Post by FlankerPhoto »

Thought I'd start a separate thread, for ease.

Foreign participation from Italy, Germany & Spain.

RAF 9211 also stopped at Dover with second wave of Typhoons I believe, as well as a Spanish A400.

I've shot Spanish Typhoons at Red Flag 17-2, but I've never even SEEN Italian or German Euros, let alone Italian F-35s, so I've already booked a hotel for M-Th next week. Anybody sees my car at the Speedway and/or Cheyenne, feel free to say 'hi.'

Looking Forward to this one,as I wish to see the German Tornados, I have seen Tornados in the past but only had the Small lens camera in those days. Now armed with a Tamron 150-600 on a Canon 80D. I`ll be there Su-Fri so 5 day Missions of fun,and will be there just to watch and possibly video some night. See you all at the Speedway.
