Current Tour Programme
USA: Pensacola & Nellis (227814)
2nd - 12th November
The US Air Force recently announced that the 2018 Nellis Airshow was cancelled. In a change to our original itinerary whilst we will still attend the Blue Angels Homecoming Airshow on NAS Pensacola, visit the National Naval Aviation Museum and the US Armament Museum on Eglin AFB but replacing Nellis will be 1½ days at the ‘Father Crowley Lookout’ atop Rainbow Canyon! Here we will capture the low flying, high speed jets streaking along the “Jedi Transition” low level route. In Tucson, Arizona there is Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson ANG, AMARG, various boneyards and optional flights around AMARG and Marana; and spend the best part of a day outside the busiest airbase of them all: Luke, with its 170 F-16's and 55 F-35's (windscreen tour of the ramps requested). A great tour and a perfect was to finish your aviation year.
BRAZIL: Cruzex 2018 (227841)
16th - 23rd November
After several years absence the largest gathering of fighters in South America is back on: CRUZEX 2018 is go! Currently participating from South America are: Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador and Uruguay; plus Sweden, Portugal, Canada, France, the UK and the USA. All will be sending fighters (and refuellers and support aircraft) to what is the largest flying exercise held on this continent. We will be there for ‘arrivals day’ plus 4 more full days at Augusto Severo AB in Natal, Brazil. We await confirmation of our request for on-base access (and in Recife). We also spend one full day at Recife-Guararapes/Gilberto Freyre International Airport and airbase, from where the tankers and support aircraft will operate. This is a perfect opportunity to see and photograph various fighter-types of South American air forces.
