Cobra Warrior from beyond the fence - 12-09-18

Decided to spend the day at RAF Coningsby on Wednesday starting early at CG1, then around the perimeter to try and get the best of the movements and light. Plenty of movements and a lunchtime interval of PA474 bashing the circuit instead of venturing to Jersey due to the arrival weather.

Great to catch the Germans in town for CW18 and met up with plenty of folk around the base.

Hope you like the selection.

C&C welcome as always.

Giant, yes they flew both sessions although the afternoon was more spread out due to operational exercise variation from morning sorties.

Thanks Sully. Sadly yesterdays trip was severly wind effected. RAF flew 5 jets in the morning but all landed back by 1030, Germans didn't move and the Italians only managed a 2-ship in the late afternoon long after I headed home :sad:

Isn't that just typical of the hobby though, I guess it's what keeps us coming back......
