Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Yah, the Navy isn't known for using gloss paint too much these days. Add the paint to a brand new bird and she looks great. She hasn't even been out here a month yet.

Note to people that want to try and see the Osprey: A year or so ago the Navy had an open house to talk about the Ospreys coming to North Island. I asked one of the Navy people where the Ospreys would be flying, would they fly the helicopter routes (mainly over SD Bay) and use OLF Ream, or would they fly the C-2 routes? The answer I got was that OLF Ream was too crowded with H-60s, they would do their training more to the east, or at Pendleton. He also said that they would fly the Osprey like it was a C-2, meaning up the beach for landings on Two Nine (which makes it much easier for me since I can walk to the beach). This is the first Navy Osprey at NASNI, but VRM-30 is supposed to get a dozen, plus another 6 for the RAG.
