One of three squadron CAG birds that participated in the afternoon training mission. Will post the other two soon.

Cracking good shot again. You are indeed fortunate to be able to get closer than a lot of us mere mortals.
Darryl Sarno
Wow! Excellent snap of this beauty! I love your close ups - I can never get that close here so thank you for sharing!

Great History Gary ......

Once again you look like your photo position is on the aircraft carrier !!

Gavin, Darryl, & Ken ... The word "fortunate" is totally incorrect. Anyone here can get just as close; there simply is no one who has the interest. Each of you DO have the interest, so ....
I know the distances between you and I are quite (aka: VERY) far, but I assure you that if it ever becomes possible that one of you is able to get here, I'll get you to these same spots.
TYVM for the complis. (Wave)

Tell you what, I'd never been interested in leaving Oz but with the great contacts I've made through FA had it not been for the coronavirus that was probably going to change. If the opportunity does arise, you may have to stand by your offer - smile.

No wurries. Just let me know when .... (Wave)

Hey Gavin, I live about 5 mins drive from Amberley Air Base, and guess what I don't own a camera. Maybe I should invest in one and get cracking.
Gavin Hughes
Hi Geoff, sounds like a plan.
Robert Oldershaw
Excellent shot.
