Sweet :shock:

The Hawkeye head on and the C-160 and E-3 with the sea in the background are just great. Thank for sharing :D

I believe the US has a "small" base at Hato Airport.
So that's why these birds are visiting i guess...

Thanks guys!!

there is a small US base here that can handle about five aircraft at a time. These pics were made over the last half year or so. Its not too busy, you need a lot of patience and luck.

very nice pictures!

Question for the Herky-buffs watching these pix: what subtype is the Idaho ANG one, given all the extra antennae on the main wheel doors and under the tail?

Hopi suerte i pasenshi!
