    Ramstein Air Base (RMS/ETAR) 08.01.2016

    Hello,

    early this year on a sunny day we headed for Ramstein Air Base to get some Air Force stuff. My personal highlight was the C-5M Super Galaxy with it's golden morning arrival but take a look for yourself :)

    Have fun with the pics, hope you like it!

    Excellent shots Daniel! That C-40 banked shot(I think it's banked) is superb

    NYC people, how come we never see that RAF Jumbolino during UNGA? Anyone know? Probably not a picnic crossing the pond in that is my guess

    Thank you!

    I think the RAF doesn't use these to get across the Atlantic, maybe they switch to a BA longe-range aircraft but not sure at all. The maximum range of a BAe-146-100 (on which the CC2 is actually based on) is 3000km and the way from London to for example New York City is about 5500km so they need to refuel somwhere. But I don't think they want to.

    Greetings, Daniel
