Well you gotta admit they wouldn't have an opportunity like this back home.

Flying lower than the windmills, dikes and tulips impressive, but probably not as photogenic. :mrgreen:

I'm particularly impressed by the wingy stacking low on lead in the turn. :shock:

Firstly NEVER HIT THE LEADER in formation. Secondly NEVER FLY LOWER than the LEADER at LOW LEVEL. End of story.

Found it...this normally would have gone in the deleted file, but that's the lower ridge on the canyon obscuring the bottom right of the shot, so I kept it.

From my own post on the previous page. :oops:
This photo I posted was appears to be a composite photo. :doh: (I thought it was real.) I was deceived. :bang:
Sorry for the trouble. :notworthy: I found the original photo.

It sure looks like this F-15 is toast, and that probably came after it got creamed by an AMRAAM (or 2) at range. Tough to watch a former favorite surpassed like that.

Perhaps the forthcoming F-15EX will do something to even the odds :mrgreen:
