Here's another couple, of an F3 being refuelled by a VC10.
They're allowing people to go up on the VC10 while it's doing in-flight refuelling training, which is pretty decent.
The F3s have now been replaced by Typhoons, I'll stick up some pictures when I can.

Sorry it's a bit crap but they're not giving permission to take photos of them in the hangars yet.
It's hard to get photos of them from the ground as they tend to scream past sort of quickly.
Hopefully I'll have some much better shots soon.

Just a couple of pics that I hadn't edited till now. These from LCY back in June.









Hope they are of some interest to some one.

No, the pink R22 is an old friend and the MH53 is on display in Cosford RAF museum.
If you've never been it's well worth popping in if you're anywhere near Birmingham or Oxford.
They've got two full hangers of fully restored planes.
One hanger is full of test prototypes including a TSR2.
The other one is full of everything from Vulcans to F4s

I've got loads more photos from there, they're not the best quality though.

Was just getting up this morning and through the haze of waking heard a helicopter banking near the house. Quick as a flash I pulled up the blinds to see the unmistakable red and white of the Coast Guard and by chance I had my camera to hand managing to fire off a few shots before they departed.

Good old S61.







I posted this a while back but I came across it today and said I'd repost as it's probably my favourite ground shot of an F3.
