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.

Yep, I saw it and the weatherforecaster told the audience that the trip is 3.500 km and would take 3 hrs. :?

Did any of your guys perhaps photographed me while launching the 132 (ex J-270) as I was the crewchief of this one.
If yes would you be so kind to send me a photo of it. Thanks in advance.

Wow Dick, I would like to see that picture. Sounds like a very special shot. Capturing the moment you actually worked :wink: Guess you need a highspeed camera to see that one.. :D
Kind Regards,

Oh well... let me show a few pictures then too. I was also at the "spottersbult" (spotters hill).

01 The first four F-16's departed between 8:53 and 9:04. The only one with a spotterfriendly take-off was J-509 with callsign "Voodoo3":
Image

02 Unfortunately this F-16 was back on the ground in 11 minutes, said due to a birdhit. The practicebombs are still on the racks:
Image

03 The safetypins are replaced:
Image

04 Judging by the crowd the birdhit was at store-8:
Image

05 The first Jordanian to leave was 130 (ex J-267):
Image

06 The only one who apparently didn't want its picture taken was 131, ex J-269:
Image

07 I don't need to show all six, but the last one was the only one level when passing us. That was 135 (ex J-654):
