'Fraid I'm not sure what squadron this one belongs to...pretty sure she's a legacy Hornet, though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'll move the pic to the correct thread.

Definitely a Legacy Hornet ...

The birdslicers, LEXs and wings are give-aways from that perspective ...

Nice shot, BTW ...

Are Australian hornets acceptable? A while ago my model club went to the Wangaratta airport/air museum and we were treated with a visit from an RAAF hornet. We could pretty much walk right up to it (though not under it, the pilot was a little sensitive about that). I took loads and loads of photos, here are some of them.

:banana: Nice to see a 77 Sqn bird in here. Perhaps our friend Motty might post some of his pics of 2 OCU birds here also.

:whistle:,

this may be a long shot request but does anyone have a pic of the blue angel solo that does the low high speed take off, taken just as the landing gear is on it's way up? i know there are pics, a great one here, of a hornet in transition, but i wanted to see just how low the solo is when he's sucking up his gear so i can display a model like that. thanks in advance.

Bill
