It should really be moved to the Research forum.  No need to make it sticky as new photos are added almost daily.  It'll be a long time before this one gets stale.

 

What's the point?

 

There are few reference photos topics in the helicopter  subforum about a subject of interest and no one is complaining about the fact that they must not be there.

This sub forum is about jet Modeling and the subject of this topic is weathering of Hornet and other navy jets.

Not sure if anyone else posted this.  Appears that VFA-31 has taken VFA-147's place in CVW-11, at least temporarily while they transition. Interesting they go West and the CAG bird loses the color.

I just wonder who is replacing them in CVW-8.

I know that's dirt/sand, but it sure looks like rust. Weird.

A bottom view of a Rafale, note the fuselage missile is missing a fin, it either fell off is is not there because it may get in the way of the flap:

No, the missile fin is there, it is just an optical illusion because the illumination is so similar.

Here for comparison is other shot of another plane from a similar angle,

And the missile fins are well clear of the flaps, see photo here,

Yea, if you zoom in real close you can see the fin. Also, I don't think its a naval Rafale. A B or C probably.
