Clear and sharp! B-1 shots are my fauvorite but F-15 with jetwash is really nice as well.

Brilliant :clap: The B-1 on approach over the speedway is surreal and Aggressor "09", wow, thats a scheme beyond sexy.... :drool:

Shot 8 of the B1 is amazing, Where at Nellis was it taken. When Red Flag is on, is the Speedway any good for photos.

There all brilliant, but the Saudi and the B-1 shots do it for me..!

Ooops! so there is! :oops: I was wondering more about other types and from nearer home or do we no longer participate??

We definitely still do as I saw 4 Gr.4s there last year. We just don't take part in every one and there's getting less of them. Down from 4 a year to 3

Ah! Budgetary constraints all round I suppose.... :sad:

Thanks everyone for comments.

Only non-US participants were this time RoKAF and Saudis. Most shots were shots on the base except for a few (particularly one in the set above - B-1 in a break for landing) from a Speedway, one immediately pasted below is from Speedway too...

Fantastic shots.
I find myself saying this on every Nellis thread but..

Love those aggressors!

Particularly the new splinter scheme F-15.

Stunning light on the A-10 shot too.
