VP-45 P-8A 168434 Night Shot at Coningsby

Post by dinger »

This very nice P-8A arrived at Coningsby this morning to take part in the annual Air Combat Power Visit. As it was local to me, I decided to have a trip over to see if it was photographable. Thankfully, it was.

Very nice. Is that through the fence near the BBMF hangar?

It is indeed. Quite a tight crop between the C-17 and the E-3D but manageable with perceverence.

I'll have to remember the floodlighting next time I have an overnight thereabouts.
