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.

Flight of 2 Red Devils landed at the same time, they may have been part of the exercise as well

Still no squadron markings on the tail, but the side number (32) is new

Hey thanks! Yah, the weather has been VERY cooperative. Absolutely clear skies the past week. The jets helped me out, too. Two hops per day but the light was so much better when they landed after the 2nd flight I ended up using all those. I only wish that some of the ATAC jets that were also involved had paid a visit. I could see on ads-b Exchange that ATAC sent 4 Hunters and a Kfir to the same simulated battle. They flew in and out of Pt Mugu and never came near NZY.

Nice shots indeed!
Is it just me (or better: my pc), or are others also seeing just a part of the photos? I need to scroll the screen to the right to see the rest, rather annoying. I noticed this before with a few posts.
Cheers,

I can see them without any hassle. Might be your browser instead of your pc.
Greetz,

Interesting. With Internet Explorer they don't fit, but when I view the topic via Chrome indeed no problem.... Thanks for the advice!

Did this aircraft have its tail replaced? Or has the painter made a slight error?
Not bad AT ALL for a civvie, by the way! 8)

Yah, I noticed the nose/tail mismatch right away. There must be a story behind that, but not much chance to find out. We'll see if Tac Air comes down for the next battlegroup COMPTUEX (Vinson, I think) and if they've changed the paint on the tail.
