Any BuNos for them please? FYI, NG103 is likely an F model too if NG100 and NG107 were.

Just checked my pictures; there was no 103, it was a blurry shot of the 107.
For the 304 the number is 169740
For the other jets I need to do a bit of Photoshop magic once I’m back home.
I’ll make sure to post them at a later date.

Just checked the BuNo on the other 2 jets. Unfortunately the pictures of the F-18F NG 107 are all angled not exposing the BuNo, however on F-18F NG 100 CAG bird - the BuNo is 166078

Thanks JJJ,

I suspect that the NG100 CAG bird is actually 166876?

Is 169740 definitely NG and not NE?

Have you posted your pictures anywhere?

Many thanks

Hi Mark,

You're right - the 304 is NE.
And the BuNo on the CAG 100 could well be the number you mentioned; in the picture I have, trying to distinguish the number proofs to be challenging. Bad weather conditions and grey on grey...
Have send the pictures to Scramble for posting - will post them myself too - will let you know that is done.

Were you there alone?

I am trying to find photos of aircraft going through in recent weeks but have found none so far. Anyone else found recent photos?

A friend went last week and a few Hornets / Growlers flew over the top, but none went in.

Seems quite exceptional still that they "go down"...
