Would be nice if you put your photos up here rather than this post being clickbait to your own site
If you like these pics there are more utterly brilliant shots at https://www.flickr.com/photos/131094099@N08/albums

Those F-5s are just amazing.
Edit: Incidentally - did you do any spotting at Yuma or is this just the airshow?
Thanks and I tried to upload these photos at a higher res.
Yes I have visited MCAS Yuma a couple of times and are planning a next visit in March 2019.
Here some examples I took over the years:

Hope you like them.

I'm heading over that way in November and would really love to see some F-5Ns. Any advice?
Yes, these are some of the photos which can be found on the website.
Like March November is also very good time to visit Yuma and if your lucky the WTI (Weapons Training Instructor) course is still on. Then you will see more flying activity and many different USMC-units at Yuma.
For spotting I prefer spot 1 and 2 for landing shots (see scramble-map). Parking alongside the road is prohibited, but watch out for the non-parking signs. On this side of the base there is also a large parking near spot 2, but the gate to this parking is often closed.
Yuma has two runways which are used simultaneously. The main runway in use is 21R.
Spot 3 is also good for take-off but you need a bigger lens to catch the aircraft.

Good luck and looking forward in seeing your photos here.
