Take some snaps of Exercise Flying Rhino over Northumberland

Foreign fighter aircraft can be spotted flying over the Northumberland countryside over the next few weeks.

US Air Force F15E Eagles are joining UK forces for Exercise Flying Rhino which is a small-scale Close Air Support exercise for 1 (UK) Armoured Division. The exercises have an essential part to play in Forward Air Controller training and qualification.

So if you’re in the area, (some were seen flying over Alnwick), why not take some pictures and upload them onto AirSpace. Your picture could appear in Flightglobal’s Image of the Day Blog and Flight International.

For more information on the type of aircraft involved and where to see them see the Northumberland Gazette.

This is how Flight International reported on the F-15 being rolled out back in 1997…
