Re: GAF Eurofighter Designation

That's a good question - on the official web site of the German Luftwaffe it's just "Eurofighter", however I have also read "Eurofighter 2000" in official German AF documents. I guess the more you will look and ask around, the more different answers you will find or receive!

Very nice! I love the light, clouds on no 5 picture but of course the sub pictures are neat and something different.
Didn't realise that the subs are moored next to the cruise ships... At least your last picture make it look like that

Re: And the 0.1% majority costs $6.46 billion for aircraft

I don't want to go too much into politics but a majority is a majority, regardless how small and ... the Swiss people are actually allowed to VOTE on such and many other issues, whereas our politicians decide for themselves and don't care about us voters AFTER the election anymore and until right be...

Re: Camera Question

A combination if what @daggerfan and @Nighthawke already said.... Try ISO 200 and set the camera to shutter priority so you can select the speed you deem suitable. And oh yes, try different combination of shutter and speed... f8.0 used to be the sweet spot for my old Canon camera and lens combination.

LTG 63 is still active with it's C-160s and will only be disbanded in summer 2021.
