Beautiful shots of some stunning types .
Difficult to pick a favorite as many of my favorite aircraft are covered in his post , but the F-106 shots just edge ahead . Especially the taxiing single seater .
Such a stunning looking jet . I was never lucky enough to see a living one . :sad:
Thanks for sharing , great post !
Cheers, Mark

Just superb again, brilliant stuff. You seem to have done a very similar trek as capercaillie and I! Unfortunately we weren't let loose around the Intruders and to make it worse a USNFEWSG KC-135 was there too.... :mad: Just love the A-6 series and that's a super image. Never got to see a live TC-4 either and the QF-4J was in the hangar at Mugu - darn it! Fabulous aeroplanes, beautifully processed pics. :clap:
You caaan't trust the system... Maaan!
