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.

F-35 @ Leeuwarden 26 May

Post by doordelens »

I am really, really excited. Where to start. Today, at Leeuwarden AFB there have been some "belevingsvluchten" with the new F-35 Lightning II. These flights were mainly for the people living near the airforce base, to get familiar with the new noise. The noise of the F-35 is not the same as the F-16. Well my first few pics of our Dutch pride: the F-35. Although the weather was not that good for nice pics, attached some of my contribution of this day. (Of course more to follow).
