Hi all,

Had a run over to Marham to catch the 2 Mirage 2000's arriving after a mornings sortie. Then took a drive over to the hall and within 15 mins of arriving the Turkish stars C130 departed.....

Fantastic images - that C130 is a beaut. What was it doing over here?
And wouldn't a couple of those Tonkas look great in the same camo as the Mirages!

"Wow",gorgeous stuff lads.That C130 is sheer Turkish Delight :grin: :clap: ,great light and angles on it.The joys of the mound spring to mind there.
The mini tour of the region has paid handsome dividends with a pair of great catches in the form of your 2000 shots.
I think you must have a first though with the C130,as I don't think even the keenest of spotters bar a handful on these shores will have togged the lovely new paint job :dummy: :tongue:
Keep the good work up and look forward to the next instalment on here of your travels.. :up: ..J7
Don't say something crass, to hide your envy. Just give credit, when its applicable...
