Waddington/Metheringham 24th March 2017

Away day – 24/3/17
RAF Waddington

HS1A4811

My first Away day out of the year was a local trip to Waddington to catch the primer painted E-3D Sentry ZH106, It was good to get back to Waddington’s WAVE for a Bacon Bap and a mug of Coffee on my first visit since the Base re-opened.
A steady stream of arrivals with a Defender AL2, Shadow R1 and a 51Sqn Boeing RC-135 Airseeker doing rollers added to the day. The E-3D Sentry then started up and departed, Returning for a low flypast before leaving for repaint at my old local Manchester Airport.
