Re: Kleine Brogel (EBBL) 2021 MIL

A lot is missing on the static: 3x FAF Rafale 2x Marine Rafale 3x HAF F-16 4x AMI EF2000 Are they visible from outside the field? These are probably parked at the old 23sq platform in de NE-corner. Strange choice by the Belgiums to park all these interesting acft over there and not (at least some) ...

Re: Wittmund 2021

You can still photograph from the south side of the airfield, but only on the eastern side (opposite of the tower and further to the beginning of runway 26). Near the displaced threshold runway 08 there is indeed a double fence, but you can still make landingshots from there. Wittmund will be closed...

"I can only see an F-15 on those pictures :?"

And what's wrong with that? All that fancy, high tech and overrated so called stealth stuff without the payload you really need... Gimme that graceful Eagle! :D

Re: Yuma airshow vs El Centro

Hi Dmitri, I visited both airshows last year and although both are nice I think Yuma is the most interesting. More variety in the flying program with F-5's, AV-8, F-35 A and B, V-22, AH-1 and UH-1 and some WW2 planes against the Blue Angles and some demo's from WW2 planes, T-33, F-86 etc. (check htt...

Re: Filter op een Canon 70-200 en/of 100-400

Ik heb een B+W uv-filter van ik meen 70/80 Euro voor m'n Canon 100-400 mrk II gehad en kon hierdoor geen scherpe foto meer maken (onverklaarbaar scherpteverlies op willekeurige plekken op de foto's), dus heb deze er uiteindelijk weer afgehaald. Ja, niet fijn om geen bescherming voor m'n glas te hebb...

Re: EHVK 16-06-2019

Did the Spanish EF-2000 started up from the static line (RWY24L) or where they towed to the north side of the field before start-up and departue? And are the Greek F-4's still on the static or moved somewhere else on the field?

MCAS Yuma Airshow 2019

On March the 9th I visited Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona for their annual airshow. Just like the years before it was a great event with a small but interesting static and a great airshow with the US Marines showing most of their air assets in a spectacular way. 1. https://i79.photobucket.co...
