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.

Farewell 2nd ATAF

Post by herky »

Also in 1992 was the farewell flight of the 2nd ATAF in Germany.
Looked like the Seventies with Gina's, Starfighters and F-5s!

That was actually 1993, on 24 june 1993 to be exact. I think one of those 104's was actually the last operation Italian F-104G.

That's correct Elmer, and if I'm not mistaken an F-117 passed by aswell, on special request of the traffic controller, I remember him thanking the pilot for making his day :D

Those were the days!

Ooooh! That's nice, thanks Ad :day:

Still with 311 and grey tiptanks... I was three months old when that picture was taken!

My dad was a crew-chief with 312 back then, around that time he had to let go off D-8091, got D-6682 until it's mid-air and then got D-6668 (or D-3x6-8 as we call it!).
