Defence School of Aeronautical Engineering visit at RAF Cosford 25th April 2019.

Defence School of Aeronautical Engineering – Visit at RAF Cosford 25th April 2019 with Treshold.aero.

I booked a tour to picture airframes present in use & stored at the DSAE at RAF Cosford. I choose late morning tour at 11:30AM to give me plenty of time to travel from Coningsby. I arrived at 10: 20 AM at the Car park at Cosford ,checked in then with 50 other people and two guides from the RAF we departed by Coach around the School hangars, lots to see Jaguar’s, Tornado’s, a few Harrier’s, four Sea Kings , four Jet Provest’s and lots more.
This was a well organised trip, The first time I have used Treshold . aero  but it will not be the last.
I have posted a log of airframes that I pictured on the day, This is not a log of all the aircraft seen on the trip.
