Mig-21 heaven, Campia Turzii - Romania

Hi all, With the airshow season well and truly over for the year, I thought I'd try and brighten up the dull days with a look back to the open day at Campia Turzii in July.

Jos, what was your mount for the air-to-ground shots. Niall Niall, That would have been a Romanian air force Puma . You could ...

The position looks a bit into the sun but you can still id the helicopters?
All helicopters identified, no problem. Flypast is in the morning from NW to SE so yes the light isn't perfect but south side of the river is still the best option.

Andravida - Greece 29-3-17

A great visit to this Phantom base during a multi national exercise with visiting Hellenic units as well as USAfres, ITAF, UAEAF, and IDF/AF participants. Lasting memory from the day will be being deafened by an F-4 taking off at full power at about 20-25 meters in front of us. I hadn't put ear plug...

Re: B52's to take on ISIS

There are 3 currently operating out of Moron in southern Spain for exercise Cold Response. So I guess a possible contender for further operations.
