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.

Wow guys, incredible shots. Especially striking the ones from Jeroen and Vinflyer. Jeroen, these 'wings on fire' are truly something special....And I really like the 'sci-fi-movie special fx' surrounding the Hornet that nearly breaks the soundbarrier.

Thank you... I think I have been lucky being there at the right time at the right place :-) Until 10.30AM I was standing in front of the control tower and in the early morning training sessions this was the place where it - at least for me - really happened. After 10.30AM the area became VIP-/journalist-only so I had to leave...

Really a great amount of stunning pictures here. I specially like the Super Puma flares pictures, looks different from the ones I took. Where these photos taken from Tschingel? I was standing on Ebenfluh. Or did the Puma fly a different show on Wednesday?

Excellent photos....and the weather we were hoping for whilst walking up Axalp on the Thursday......however the weather had other ideas!!

Did anyone manage to identify any of the F.5's or F.18's that took part in the rehearsal?

Kind regards

Wow Jeroen, that's a great shot, sharp enough for me! And again there's this sci-fi-movie-style special effect around the plane.

Question (sorry for slightly off-topic): you often see Hornets performing a high-speed pass creating a cone-shaped cloud around them. In the picture above, there is no such cloud but is the strange effect in the air around the plane similar to that cloud? And is the absence of that cloud here due to lower humidity maybe?
