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 chinoock »

Hi there,

on June 12th 2007 I had the unique opportunity to visit the technical school of the German Air Force in Kaufbeuren (Technische Schule der Luftwaffe 1). For education and training there are aircrafts still in use which are not in the line of duty any more e.g. Alpha Jet and Starfighter.

1. F-104G Starfighter (21+69):

2. F-4F Phantom II (37+14):

3. F-4F Phantom II (37+14):

4. F-4F Phantom II (37+14):

5. MRCA Tornado IDS (43+34)

6. MRCA Tornado IDS (43+34)

7. Alpha Jet A (40+79)
Image

8. F-104G Starfighter (22+55)

I hope you have enjoyed the pictures...you can find a few more on my website here...

Comments are welcome...

Like 'm, Gerald. Great light on the first F-4 shot and well done in the confined space of hangars. The angle on 22+55 suits her fine!

Hi Gerald,

nice shots! Do you by any chance have a log of what you saw? I visited Kaufbeuren this summer when they had the open day, and am interested in a full log if you have one.
Thanks!
Cheers,
