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.

I think this tank needs to be inspected (annual) before december 2012.

That's what I already expected, but I haven't noticed this on the fueltanks before (but doesn't mean it wasn't there... :wink: )

I believe most, if not all, fuel tanks carry a THT month/year at the back. I never noticed one without it.

What about the F-16s?
Do they also have an expiration date somewhere? :?
I always thought that the number on the tail is a serial... :wink:
