    Bore? Certainly not, more please!

    Was EP 120 flying or is she and the rest of The Fighter Collection still grounded by the CAA?

    Regards

    Sorry Jon'. She wasn't there. May have been in Hangar 2, but I couldn't see her...

    The Grace (ML407) was there tho:





    Apologies for the cliche-d shots. Taking original photos at an airshow is like finding an original view of Venice.

    No cliches there Mat, they look like clever, original compositions to my untrained eye. Looking forward to seeing the rest.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Those six are available at my usual Flickr page (PM if you need the link / too lazy to find them!). All my shots are on a Creative Commons license, so feel free to use them as you wish - just not for commercial purposes!

    I took 375 shots yesterday. I'll see if I can whittle them down tonight...

    More Fighting Falcon shots from the Belgians...



    He was letting it all hang out while performing this low speed pass (approx. 90kts instead of his high speed 550kt pass). The tail was moving around and it looked very hard to keep it together with that angle of attack. Great flying tho. Nice to see the gear down too.

    Nice F-16 pics. I had the chance to fight with the Belgians at a Maple Flag exercise in Canada. They had a couple of cute female fighter pilots if I remember right. I gunned them just like I would any male pilot!

    I'm hoping there's no double entendre in there...

    Say, Nemo, did you originally pilot an Eagle out of Otis? thought I saw your posts at an old thread. If so, i used to enjoy watching you guys fly overhead all the time.

    I am in Falmouth (the Cape Cod, Falmouth).
