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.

Taiwan trip 2019 - ROCAF

Post by D2X »

Hi guys,

I am pleased to share with you some pictures taken two months ago in Taiwan. Some difficulties with the aerial activity, the weather and sometimes the military police but finally, I am pretty happy with the result.

First stop at Hualien AB.

Sure. Normally it does not fly on thursday, saturday and sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, there is no movement on monday morning in Hualien and thursday morning in Taitung. Then, even if it was almost the best season of the year, it remains a tropical island and the weather remains almost unpredictable. For the military police, in Hualien it is a little bit unfriendly if you get too close to the air base. They asked us to leave. In Hsinchu, just a simple check. In both cases, we were photographed with or without our permission.
