits. I realised I just could not get the results of a built kit that I wanted! Sure the two kit...
