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.

Fairford 03-08-20

Visiting from Holland the first stop was Fairford. With the U2 normally departing around 0900 we were just on time (we thought). Finally, just after 1300 the U2 started up, and after some hours waiting, it was more than worth it.

In that case, Beale AFB might be worth a visit (after the COVID-19 travel ban is lifted).

When I visited it flew almost daily from 0930 untill 1700, but I dont know how it's now. You should check the Fairford topics at Fightercontrol.
