MCAS Yuma, October 2011

Thu 15 Mar 2012, 9:34 am

Spend 2 days outside MCAS Yuma, and was lucky enough to get a tour inside as well. The Weapons Tactics Instructors course was ongoing at the time, and that resulted in all the types from USMC was stationed at MCAS Yuma for the exercise :rock:

One of the best sets of pics I've seen on here, everyone super sharp and great light.

The 2nd F5 and 2nd C130 shots stand out.

US Army I would imagine, they have a couple of examples.

Cracking set of images, love the F-5's and Prowlers :clap:

Thanks for all the comments, I'm glad you like them :smile:

I'm not sure why the Hind was there, as far as I know it's civilian operated, and has some kind of adversary role in the WTI, but I'm not sure. Unfortunately it didn't fly while I was there, even though the engine was running for like 20-30 minutes at some point, but then it was turned off. And I couldn't get closer to it, so I don't have any other photo's of it, unfortunately :sad:

Thanks,
Søren
