Thank you for the nice comments. These photos were made during standard training missions, i.e dogfights against other F-5s or BVR againts F-18s. BVR engagements often end in dogfights. The photos are taken after take-off in transit to the training area, during the warm-up before the engagement, during a rock & roll after the engagement and during the return to the base. The priority remained in the training of the pilots and the maneuvres were not discussed during the brifieng except that of the image # 15.
