    US Marine AV-8B "Harriers" stop over at Pease

    Hey Guys, I know I have been away for a while, but these are some shots from Pease NH ANG Base of a group of "Harriers" that were on their way home back to Yuma, AZ. They came in and left as "Cube Flight 21", flight of 6







    A KC-10A from McGuire was the lead support tanker back to Yuma

    Departing runway 34 at Pease




    And a KC-135R from McConnell AFB brought up the rear as the second tanker

    Sweet collection. Pease is such as nice place to spot military... wish McGuire was as friendly and accessible.

    Thanks Mark and Manny! All but three of these photo are taken through a chainlink fence, but its very do-able.

    Very nice shots. I have been wanting to make it up to KPSM for ages. I love Harriers especially right after they land after a short landed and cut the power.. OH MAN!!....Lucky you :)

    Nice! You didn't happen to be out there about 3 week ago (Satuday, April 11th)? There were a few spotters by the fence snapping pics as we taxied by and took off!

    Used to fly there in the DC-3 all the time you have to love a runway that's 300' wide and 11000 ' long !!!
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    I have heard it was a diversion point for the Space Shuttle. I would love to see a DC-3 come in there for a landing....

    I think you left before I arrived? the two tankers I photographed were Blue 72 KC-135R McDonnell and Gold 41 KC10A McGuire

    It's possible.. I was on tail 70118 - we saw a bunch of photographers standing by the fence on our taxi out to 34..

    FWIW - The 135 and 10 you photographed were most likely not in the same package (different callsigns (one eastbound/one westbound)).
