Growler fest in Hornet nest

Post by Ergo01 »

An oral report by my namesake at Beale of the photoday the week before made us hopeful for NAS Fallon. And we were not dissappointed.
These are the results of two very pleasant afternoons in the SW-approach, on April 30 and May 1.
All serials given were taken off photos.

Great list! We were on base on the 26th, and I think you have some additions for us (as I have some codes that I couldn't read the serial). Pitty the 35s were not there on the thursday....

One addition: your F-5F is 761580/20

Hi Hans and Leo,

I am planning for a vacation this summer and hope to be granted a base visit.
If not, can you tell me how is spotting at the fence.
Can you upload some photos?
Did you have problems with authorities?

Thanks Luyt/Lord for giving us directions to the right location.
A farmer came by for a friendly chat. The only person we saw both days.
Place must be scorchingly hot in summer, with sun position in mind I'd not go before 3PM.
Unfortunately P3s and E2s did not fly when we were there.
