Managed to catch the second NH ANG KC-135R today, unfortunately I screwed up with the camera settings and not quite pleased with my own results here. Dark grey tanker on grey background... oh well....

Tonight, actually it was only about 17:00 hrs local, RAF C-130 ZH886 took off in pouring rain... so again it was kind of dark. However, I got to try my OpTech Rainsleeve which arrived here yesterday and it worked as advertised! Really happy with the purchase - thanks to this forum here!

I gave all pictures a quick edit on a laptop but hope they are halfway decent... really wanted to catch that C-130 as we don't get that many in here.

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy, C&C always welcome
cheers

Andy

EDIT: I edited the pictures and re-uploaded them - I think these now look better than the first versions I uploaded.

Thanks Mark! I was certainly surprised to see the RAF Herc sitting on the tarmac and then decided to wait for it's departure. The KC I probably can get again in better weather but the Herc was either "take it or leave it".

Nice pics Andy, just a small point the KC is marked as a New Hampshire a/c.
Which of course doesn't mean it wasn't being used by a TN crew!
Cheers, Chris.(Stig)

Thanks for pointing this out to me Chris, already corrected the mistake... we do actually have NH in here at this moment. Things like that happen when you look at a TN coded KC and then get going uploading the current tankers... sorry 'bout that and again, thanks for pointing that out!
Cheers
