Made a great decision to go down to the Hall on Sunday rather than Saturday, and was rewarded with decent weather, good company and fantastic movements.

I've tried to pick some shots that are slightly different to BOLLOs, but there are inevitably going to be some the same.

First off two Kansas Departures (RCH 874 60-0365 and RCH 567 63-8004 respectively).

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 1-6

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 2-8

Then we had two inbounds, one of which is here (RCH 600 58-0046/ZZ, also RCH 3020 63-8020 not pictured)

Kadena!! Clap

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 3-7

Just waiting for Sam to post his pic of that from the mound!

Two outbounds RCH 2517 62-3517 and SHUCK 80 78-0576, the latter of which is here:

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 41

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! E3

Then another departure, RCH 7035 C-5B 87-0035 "The Spirit of the Blue Hen". After a monumental messup on this, I shot them all underexposed by two stops (How, I do not know!)

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 5-7

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 6-7

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 7-7

Then a zip down to Folly road to catch a faulty Kansas in the sun, as well as a local:

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 9-5

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 8-5

Cheers to Paul for lending me his lens and ladder for those! Cheers

Finally another C-5B arrival, RCH 6017 86-0017. Looking rather tatty!

Bit of a risky landing:

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 14-2

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 15-2

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 10-5

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 11-3

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 12-3

Mildenhall 30/08/09 - Nice and busy again! 13-2

Phew! A lot of pics I know, but it was a fantastic day!

Ben

Thought that 70035 would be salvagable Wink Liking the shots of 60017 arriving aswell, even if he is a bit battered Clap

Really nice pictures - a great selection from obviously a busy day!

The C-5 in the last pictures really looks, well ahm kind of "used".... maybe we should collect some money and send the AFReserve a can of paint as a goodwill gesture Whistle (I fully realize it would take more than just "a can" of paint, though).

By the way, do you have any idea where SHUCK80 was heading to? Just curious.

Cheers
