'Flankers' and 'MiGs' in Nevada

'Flankers' and 'MiGs' in Nevada

Postby Aviacom on Thu 29 Oct 2009, 3:35 pm

Well, not quite...
But the callsigns certainly were 'Flanker' and 'MiG'.
A preview of the shots featuring in the next issue of Combat Aircraft Monthly following my trip to Nellis earlier this month and visits to the 64th and 65th aggressor squadrons. All I can say is, these are two very special squadrons and the chance to fly with them was an exceptional priviledge. It took an incredibly long time to arrange - but it was so worth it!
The new issue of CA with my exclusive aggressor shots is on sale in the UK and Europe from 6 November, and shortly after in the USA.
Hope you all like them?
cheers
Jamie

Wow :drool: :topbombing: First shot is the pick for me, excellent timing and action. Did you happen to catch any 2 seater Vipers on this trip, aggressor colours of course??

Thanks for the comments.
I don't think the 64th AGRS at Nellis has any two-seat aggressor F-16s now? I was in an F-15D.
