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.

KNTU/NAS Oceana, VA

Post by fire28 »

Dropped into NAS Oceana the other day as the weather was forcasted for no clouds and southwest winds which are prime for Runway 23 Ops. In addition due to the runway at NAS Norfolk being closed the E-2 & C-2 Units are flying out of Oceana as well as a few other places I believe.

First bird to arrive was this USCG Elizabeth City C-27J who picked someone(s) up and headed for St Louis (maybe to pickup some rhinos?)

Nice nice! Do you park at the viewing area and then walk south a bit along Oceana Blvd? Any news if the show is still on (with audience) later this year?

Thanks!

The Entrance to the old Cement Facility has been closed my last few visits so I parked there.

No info on the show unfortunately.
