Clear and sharp! B-1 shots are my fauvorite but F-15 with jetwash is really nice as well.

Shot 8 of the B1 is amazing, Where at Nellis was it taken. When Red Flag is on, is the Speedway any good for photos.

We definitely still do as I saw 4 Gr.4s there last year. We just don't take part in every one and there's getting less of them. Down from 4 a year to 3

Thanks everyone for comments.

Only non-US participants were this time RoKAF and Saudis. Most shots were shots on the base except for a few (particularly one in the set above - B-1 in a break for landing) from a Speedway, one immediately pasted below is from Speedway too...

Fantastic shots.
I find myself saying this on every Nellis thread but..

Love those aggressors!

Particularly the new splinter scheme F-15.

Stunning light on the A-10 shot too.
