A trip to Europe in December to a very cold and wet Wittmund to catch JG71 in action before a brief trip to Leeuwarden in the Netherlands.

Thanks for the comments, needless to say it was a very enjoyable trip but boy was it cold!

One more added from Leeuwarden, forgot to include it in the original post yesterday.

A composite of 7 exposures showing the stages of an F-16AM of RNAF 322 Squadron performing "Touch-and-Go / Circuit" manoeuvres.
