Frisian Flag 04-04-2014
Lens: Sigma 150-500 OS HSM Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Leeuwarden Airbase The Netherlands

Went to Leeuwarden Airbase yesterday for the excercise "Frisian Flag", the Dutch, much smaller, equivalent of Red Flag ! About 50 fighters from 9 countries are participating in this excercise. The conditions were very challenging. Rainy in the morning and grey all day. Not the best conditions for the Sigma 150-500, but tried to make the best of it. Here some shots:

No, not all of them. At Flickr you can see at how many mm's the shots were made.
