My "production"for today. Some slides from the first year I did Military Aicraft Spotting: 1985

Danish Starfighter at Leeuwarden, June 1985
Image

Turkish Hercules at Soesterberg May 1985
Image

KLu NF-5, same day May 1985

For Chris. I like to have as much information in my scans, so that is why I prefer TIF slidescans as a basis image, just as I am taking digitial pictures in RAW format these days. With the TIF I can do more editing than in a compressed ot already altered JPG file. Ok ?

Hey,

here are some photos of F-111's. Some of them are still operational but it won't take long before they are retired :cry:

The first one is ex-Upper Heyford and is now stored at AMARC. Photo taken in May 2002.
Image

And the last two are taken at Surfers Paradise, doing a demo low over the city during the Champ Car races. 22-10-2005

Hi,

Go with the flow with a good old Canberra T4 WH849, on approach to a sunny Marham, July 1999...
Image

further on with some Swedish splinter camo Viggens at Lulea 37911/33 from F21:
Image
The Viggens flew a display during the Midnight sun airshow in June 2003.
Here 37901/51 which is now preserved at Aviodrome in Lelystad:
Image
Two SK-37Es were caught during a hit and run action in one of the main hangars, let by an Viggen pilot, many thanks for that!!!
37807/70 wearing it's old code from F4:
Image
and 37813/74:
Image

regards,

Maurits
