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.

J-7, the Chinese MiG-21 clone. And more precise, the first is a JJ-7M (trainer variant), the second a J-7G.

Unfortunately we do not get too many trip reports from this region, so the pics are greatly appreciated!.
J8Es were replaced by the J7 in 2011-2013 within the 70th Regiment.

I love the variety of birds overthere!

The fighter is an about two years old naval fighter trainer, a JL9H.

The two prop aircraft are CJ6A, many of which have become redundant last couple of years.

(btw. I see many birding tours to Happy Island start/end at Beidaihe. Your brother might be interested in a roadside J6 (MiG-19 clone) memorial at 39.816010°,119.527599° there)

I see lots of people signing up for birding trips next year.

Great catches, those!

Hans.
