A few days out in March...

Post by bigcrow »

A few days out in March

Took advantage of the mini heat wave the U.K had last month. First up a day at RAF Brize Norton, the local C-130 fleet were very active.

I attended the rollout of Blackburn Buccaneer S2 XW544 after its five month restoration programme at Bruntingthorpe. A truly memorable day, it was like being in a time warp with the team managing to taxi three Buccaneers, the day will certainly live long in the memory.

At the end of the month myself & Shaggie took a trip over to Wales for a day in the hills, an excellent day with 20+ movements, highlight being ‘Typhoon 28’ on a shake-down flight from Warton prior to being delivered to RAF Coningsby.
