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.

Nice to see at least a few Typhoons with squadron markings!

Indeed! I thought they all went the dull way.

12 Sqn is the joint RAF/Qatar AF training unit so they tend to carry full markings. The others are most likely not repainted (yet).

I would tend to disagree Frank I have pictures of the 29 sqdn aircraft from last year or before with no marks so maybe a return to markings,I have seen a picture from after my visit of a 3 sqdn marked up as well,
Happy to be corrected but these are my thoughts thanks for taking the time to look

First time I notice that Typhoon codes have been replaced by numbers (derived from serials 8) )!

In that case you were a bit behind ;-)
This has been going on for a few years already.
