Remarks:Reach 061 makes an awesome climbout from Cairns' RWY15 on an overcast morning preparing to escort a group of USAF F/A-18E's from Townsville to Atsugi Naval Base in Japan. This aircraft arrived the morning before from Hickham and is now heading for Guam after a 1 night stay. By far my best catch in Cairns so far! [1400px]
Remarks: The Great New England Air Show 2012. Three-holers are becoming more and more rare these days. So, it was fantastic to visit the cockpit of this KC-10. Many thanks to the friendly crew for the opportunity.
