AV-8B+ from VX-31 wearing a spotty coat of what looks to be the same finish used on the HAVE GLASS-coated F-16s.

BuNo 164128 arriving at Willie last Friday.  I have caught this aircraft three times in the past 13 months and it has been with a different squadron each time.  In August of 2008 it was CF-22 with VMA-211, then in January of 09 it was WF-22 with VMA-513.  Now it's WL-21 with VMA-311.  Looks like a recent swap as well, as the "MARINES" title hasn't been re-stenciled on the tail.

Joe, maybe it's a naughty plane and no one wants it Lips Sealed

Then again, maybe it's a naughty plane and everybody wants it....

Reason number two why I miss living in the UK: jets through the Mach Loop low-level training route.

I take it reason #1 has something to do with meat pies.

Awesome shot.  Those Mach Loop guys are blessed with the opportunities they get.
