Belgian F-16 & Swiss F-18 demojets air-to-air

Post by Aviation PhotoCrew »

Hello again,

we like to share some pictures with you we've made last year during what was certainly the 'hottest' photoflight ever! The weather was cruel at 34 degrees! C , :sweat: , and unfortunately the sky was also filled with quite some haze.

But of course we didn't say no to an opportunity to catch the new Belgian F-16 demojet inflight, and definitely not because also the Swiss friends would join us with their very cool F-18's. Both demoteams made their ferryflight to the Belgian Airforce airshow at Beauvechain airbase.

grrrr, haze haze at 7000 feet: the postprocessing was more something of a rape to make the F-16 look like a pretty bird...

the spare jet flying over the Pampa Range, with the special blue euh 'suitcase' :tongue:

of course this is what we had in mind, a unique duoshot of two demojets as a twoship!

A very pleasant premiere for all the photographers in the Skyvan, that F-18 looks really very nice...I can't say the same about the ever ugly Belgian backgrounds

Well, we do actually have some bits of green without to many houses :cool: love to do that again in Switzerland tough...
