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.

Photo 21; is that the hard landing that is also shown on the video they released? Looks like it.

(Hard landing at 9:35)
Yes it is. She had a bit weird flare on landing with a high AOA but not descending, but when she did she came down pretty hard. Maybe she was a bit distracted because at the middle of the runway the North Korean spectators almost ran onto the runway which could be scary for every landing pilot.

Check out at 3:10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_sqn6SkFB4

Yes, the MiG-21's were flown by the ladies. This jet was flown by Rim Sol.
