Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

US Ambassador visits Kecskemét AFB, Hungary (photo heavy)

Post by Levente »

A few days ago Colleen Bell visited Kecskemét AFB for the invitation of the Hungarian Defense Minister. The QRF was sent up for the C-12C and escorted her plane in.
During the rest of the day several other Gripens did daily flights.

Kecskemét AFB being less then 100 kms away from downtown Budapest and with a direct highway, one may wonder why go from Budapest (airport) to Kecskemét AFB by plane...

This C-12C was present at the airshow held there two years ago by the way.
