Well, i've done WWII aircraft and US Navy so i may as well do USAF. I don't know if i'll do a full tour or just till i get bored Confused . Anyway here's the first trip in what i think is the most awesome aircraft Boeing ever designed and built the almighty BUFF.

Before start at Nellis AFB Nevada in the B-52

Environmentally friendly this ain't

Those eight powerhouses push us into the sky and take us to cruise alt

Nice model this, it's got wrinkly skin like me Smile

Nevada gives way to greener climes

On approach to Boeing field in Seattle

With the spoilers the braking chute is deployed

Down safe, time to plan the next Very Happy !

Great looking Stratofortress, one of the greatest aircraft in aviation history and it's still in use today.

Thanks everyone for your very kind comments! Very Happy
Cheeks the scenery is FS Global with Flight One Ground Environment.
Razgr1z912, don't know if i'll be able to get there this time! Sad

Right, Alaska it is then Smile wonder what it'll be this time Confused Let's take a look through the big square doors.

The B1-B Lancer should do the job nicely for the 1,400 mile trip (roughly).
Full afterburner and climb out

Cruising to Alaska

On the way i tried some low level at 100ft but i was'nt happy with the shots so i ditched them, so on approach

Welcome to Alaska (wonder if i'll say that everytime i land Rolling Eyes )

Shut down

Thanks for being so kind gents Very Happy , but i don't like them at all Sad . But i do like a few on this next lot! Very Happy
It's time to pay some respect to the unsung heroes of the tanker fleet so we leave Alaska...Brrrrrr.....for sunny Hawaii Cool in an MD-11.
Starting up outside one of the Coast Guard hangers at Kodiak USCG Station

Set up and ready to roll

Gear up

Climbing out of Alaska

Cruising at about the halfway mark

Honolulu comes into view

Nearly there

Whoa boy, i know i've got the auto-brakes on but that's ridiculous Smile oh nearly forgot, welcome to Hawaii Very Happy

Anyone know any cheap tyre fitters? Shocked

Thank you for your comments gentlemen Very Happy !
Sticking with the tanker theme we could'nt go without mentioning the classic KC-135R which we'll be using today for our flight to Tokyo. Razz
Just to show we really are in Hawaii Smile

A long taxi to the active

Thought i was going to run out of runway, this thing needs a lot of it.

Turn back over the city to intercept our course to Tokyo(or just to show this nice scenery i found at Flightsim Laughing )

At cruise Alt

The view an incoming thirsty fighter would have

As we crossed the Pacific,darkness fell

On approach to Haneda (honest Smile )

Touchdown (after a missed approach Embarassed )Good job lolo's not in the Air Force she'd probably have something to say about that Shocked Very Happy !

Welcome to Japan Very Happy

Thanks, i think that's a compliment Confused i do have a rough plan but as i stated at the start of the Lancer flight i don't think i'll be getting to Baltimore Sad ,sorry!

Those are great shots Welsh but I thought you'll more or less stick to the air force bases so just in case you don't come up with an idea where to fly here's the list of all U.S. Air Force bases home and abroad.
