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.

Had a great day at Gilze-Rijen today. Many movements and much more beautiful photo oppotunities.
I fanally scored my 17th Cougar on photo. Finally got the S-444. Hope you like my shots.

Great shots! Is it normal to get Apache shots like that at the RWY10 end or were you lucky to get them up close like that (pics 1-3)?

Hi DJ,

Runway 10 was is in use. But the pics were taken at the side of runway 28, so indeed the end of runway 10.

With easterly winds and the Apaches are willing to take the first taxiway to the runway, you get opportunities like Alex did :D .

... so a bit of luck, sun and easterly winds.

My God EHGR must be a photographers walhalla :wink: .

Nice picture of the two Apaches... Same orange sky as in november 1986, when C-140B 12189 landed late in the afternoon @ EHGR. Same runway, other era :)

Uhh, now you're trying to confuse me?! :-| (the spot along the Burgemeester Ballingsweg is probably a more clear description :wink: )

Great eastern wind shots Alex! And a nice pre-program (voorprogramma) to get to the S-444.
My goal is to get the Apaches like you did. I hope the next holiday will make this possible.
