Tight formation

Again the Turkish Stars demo team in action on the Cambrai air show last weekend. Here a tight formation of eight Northrop NF-% aircrafts. The front one and the one direct behind it are NF-5B dual seaters.

During my airforce days (light years ago) I have flown in these aircrafts, a great simple and reliable crate. it was called: "the last real aircraft" of the Royal Dutch Air Force (no fancy electronics or fly-by-wire). The RNAF who sold these planes to the Turkish airforce.

Very sharp photo Hans - just as it should be. Tight composition and you've got them with the sun in the right place - highlighting the tops of the aircraft.

Nice shot!!

Hi Hans...
Nice shot with so nice timing...
Beautiful view...

I suppose that to take a photo like this one, in fast movement, is very difficult. Excellent capture. Great sharpness and colors. Fantastic POV.

Hi el maestro,
un vrai plaisir de yeux, il ne me manque plus que d'entendre le bruit de ce passage de cet équipe.
Bravo pour cette prise de vue ainsi qu'à cette formation turque.
Le contraste des couleurs est saisissant.

I love these little things Hans.
The good old F5 tiger.

Not sure if you ever got a program called Captain Scarlett when you were a kid, but they really do remind me of the "Angel Interceptors" the model aircraft used in the program.

Another good quality shot.
Good clear skies with lots of colour displayed from the aircraft and smoke.
