Japan Episode 2 x3 JASDF RF 4s from 501st Hikoutai recover Hyakuri 20.08.2018

Monday 20th August 2018

x2 RF-4Es and x1 RF-4EJ Phantom IIs from the 501st Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron recover back to #Hyakuri AB. This was the first morning mission from our week long trip to Japan to shoot these rare birds of the Japanese Air Self Defence Force (#JASDF).

This video was shot from the towers of the peace garden on the east side of the main runways. Hyakuri is a truly magical base to watch and film these amazing jets and their friendly crew.

RAF Mildenhall CV-22 Osprey hover check and departure – 8th June 2018

A CV-22 (08-0050) from the 7th SOG, under the callsign Knife 79, performs a hover check and departs RAF MIldenhall on this lovely early summer’s evening.

Sorry for the fence being in the way but didn’t make it to the viewing platform in John’s Field in time. I did get that gear retraction shot which is what I was after though 🙂

C-5M Super Galaxy (RCH603) makes emergency landing into RAF Mildenhall – 8th June 2018

This C-5 (86-0014) was making the journey from Germany (I think) to Westover under the call sign of Reach 603 when the crew encountered a suspected hydraulic leak in flight over the northern part of the UK. Fortunately for me I was there catch it landing back into RAF Mildenhall where I sat for the remainder of the weekend.
