F-16V the latest iterations of the F16
« on: February 26, 2016, 04:02:00 PM »
This week in 2-8-2016 in JRB Ft worth.  We got info about 2 sorties of F-35A and F-16V from Lockheed martin . Rush to the base for the spotting and got quite an airshow! Our local 457thFS came out with 9 jets , VMFA-112 Cowboys had 2 for the sortie and Caught the F-16V coming back from the Gulf of Mexico with the Lockheed Martin Spotter.
Best of all we position ourself to catch the ultimate banking shot from out TX F-16! too bad the afternoon F35A sortie was cancel.

Beautiful series. Great shots. I especially like the 2nd and 3rd Picture.

Well done.

  • How you relate to the issue, is the issue.

Great shots!

Not an expert, but I think this plane belonging to the Royal Thai Air Force is also an F16 - not the latest one.  Taken with an EF 70-200mm f/4L IS and EF 400mm f/5.6L mounted to an EOS M.  RTAF Wing 56, Hat Yai, Songkhla, Thailand.

The camera/lens combo was fine for stationary ground shots, but hopeless for PIF.

Still one of the most aesthetically pleasing (pretty  :) )  aircraft designs in a long time for me. One of you top favs.
