Silver Jets - Finland Ilmavoimat 100

I wasn't really sure which section to add these to, Mods, feel free to move them if needed.
I attended to Finnish Air Force 100th event at Tikkakoski a couple of weeks ago. When I bought my tickets I really never expected to be one of the lucky winners of a flight with the Silver Jets (Fouga Magister pair).
I flew in a close pairs formation with Capt Ari Tolonen (Ret'd) as my pilot and what an experience it was, some nice pairs aeros too. Photography was challenging due to the g's and reflections on the canopy. Here are some of my shots. Thanks to Ari and the show organisers for the trip of a lifetime and my first ever air-air.

Very nice Tony; good to see them at a bigger size.

And I'm still not at all envious!

See you soon

So glad you posted these Tony, and it made me very pleased to see that two days later you still had a mile wide grin and was still babbling like a stoked kid on Red Bull! It’s great that a true aviation fan won and that you kindly shared the experience with all of us. Please share some other photos from the show and let us know your thoughts on Finland!
