What camera did you use? Is it digital, or did you scan your negatives/slides. If so what scanner did you use. Nice clear pictures! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Excellent pics. Somehow the Tornado just looks 'right'.

A great strike plane/bomber, can carry a terrific load.

Love the F104 'display' too. Manned missile or what?

great pics! I didn't know the Italians used the ECR variant also. Only IDS and a few leased F3's IIRC.

Are you blind? It looks like the box my refridgerator came in with wings stuck on.

Wow! Those are magnificent shots. GReat photography of magnificent planes. Very impressive outfit to. What AC is the console photo of? And is the radar set air defence or ATC, or both? just curious.

And i love the low passes and the F-104S.

I to am curious as to the equipment you used. Im a photog by trade (most of the time) and I miss my many trips to airshows. And I really appreciate the magnificent shots of the luftwaffe F-4Fs.....i really miss F-4s. As far as sexy planes, I can only add this.....

I wonder if the late Lt. Col. Holland was flying that one... looks a tad low, wouldn't you say?
