Can you take some more photos from a moving 737?

Well done!!!

Doesn't "look" shot down. More like engine failure , or loss of flight control.

Re: F-35 Lightning II RNLAF ACTION in the desert...

Great photos Peter - Interesting to see in such a computerized aircraft that the pilot still has notes on his thigh pads.
Would have thought that his "office" was paperless!

Yes I do, indeed it goes a little downhill there at Lakenheath :D But I have to edit some shots, thank you!
Interesting - I never knew that it does that! You learn something new everyday on Scramble.

That's a lot of Eagles - did it take all 36 to go up against the Raptors (attempted humor!)
Nice shots - BTW not to criticize but do you notice that your horizon is skewed to the left?

Re: 12dec2015: F-16 "destroyed by own missile", supposedly..

Gee - now there's a shocker. According to FARS the USN has lost 3 carriers and a couple of hundred Hornets to their glorious fighters
I joke of course but its the kind of claims that are made. I guess anything goes in a propaganda war !!!
