Re: NAS North Island 2014

Spent two hours (5-7 PM) at Coronado Beach on May 14, 2014. Almost had no time to swim in the ocean.

Re: Exercise Green shield 2014 @ Nancy-Ochey..

The policy re spotting/photographing in the Ochey approach is understandable with the traffic situation, and much different form Saint Dizier. On both sides dangerous situations will arise with parked cars, distraction of drivers. I've seen a deadly accident happen caused by this, this we wouldn't w...

Hawgsmoke 2014

Date was set for Ascension day late May.
Meanwhile a new (tentative) date is set for beginning of July: see http://hawgsmoke.com/#
This will probably be the last one ever.

Ramstein 21-12-2013

A wet sunday started off okay with C-17, KC-10 and a KC-135.
Thereafter the wind picked up.
This C-17 had to go around, probably due to windshear/ heavy crosswind.
It was the only a/c to get a decent picture of.

Re: ETAR 9-9-2013

The Avanti was slightly early. it was 62204. Thanks for the tip.
It made my day together with another small one (U28 70779).
Getting Dyess Hercs on photo proves difficult as todays load landed before sunrise.
And the place can be utterly boring so we were soon off to beautiful Nancy.
