Re: ALl about BUFF

Some good B.52 images and your link to your airshow report provides a good read. The last shot with a B.52 in the background making what appears a khe sanh approach is great -thanks for sharing.

Re: ADEX/Seoul Airshow 2013

Always good to see your photographs from this part of the world , not totally surprising that the security was a tad zealous. Always love to see the F.5 and so different to see the T. 50 in military colours - thanks for sharing Ciaran.

Re: Extracts of Radom

Agg, the second Dutch F.16 was, as usual brought as a display spare and also the mount of coach "Bear" - the shot was taken as the pair crossed in front of the photo section upon arrival. You no doubt caught another Dutch special tail F.16 in static.

Extracts of Radom

Certainly one of the best ever Airshows organised at Radom this year by the Polish Air Force.. Flying morning until literally dusk with tickets at £10. Delayed thanks for the good company including Ukarian Flybynight. A few examples of participants and statics. http://i353.photobucket.com/albums/r39...

Re: Interesting morning at Osan Air Base

What a fascinating set and obviously the frustration of the tight security with all that hardware. Love the Dragon Lady shots - great to capture one landing - but touch and go`s !. An interesting insight into a very sensitive military arena - thanks for sharing Ciaran.

Re: El Centro Airshow 2013

Thanks Ciaran, I believe the Marines and the Navy plan to fly their F.5E`s and F.5N`s for at least 2 more years being much more economical then F.18`s. I hope so - just love the F.5.
