Cold War Jets Open Day 30th May, 2010
Being brought on to the parade ground
Are we unhooked?
Ok – let’s get the show on the road!
All prepped ready to start
Port engine start
Front view – starboard engine start
Side view – starboard engine start
Rear view – starboard engine start
An unusual view of Treble Three but very effective – starboard engine start up
All turning and burning
With engines running checking for leaks
Moving off for figure of 8 taxy
Beginning the figure of 8
Performing the figure of 8
Lined up, winding up those Avons for a fast run
Just listen to that roar
After her run (the sun came out!) turning to backtrack
Treble Three continues her turn – note the air brakes extended on the wings
Heading back now to her parking spot to shut down and cool off.
CWJ Open Day 29th August, 2010
Dennis in reflective pose
Treble Three enters stage right
Graham about to prepare his audio recording equipment
Each cartridge has an 8-10 second burn time
So that’s about 4 seconds….
…and that’s about 8 seconds
And then we do the same again on the starboard side
Clive gives Andy the “thumbs up” for the port side whilst Rigglet checks inside the wheel well on starboard side.
Dennis exercises the flaps and airbrakes
Lined up and ready to roll
There’s quite a crosswind once again
Dennis acknowledging waves from the crowd
Shut down and wrapped up after her run today
The Team after a successful day with Treble Three
Back on her dispersal Treble Three basks in the evening sun.
