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.

Volkel 25-10-2019 "Pilot Midas bedankt!"

Post by Zonan »

Having a day off and knowing that an Italian C-130 was expected, I decided to go to Volkel.
Too bad I missed the first wave departure, but the luck got me that they used 24L instead of 24R, which allows for way better pics :clap:
More bad news: The C-130 was the same one as I had seen a few weeks before :(
Good news to compensate: Pilot Midas had his final flight on the F-16, which made for some great formation flights, low approaches, touch and go's, low passes and what not :cool:
Anyway, enjoy these pics

Minor detail: somewhere between take-off and landing, J-512 lost the "Pilot Midas bedankt" sticker that was on the canopy frame :)
