Ramex Delta did some orientation work around the field before running into break as a three ship. I shot some lovely footage of these guys later in the day on their practice display – coming later this week I expect.

I was browsing through some older vids in my back catalogue the other day and came across some older footage of C-5Bs and the unique sound of the old TF39. This sound only exists on videos like this now, so it seems like my duty to get this sound back out there, because otherwise it’ll be gone forever!
Each of these engines produces around 25 tons of thrust. The uprated CF6 on the C-5M produces 22% more thrust than the old TF39, but is 98% less interesting to listen to in my humble opinion 🙂
These clips were shot at RAF Fairford in 2012 and 2014 during the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) and during peace-time ops supporting a bomber deployment to the base.
Enjoy the sound of these wonderful engine in full chat.
Two B-2A Spirit Stealth Bombers recover back to RAF Fairford in stunning light during their Bomber Task Force Europe deployment on 29th August 2019 under the call sign MYTEE11 and 12.
The first part of the video captures an engine test on the ramp at RAF Fairford, and we were lucky enough to get both of these jets returning at the same time and go into the overhead for a break to land. At the end of the video both jets opened up their bomb bay doors, and I managed to catch this at 9:06.
It’s awesome to see these iconic jets in person and such a privilege to have them back in the UK again. On this day they hooked up with RAF F-35s from Marham for integration training and a photoshoot over the south coast.
