Second shot is a pleasing angle.

Thanks for the comments.

Some advice for you all though, get your VERY slow shutter speed panning action practice in!

I believe these two are new builds (SLightly worrying considering how many attempts they had to get over the pond!). Given they are SOG birds I think the markings they are in now will be all they wear.

Mildenhall has never had a base code identifier as it's always housed a/c on a lodger/TDY basis form CONUS units or AFSOC that again very rarely use tail codes. The 100ARW uses "D" as used by the 100BG in WW2.
