Hurghada, Egypt

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.

In reguest from Stipjes hereby the planes that where to be seen on the airport. Due to the pretty high altitude overhead of my photo position( actually around the swimmingpool in the hotel) I cropped them just to show, although I hate it and it doesn't make it any better ;-) So for you Stipjes .

Wow Vincent, those Mig21's are amazing! Who gives a sh*t that it's a crop; such a rare catch deserves to be put on the board anyhow!

Would be nice if you could resize them a bit though.....

If anyone has more pictures on Egyptian fighters (specifically F-16s), please do let me know. These are quite hard to get to.
