RCAF @RCAF_ARC

Now here's something you don't see everyday ... Four Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) F-15SGs, based at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, gas-and-go at 19 Wing Comox while in transit to Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, to participate in Red Flag – Alaska 18. #RCAF #Avgeek

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

The Martin-Baker Meteor aircraft is back in action with its first UK test in 8 years at the Company’s test facility in Chalgrove, Oxfordshire. The high altitude ejection test carried out last week was a huge success, pictured here.

Carl and all ...

Is it just me, or are other people not seeing the photos Carl posts?

Not a trace of them. Nary a broken link.

Strange.

I can see them.  Can you see this if you click on the link? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Df-iHKrW4AA49Oz.jpg
If not, it's possible that the link is blocked by your ISP.

As it’s #SelfieDay, it could only be this one. Taken by the brilliant Katsu Tokunaga from the back seat of my jet as Red 10 in 2014 at RAF Akrotiri. Best #selfie ever in my opinion! #NationalSelfieDay #TBT

A DHC-7-150IR to be exact.  Here are some different views showing it in a different scheme:




It would be something different to model.  It originally had higher gross weight and increased fuel capacity. It is used for ice patrol, mapping and other survellance work. It has an observatory dome on top of the fuselage and bubble windows out each side and. A side looking airborne radar (SLAR) can take a continuous picture 50 miles on each side of the aircraft. The SLAR can see the ground or icebergs through cloud and at night. Radar and camera images can be sent to ground stations and CCG icebreakers via an S-band downlink transmitter. A glass bottom bay holds a Zeiss large-format mapping camera to take pictures out the bottom of the aircraft.
