This is the first trip to a military field with my new Sony PXW-X160. Starting to get some commendable results I think.
The wind was from the east today so the aircraft were arriving and departing from runway 07.
In this video a C-17 (ZZ171) departs at about 15:00 and an A330 MRTT (ZZ333) arrives at around 17:20. I managed to forget my scanner today, so no comms!
A slightly odd beginning to RIAT for me as I was stuck in Italy after the jet I was flying back to the UK on suffered an inflight emergency. This meant that I missed the first arrivals on Wednesday and arrived late on Thursday!
Anyway, here are the movements I caught on the 16th July.
