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.

Post by Jonathan »

Besides a lot of current military hardware (see http://forum.scramble.nl/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=129607), my year in Australia also brought a lot of fantastic warbirds. Many volunteers are very active here restoring old aircraft in pristine condition; they do a great job! Here are some examples:

The Aussies take their aviation heritage seriously. Very nice collection of pictures.
