It is indeed a Voyager aircraft at RAF Mount Pleasant (MPA) in the Falkland Islands! 🇫🇰 The photo didn’t give a lot away for the location! 🗺

That’s the boot packed, ready for the weekend! 🛫🗺 Who can tell us what the other aircraft in the photo is and where in the world the photo was taken? 🧐

Told you we’d be back! 😉✈️ https://t.co/uLAzFs8qNd

A very rare experience this weekend as @RAFAkrotiri  became temporarily engulfed in dense fog just 30 minutes after our arrival 🛬🌫

Fog is not something we usually see in that part of the world 🏝

@RAFBrizeNorton @99Sqn It's always great to try and capture the @99Sqn C17 in interesting weather. https://t.co/zPiuQrR9gK

As you can see from this calm cockpit during a Visual Run In & Break flown at @Newquay_Airport last week, the C-17 takes a 60° banked turn in its stride! 💪✈️ #99Sqn #C17 #RAF #Newquay #NewquayAirport #NoOrdinaryJob #TrainHardFightEasy https://t.co/bSH06StoMC

This week saw the return of the mighty C17 to @RAF_Gib. Supporting Operations,it would not have been achievable without @GibraltarGov allowing us to utilise the civil dispersal. Further evidence of the fantastic relationship we have to keep the airfield #OpenForBusiness @99Sqn https://t.co/PVc8u1OSDr

It’s not often that you’ll find a @99Sqn C-17 in Brazil but here’s ZZ177 on her final Approach into Rio De Janeiro for a fuel stop! 🏝🇧🇷🛬

Wg Cdr (Ret) Brian Weatherley, an 88 year old @99Sqn veteran is walking 99 miles on #WalkTheSquadron99 in an effort to raise funds for the preservation of one of our former Bristol Britannia aircraft, XM496. To follow Brian’s journey, visit https://t.co/yXW6Mlr7qC #99Sqn #RAF

Two absolutely stunning new shots of ZZ171 at @RAFBrizeNorton yesterday from @MarkbBentley 🤩 🛬🛫 https://t.co/SspaB21B0V

@RAFBrizeNorton @99Sqn @70SqnA400M @LeadershipNext1 if you think an A400m landing at @RAF_Gib is impressive try this @RoyalAirForce C-17 at runway 09 this afternoon @MODGibraltar https://t.co/WOGB3QuTFY

Yesterday’s approach to the famous Runway 09 at @RAF_Gib had the added complication of a wall of fog at the far end of the runway, making an accurately flown approach vital! 🛬⛰🇬🇮 #99Sqn #C17 #RAF #Gibraltar #NoOrdinaryJob https://t.co/VhHdu27Tsy

Back to the grind on Monday, but this double pallet is clinging on to the sunny weekend! ☀️ Don’t worry, we’ll reverse and pick you back up! 📦 ✈️ This video shows a Combat Offload and the grass initially creates quite an optical illusion! 🌾 #99Sqn #C17 #RAF #NoOrdinaryJob https://t.co/AQ7EcHeKoq

That’s “Gear Down” and locked, ready for the weekend! 🤩 A different view for you all during routine maintenance in @99Sqn Base Hangar 🔧✈️ #99Sqn #C17 #RAF #NoOrdinaryJob #MaintainingExcellence #GearDown #FridayThoughts #Friyay https://t.co/WbaWLuXIAS

It’s Cairo! 🏜🇪🇬🌵

Flying through the night is not uncommon for @99Sqn crews and while it can be very demanding it’s often equally rewarding, with views like this one! Can anyone guess which famous world city this is?
