UK Lowfly


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

In the past few years I have honoured to witness some excellent lowfly from the guys and gals of the USAF, and in turn they have recommend that I share some of the snaps with you here. 

Keep up the great work, and if you are ever in the position of planning a lowfly sortie in the UK and would like some high quality photos then drop me a DM and hopefully we can sort something out.

Discretion assured, many thanks for looking, enjoy the photos.

Too bad they don't fly 135's or B-52's through mach loop.
 

It’s not for lack of trying; maybe the BUFFs need a new plan of attack (other than R), but USAFE was not game for it the last few times they were in the UK.

Anyone know why the boom would be down? Figured it would be up for a performance, but I’m not a tanker guy.

It's extended, not "down;" and it's extended because the crew got overly excited! 🤣  🤣   🤣

Definitely down and retracted.

The boom is usually down for an air show pass in the big tanker. Not sure about the little guy there.

Err, haven't you seen SECDEF's new priorities...?

COVID > War with China > Russians hacking critical domestic infrastructure

 Sounds about right.

Roundabout, are you the ex AF fighter guy that recently wrote a book and retired in England?  Curious (more like jealous) about your decision to retire there.  I know there is a retired Navy F-4 Mig killer that retired to St. Andrews and owns a B&B.
