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.

Leeuwarden - Norwegian F-35s - 11-08-2021

Post by Krazy »

A day where the sun disappeared when planes arrived, and grilled us in between...
In the end, an enjoyable day with 4 norwegian F-35s in the bag.

The new arrivals:
Image5148 F-35A RNoAF

Image5207 F-35A RNoAF

Two F-35s flew their first mission in the afternoon:
Image5388 F-35A RNoAF

Image5387 F-35A RNoAF

The Belgian F-16s are also still there, and flew 2 missions during the day:
ImageFA-132 F-16AM BAF

The J-020 came in from the Cornfield Range because of a problem with one of the practice bombs:

Three visits to Leeuwarden for me this year, with the luck of seeing different KLu F-35s on every visit.

Thanks to everyone for sharing the info that was available on this messageboard. Please keep doing that!

Regards,

Bram
