Was it ZD464 that ditched at a seafront airshow?

Yes, that's the one. And as far as I know it was brought back to flying condition! Amazing! :hypno:

Thanks for your comment! Looks like I've got something wrong here: my photo #524 was taken during RIAT'02 and not RIAT'03, as given in the description. Sorry about the mix-up - over all those years all the RIATs seem to blend into one another with a few exceptions of course... :wink: And then the written-off date of 2nd Aug. 2002 makes a lot of sense as it is the day when the aircraft ditched into the sea during the Lowestoft airshow (according to the source below). And yes, it hasn't been brought back to flying condition afterwards as I am writing, too. That's also rubbish - apologies :worship:

Hi folks!
On October 14, 2017 I kicked off this thread with the intention of posting just a couple of sets of nice slides. Meanwhile a whole year and 569 images in 42 posts have passed and I am delighted to read a 30.000+ views and dozens of great replies from you. Thank you!
No, I am not done yet. There is still lots of stuff that I intend to share over the coming months so please keep on klicking this place and let me have your C&C.
As an Anniversary Special here comes a set of photos that I have taken onboard CVN-68 / USS Nimitz during its visit to Wilhelmshaven/West Germany in September 1986. Embarked was CVW-8 with the most famous Tomcat squadron of all - VF-84 JOLLY ROGERS. Remember, the TOPGUN movie was at No.1 at that time and almost every kid in town wanted to get onboard and feel the need for speed… Somehow I managed to be one of the lucky folks to win a tour and these slides are pretty much the best I achieved on that day, as it was really difficult to snap a few good ones with all the people and the equipment and a 35mm lens and crappy light. I hope they are of interest.
#570 USS Nimitz anchored in front of Wilhelmshaven Naval base. While taking this photo there was a lot of action overhead with all kinds of fast jets passing over the carrier: German Alpha Jets, F-104s, Phantoms, Dutch NF-5s, Belgian Mirage Vs, British Jags and Phantoms, and more, all trying to take their photo over the Nimitz. Incredible!

This is still one of, if not the best photo thread on the internet!

I'm a bit surprised that the USN were well on their way to being lo-vis by 1986 (but I'm not an expert on the US Navy). The hi-vis gull grey and insignia white scheme was beautiful. The lo-vis TPS not so much.

I always had a soft spot for Swedish hardware, and especially the mighty Viggen in its charismatic ‚splinter camo‘. In September 1999 a trio of these jets visited Schleswig air base for a Partnership-For-Peace exercise in which the recce experts of Schleswig-based AG 51 welcomed their collegues from F10 at Ängelholm on the other side of the Baltic Sea.
#637 to #639 AJS-37 Viggen 37033/05 F10 Ängelholm - Schleswig 6th Sept., 1999:
Image
#638
Image
#639
Image
#640 & #641 Sk-37 37817/69 with F15-markings/Söderhamn, but on loan to F10 Ängelholm - Schleswig 6th Sept., 1999:

Image
#643
Image
#644
Image
#645
Image
Another chance to see the Viggen in action was the RIAT, of course, in this particular case RIAT'99 where the air defence variant JA-37DI was part of the flying display:

From Double-Delta to Classic-Delta - the Mirage 2000 IMHO is one of the most elegant fighter aircraft designs of all time. Here comes a selection of various versions and colours that I have collected during my slide era. Hope you like them!
