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.

Spangdahlem Vipers over Poland - June 2014

Post by Borygo »

Due to Russian president madness NATO air forces are much more active over Poland than in past years. Since early spring we have permanent US detachment in Łask air base. Thanks to Av-Det PAO and 100th ARW PAO (this unit deployed KC-135R to Powidz air base) I got chance to catch Spangdalem Vipers refueling in LUCY zone located in central Poland as part of Baltops exercise. There were two waves in 8 hours so I spent "some" time in the air. It was my first tanker ride but thanks to friendly crews the results are not so bad I think:
