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.

Here's another topic that I think is worth keeping alive for a while.

One year and two days after my first Spotters Day, I was able to attend another one at Volkel on 20oct82 - 25 years ago. 8)

Image
D-8048 of the CAV (Conversie Afdeling Volkel) with practice bombs.

Image
D-8266 of 312 with at least three zaps, lining up.

Image
Close-up of D-8245, now at the MLM.

Image
D-8125 of 306 Sqn.

Image
RF-104G D-8013 says hello.

Image
One-o-four formation made several passes the right way: smoky & noisy!

Image
D-8258 burning rubber in backlight.

Edit: corrected Sqn of RF-104G D-8125.

I have a remark concerning the D-8125
This is a 306 sqdr. a/c and not a 311 sqdr. a/c.
Further more , it is a RF-104G and not a F-104G.
Grtz,
Roel

Erik

P.S. Though I did not say it is an F-104G :wink:

This F-104S was shot on the same day, but was "hidden" at the Safaripark.
