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.

The AT-802 head-on with the fire truck in the background is a winner!

Yes, yes, great series! My fav is probably the CL-415 nearly head-on, dropping.

Thanks! :toppie:

It was about 200m. You could drive all the way.

Awesome!!!! :respect:

Damn, we left the Split area (Trogir) on the 22nd! :evil:

Were these pictures of the scooping CL415 taken from Ciovo? Where was the fire?

The fire was about 1 mile north of the airfield. When taking the shot of the Mi8 in front of the smoke, I was still at the airfield. When I saw the fire I drove up there. Later I drove to the beach in Trogir, straight south of the airfield. From there I took the water shot and the one with the church tower.
I wasn't staying in the Trogir area actually, I was closer to Zadar. I just had the feeling that spotting at Split would give something special and having arrived there this unique oppertunity proved my spotting instict right! :P

Thanks for the kind responses everyone!
