Kadena 21-11-18 Mainly F-15's but some others as well

Post by Lamboali »

Here's a selection I shot at Kadena this morning. We managed to photograph 18 Eagles in about 5 hours plus a few other bits and pieces. Makes a change from Lakenheath Eagles, Although I don't think they are as nice without tanks on. I wont bore you with all 18 so here's just a few

Lovely set of photos. I think the Eagle in its cleanest form (wheels retracted) is a beautiful thing. I reckon the reason the tanks look better on the Es at Lakenheath is that they somewhat hide the undercarriage.

A question I have: your photos don't have any base background in any of them. Is that because you can't get good photos because of fencing or is it not allowed at US bases over there or just sun position?

Just sun position and access. The approach is out over the sea as is the turning shots. There is a 4 lane highway right on the approach, difficult to stop but to many cables, trees etc. By the sea is the best spot
