Legendary low level C-17 Globemaster in the Mach Loop – 7th July 2017

We had two unbelievable passes of the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III through the Mach Loop in Wales on July 7th. I’ve seen some sights through here, but this was a special one.

This is the biggest aircraft ever to do the loop, a record that will be hard to beat. This particular aircraft is from Charleston AFB in South Carolina.

x2 B-2A (MYTEE51 & 52) recover into RAF Fairford 9th July 2017

It was a busy day for bombers on June 9th at RAF Fairford, and was the first time I’d seen (and filmed) all three of Global Strike Command’s heavy bombers on the same day.

These two aircraft were flown from Whiteman AFB, Missouri, visited a bombing range in the UK before recovering into Fairford. These aircraft were 82-1068 Spirit Of New York (MYTEE51) and 88-0329 Spirit Of Missouri (MYTEE52).

The famed B-2 Spirit ‘Stealth Bomber’ entered service in 1997 and they still look absolutely cutting edge to my eyes, despite the fact that they celebrate 20 years in service this year. Happy birthday B-2.
