Crazy two weeks -Heli's F-15's F-16's F-18's F-22' s

Post by lozza »

Well never thought 12 days off from work would result in so many varied photo's, week one was spent in Switzerland sightseeing, was staying near Meiringen so 18's had to be involved, a trip to the top of Europe (Jungfrau) on the train results in some unexpected hell action, then there was last Tuesday in the Mach loop, Wow is all can say about that, 8 years of waiting to get an F-16 low level was for me more special than the 22's but hell what a catch.

A few non military hope thats ok, all part of the last two weeks..

F-16 shots are epic. I think it's easy to underappreciate them since they're reasonably common, but they really are very good looking machines.

Agree with the above. F-22 shots are great, and god damn those F-16s look good low level, and you've more than done them justice in your photography, Laurie.

Awesome thread, as per your usual excellent standards. :worship:

Another one for the F-16 shots, the rest are nice as well, but the close up Vipers are really something else :clap:

Excellent set Lozza, loving the new fin design on J-5011, last Raptor shot is perfect. :up:
