Luke AFB airshow 23 March 2024

On the one but last day of the 4Aviation trip to the US we visited Luke Days. The last edition took place in 2018 so it was about time for a follow up. We arrived at the base about 15 minutes before the off-base parking grounds opened. Once opened we had our cars parked in no time. It was quite wind...

Very nice report Peter. I wonder if we will ever see 5th Gen aircraft as colourful as this.
What's the story of those white Navy Seahawks?

Nice piccies though!
edit: just found out through the DB that some ex-Aussies found their way to the RCAF... missed that info :oops:
All the former Aussies have been given these low numbers. Quite handy to identify them.

Davis Monthan scrap yards 22 March 2024

With a few people from our 4Aviation group we decided to pay a quick visit to the scrap yards along Wilmot Road. So inbetween Tucson and Davis Monthan we took a small detour towards said road which lies more or less opposite of the Pima Museum. Apart from a few other types the main occupant of this ...

Davis Monthan AFB 22 March 2024

After the first wave of F-16s had departed from Tucson we drove to Davis Monthan AFB. Main reason was the deployment of Canadian CF-188 Hornets. But off course active A-10s where also very much appreciated. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53743186168_db8ae23b23_3k.jpg A-10_79-0154_USReserves_01 ...

Tucson International 22 March 2024

We started early today because Tucson International, Davis Monthan AFB and for some of us, also the Davis Monthan scrap yards where on the wish list. At 07:30 we arrived at the Tucson fence to take pictures of the three Canadian Top Aces Alpha Jets deployed there as part of a bigger deployment of Ca...

NAF El Centro and Imperial County 20 March 2024

The day after Luke AFB we drove from Phoenix to El Centro for a short visit and then a little bit back towards MCAS Yuma and our next hotel. VFA-122 with their Super Hornets from NAS Fallon was deployed to El Centro and that gave us all the more reason to try our luck here. A US Navy MCV-22B Osprey ...

Kingman and Luke AFB 19 March 2024

The 4Aviation trip took us on 19 March from Las Vegas to Phoenix. Underway we made a stop at Kingman, AZ just to see if there was anything worthwile out there. As it happened we stumbled upon two Canadair CL-215T's from Bridger Aerospace. They were temporarily stationed at Kingman for crew training ...

MCAS Yuma 20 and 21 March 2024

During my trip with 4Aviation we spent the afternoon of 20 March and most of the day on 21 March at the parking lot of the Yuma County Fairgrounds. This spot put us in the landing of both main runways. However since you find yourself in the middle between the runways you have to walk back and forth ...

Re: Travis AFB - Wings Over Solano Airshow 2024

Update on the C-5A 70-0451 that can be seen in the pictures behind the Blue Angels F/A-18 solo and Fat Albert take off. I was made aware yesterday of pictures posted by the Travis AFB Aviation Museum in which can be seen that the Galaxy is in the process of being chopped to pieces. Apparently the mu...

Nellis AFB - Red Flag 18-03-2024

During my trip with 4Aviation we visited Nellis AFB on 18 March. Red Flag 24-2 was in full swing and we spent the day travelling back and forth between the Speedway parking (gate 6/7) for banking shots and Cheyenne Avenue for landing pics. The weather was excellent with mostly blue skies but sometim...

This morning around 09:00 hours an An-124 from Antonov Airlines landed at Gilze-Rijen to pick up two CH-47F's for the Dutch part of the NATO mission in Iraq. A week ago it was UR-82007 that picked up the first CH-47F (D-603) and now UR-82008 (the only An-124 from Antonov Airlines still missing in my...
