Thank you Dan and Gero! Iceland is really unique geologically, waterfalls, volcanos, imposing mountains... really a landscape photographer's paradise. And it's only 5.5 hours away from Maryland! Beats going to California for sure. Interesting enough, two B-2 bombers landed in Iceland last year for some kind of exercise. I bet it must something for people in a small country to see something like that.

Anyway, here are some shots from the NATO Tiger Meet in Germany on June 5. I didn't know anything about it until the day before when someone from the air to air shoot told me about

Just fantastic photography Douglas! I love the paint schemes on these fighters! Great up close and personal Douglas!

Yes, love them Tigers...Now if we could all paint our airplanes and show them off instead of wars, wouldn't that be something. Can't wait to see your air to air pixs. Shot some planes this weekend as well, will post later. Good work Douglas.

I noticed the French Typhoon in the last picture is a bit different from the German Typhoon above it. The French one has a sensor/antennae(?) in front of the cockpit.


The last picture is an Italian Typhoon and the sensor is :

The EuroFirst Passive Infrared Airborne Track Equipment (PIRATE) is the forward looking infrared (FLIR)/infra-red search and track (IRST) for the Eurofighter Typhoon

I took that from Wikipedia

The French fly the Dassault Rafale and the Mirage as their main fighters.
The fifth photo in your series with yellow tail and the Viking tiger is the Rafale

I love it when circumstances conspire to allow you to be a hero for a client. My $100M project that has the 14 trailers of crane part arriving today ran into a snag. The Fire Marshal shut the project down awaiting approval of the special access perimeter road that the crane will travel on. When I arrived this morning things were at a dead stop and all those crane trailers were twiddling their collective thumbs somewhere at an hourly cost that would choke a horse. We brainstormed for a few minutes and figured out that we might be able to get everything moving again if we droned the site and sent the images/video to the Fire Marshal for approval. I shot the appropriate parts of the site, rushed home to process them and it looks like the approval will come through right after lunch.

The number of times a day that I thank the Good Lord for bringing Mike Brewington into my life is incalculable, today is no exception. I probably would never have embarked on this facet of photography/videography had it not been for his encouragement and 24/7 tech help...............thanks Mike!!

Thanks for pointing it out, J-A! I saw that small red/white/blue circle on the last jet's body like the ones on the French Rafale, so I assumed it was French . I didn't know some of the jets are Swedish Gripens until today when I edited the pictures and noticed they looked different from the Typhoons even though they all have a pair of "small wings".

A few more from the landing.

Thanks Bill, it's been a great day. I am meeting with new architect on Thursday who has projects all over the US and Canada and they are looking for a photographer to build a relationship with. These kinds of opportunities make my spirit soar.

Jim, I too treasure our friendship. I hope your fire marshal responds faster than ours. One of my projects called in a panic needing their site for HPs new research center mapped ASAP so they could get the hot work permit and begin steel erection. I went over Sunday night to map it. (Less distractions) It is a large site so I had upwards of 80-100 images to stitch. Even with my Mac Studio it took nearly 4 hours in PS to stitch them. I walked in the office early Monday morning with a couple Super A3 prints and was the instant hero. That was a week ago and we are still waiting for the hot work permit.

Thank you gentlemen!

Bill, I would die for that backdrop!

Haven't really had much time to go through my files from Denmark, here are a few from Tuesday, June 4th. A 2-seat F-16 flown by a Ukrainian pilot. It was very cloudy so we went over the deck.
