I always thought that Czechoslovak camo was the best looking for Mig-29s. Great photos as always. Particularly like the ETPS Jag (the angle of the stationary one).

After a healthy round of Phantoms come a couple of Tornados.
The first six pictures (images #450 to #455) were all taken at Lechfeld Air Base during NTM’98, then home of JaBoG 32 with 1.Staffel/32 (321.Sqn) being the hosting tiger unit. The event also covered JaBoG 32’s 40th anniversary with one Tornado ECR in a very attractive but seldom seen special paint scheme,
#450 Tornado ECR 46+47 - seen here on finals RW21 at its homebase after yet another 40+ aircraft COMAO during NTM’98:
