Typhoons with an added Wildcat - RAF Coningsby 29.11.23

Post by Mfoster »

With a couple of days of Annual Leave to use up before the end of the year, I decided to take a day trip to RAF Coningsby to see the Typhoons, spent the morning down by the traffic lights at the 25 end as well as the edge of the field near the Bravo Taxiway. I then moved around to Reedham Lane in the afternoon to catch the second wave of jets.

Was really lucky to see each of the squadrons flying and even more lucky (I think anyway) to see a marked up jet from each of the squadrons. A nice number of PTOs as well as low approaches and always a few friendly pilots!

We also were lucky to see a Wildcat (Gangster73) that had been working Donna Nook on Flare Trials which landed on the 25 threshold and then taxied back past me along Bravo

Enjoy!
