Polish Fulcrums - air to air - UPDATED

Post by Bartek »

Hi Guys,
Back in August I went to Lithuania to make my first ramp session with jets. Pair of Polish MiG-29s (NATO Baltic Air Policing mission) joined our Spartan for over an hour. Like I said this was my first time so not everything went as good as it should - but thanks to great pilots I am pretty happy with the results. I hope you like them. C+C are more than welcome.

Every one a winner - the image quality top class, the co operation of the Polish duo with both in the same frame each time - makes these amongst the very best air to air action photography - thanks for sharing.

Marvellous Bartek one and all. No tricks just great shooting. You must have been right on the edge with these not only with the doors but particularly speeds for the aircraft.

Ver well done. Best wishes, Ian
