84th Chilean Air Force Anniversary Flights

Postby Shocman on Sat 03 May 2014, 5:24 am

Hi everyone!
Long time without posting here!
This shots was taken on 21st March, the day of Chilean Air Force, so as usual a big flypast was performed. I went this time to Arturo Merino Benítez International, to catch the aircraft departures and arrivals that day. The Flypast is performed in El Bosque Military Air Base.

I missed the first planes departures (KC-135)

The next plane was the rare EB-707 Condor AEW

Then F-16 Block 50

After one and half hour the planes come back to Arturo Merino Benítez International.

Very nice report, thanks for posting Shocman. Must have been difficult circumstances : heat haze at take off and high sun position during landing.

Love the condor :cool:
