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.

Although it was not 100% certain that they would leave today, I stepped on my bicycle and cycled to the field. Score: 11 H-60s, 5 AH-64s and 4 CH-47s. I think there was no better spot for photos like this, despite the backlightning.

12. Unfortunately the Chinooks hovered directly to the runway from their position and took off between intersection B and C.

Very nice spot.
I'm not that familiar with Woensdrecht, can you give some coordinates?

lekkere foto's. Ik had zelf ook de pech dat ze neit vertrokken toen ik daar stond! Wel alles met de aankomst kunnen vangen gelukkig. Mooie reportage hier :-D

The sun came out around noon just what was needed for these light-sucking monsters :wink:

... en de noordtrack is niet zo 'forgiving' voor de spotters qua licht Werner, mooi gedaan!

Tja, op zo'n moment had ik toch liever bewolking gehad.... Achja, beter iets dan niets natuurlijk. In ieder geval tof om plaatjes van binnen de hekken te zien!

I guess seen the position, you were standing on the airfield somewhere?

Very nice series of these 1ACB's :-D
