Wow! what a great few hours of flying.

As the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Public Display Authority (PDA) is this week I was inspired to create this piece titled Supermarine Spitfire Fast Pass, based on a shot of MK356 taken during last years PDA.

As we arrived an RC-135 together with two KC-135s got airborne and that was the start of a very busy day. Several MC-130's departed and ran circuits of the field for most of the afternoon. Although we never caught a glimpse of the Ospreys all day, as the afternoon drew on a armée de l'air KC135 arrived on base
