We got best of spotting in Dec when we catch Japanese F-35A .... we also caught an Iraqi F-16IQ testing out the drag chute.... this drag chute test for Lockheed martin only comes on the 3rd or 4th flight for the jet!

Lucky us to have caught that plus our local unit and visiting units came .... the unique one is our 301st FW doing a tandem low key option! I ahve shot them so much but never doing this in tandem.

Nice shots!  Not a fan of the F35, but the images are really neat.
