Re: Luke AFB

Still eleven CF-18s here on the evening of 10th February. If it had been a sunny evening, I'd have read all 11. Alas it was dark cloud and heavy rain. I did manage: CF-188A: 188739, 188760, 188781, 188782, 188786, 188787, plus three (one of which ends in a '2'). CF-188B: 188938. The other is in spec...

And Ken, I read the 'dirty' F-16 as 506. Anyone else care to give an opinion?

Re: Paris 14th July 2019 quatorze juillet/Bastille day defil

Super list, and so quick too. Thank you. One correction, a typo I'm sure - the Spanish KC-130 was coded /31-53.

Re: Yuma (KNYL/YUM) 2019 MIL

Thank you to K2G for his excellent list.
But I think a couple of the MV-22 codes listed are wrong. We visited Yuma on the evening of 23 March (after Davis-Monthan show) and read 165847 as YK-09; 168671 as PF (couldn't read modex) and 168674 as PF (couldn't read modex).

Re: Red Flag 19-2 players
