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.

VFC-13 & NSAWC (NAS Fallon)

Post by Bam-Bam »

Great day at NAS Fallon. At NSAWC not much activity, but VFC-13 was out to play.

I hope the Fallon pictures are of interest, because a lot of base visits are done by the very enthusiastic PAO Zip Upham, so a lot of pictures are already on the internet.

PS Hard to imagine that I ever got bored with F-5's during the late-eighties...simply a stunning aircraft, especially in these colors...
