Nice pic of the OV-10A!

Do they still have the air races out in Stead NV? That's where I grew up, and my love of aviation started. F-4 Phantoms out of Reno, Reno Air Races, and the yearly Fallon Air Show were my life blood.

I know the sqrn commander for NSAWC (last couple years). He likes to brag that he's the only guy in the Navy that owns F16s. Get to meet with him in Ogden UT every year for the F16 World Wide Review TCG.

Ill see if I can dig up some of my pics and contribute.

They turned up. As mentioned elsewhere on the forum, I did not take these, they were given to me by a photographer at RAF Honington. Sorry, I do not remember his name now, he was a friend of a friend of mine at the base. I checked to see if the same shots were available on the web with Google reverse image, in case he had used or copyrighted them since, but I think it is safe to say they were shots he did not want.

45 Sqd TWCU only, no 15 Sqd.
