NAS Fallon - Sept 2013

Post by lozza »

Well I was in the area for Reno Air races so figured it would be rude not to try for a base visit, one phone call before I left the UK job sorted, all I can say is what a superb day out with a massive thanks to the personnel on base for being so accommodating, Top Gun side of things use to be based at Miramar but moved to Fallon some years back, so it was great that the sortie we got to shoot at the end of the runway were students two days before Graduation, no pressure !!

Wow! Very crisp, very different and very jealous. 31 & 51 are my faves but it's all thriller and no filler with the rest of them too. Congrats
