On Thursday (18 November) a visit to NAF El Centro was promised. A visit here is always interesting, since you never know what you will get. Officially only two T-34 are based here, but the facility is home to very frequent detachments. Since our visit was scheduled to start at 11 o’clock, we first took a look from the perimeter fence. This confirmed that there were plenty of detachments present, in order to keep us busy. Canadian Hornets, USNavy Hornets, USNavy T-45s, Prowlers, RAF Chinooks, etc. etc. The visit was just brilliant. By positioning our group near the LSO (Landing Signals Officer) booth photography was near to perfect. We were lucky that, apart from what was already there, three Marines Hornets showed up to train their carrier landing skills. All in all we have really enjoyed ourselves with dozens of aircraft at this great spot for a couple of hours. While we were there, 9 USMC AV-8Bs decided to drop in for instance. Feeling very happy we said goodbye to our female guide and we headed West. Along the way we had a look at Yuma, where two former Luftwaffe Alpha Jets came in while we were there. We arrived at the two RF-101s near Gila Bend while darkness had already set in. in order to be able to picture them, the headlights of our vans were employed. We spend the night in Eloy.
