Sorry gents - in my original post I attempted to post the above pic - didn't quite work out.
I'm going to have to spend a bit of time learning the Scramble system.

Hans
These are beautiful shots. It really brings out all the details - especially on the Raptor.
Did you "capture" any of the newly painted F16 aggressor (86-0269)?

Re: Israeli Ministry of Defence selects Aermacchi M-346 jets...

But is it the better trainer? It would seem that the T-50 would be the better LIFT to the F16. Just my 2 penniies worth! :devilish:

Re: LFQI Cambrai 10-02-2012

Thanks for that info Frank. It seems to me that the housing for the chute is/was at the base of the vertical stabilizer - where the ECM/Chaff stuff is now. When did it move to the belly? Or was it always on the belly?
Thanks

Re: USAF cancels Global Hawks in favour of extended U-2 service.

What about another theory? What if the big Hawk doesn’t work nearly as well as advertised? There have been a few reports/comments critical about the mission package maturity and reliability. You can sit at 60k feet all day but if the recce package doesn’t work what is it worth? Then again this may b...
