Anotalian Eagle 2012-2 Konya "TRAIN AS U FIGHT" (Large post)

Postby MigF4 on Tue 21 Aug 2012, 5:38 pm

Hi gents,

here is a selection of my shots from Konya, when I was fortunate to be a whole week during Anatolian Eagle 2012-2 able to shoot on base. We had excellent photo-points and a big "Thank You" :worship: must go to everyone involved of the Turkish General Staff in Ankara, and in Konya/Izmir too. And all the crews and ground crews that worked hard to make this shooting happen....
Everyone did an extraordinary job to make this visit happen..... A story can be also seen in the current issue of AIR FORCES MONTHLY Sept. 2012, called "TRAIN AS U FIGHT" with more info about AE 2012-2 too.

It was once again a very enjoyable week in Konya, and even chilly evenings spent with all participants after two missions each day.
Luckily the weather was on our side again, and we had awesome conditions during the whole week and even the nights - off course :rock:

Ok enough for now, let tell the pictures the rest of the story...... hope you enjoy them once again, and comments & critiques are more as welcome :cool:


Cheers
Mick

Gents,

Konya was indeed a great experience, with so many exotic and rare a/c and nations, plus at the other hand, the whole week blue skies and really friendly
Turkish Air Force people, who made so much possible.
For me as a "Phantom Phreak" Turkey was a dreamland :yahoo:

Thanks for all your comments :worship: :worship: and here are some more goodies :rock:

Not a bad selection I suppose :grin:

What a line up - wow, all fantastic, but particular mention for how good the Turkish Cougars, Saudi Tonkas and those Mirages look :drool:

Special Phantom is not shabby either :biggrin:

Great post :clap:

I've just discovered this thread a bit late - stunning images Mick, it appears you've perfected the art of time travel :clap: :clap: :clap:. Now if Heineken did air base visits for photographers, I'd expect this might be the result......
Thanks for sharing these beautiful images,
