Ellington Field ….Vampires and C2

I received a text from a friend who said “Dude, you need to come over to EF and check out VX-9s new color jet…it is bad a$$”.  That’s all it took for me to make the trip over.  And boy do I agree, it is bad a$$.  One of the more stunning schemes I’ve seen in quite some time.  The Langley stripe on the nose as well as those on the tails, and wing tips reminded me of the good ‘ol days when they flew the Tomcat with the white bunny on the tail.

Another treat was the C-2A from VRC-40, Rawhides.  The C-2 may not be one of the prettiest or sexiest airframes out there, but there is just something about it I like.

The last couple of weeks have been pretty good at Ellington as far as transient traffic.  After the very long dry spell I hope that this is a sign that things are about to change.
