ZH103 @ RAF Waddington, 12.05.21

Recommended Posts

In a previous life I had the good fortune to secure an exercise flight in an E3-D in Cold Lake, Canada.  It was an awesome flight with Combat Air Patrol (protecting the E3-D (High Value Asset or HVA)  which were directed by the guy I was sitting next to onto some 'red' guys coming at us!  The adrenalin rush stayed with me for the rest of the day!!

Fabtastic shot Jon, the pylons holding the radome look incredibly fragile head on

 I went up to the flight deck and when I asked about survivability of the E3-D the Captain indicated that if things get too hot, they just run as fast as they can. There is a chance the radome will shear off in such a case but apparently it is designed for that eventuality. 

Great photo @jonf45 .




No. No, Mav, this is not a good idea.

Sorry Goose, but it's time to buzz the tower!
