Whoa, you can tell that was a while ago. Two digit side number, Luneburg lens on the side. Pre AS12 days I guess as crewman sitting in left seat and no M260 sight sticking out the top perspex panel.
Are they Crab Belvedere's on the stern?? I'm guessing, Albion or Bulwark!!
The Old Grey Ghost, yes Belvederes being shipped out of Aden back to Singers, Jumbo's doing guard duty!
I want to know what’s on fire on finals????
Hot stuff old slides you know, been around the world a couple of times getting tired in their old age, it was the tropics after all.
