Default out of town for a bit

Thanks!

Have fun in Japan. I'd love to see some F-2 shots from your lens, Jake!

Thanks, boys. I have an air-air from Misawa set up in a Viper to shoot the resident F-16s and F-2s. Can't wait!

Shot a couple of block 50s from misawa at an air show last year here. Very clean jets, they were. I think I'll build my tamiya 1/48 kit as one.

Eh, not so lucky. The weather was horrendous. We did manage to get airborne, but spent most of the time just trying to find some decent weather. We eventually got recalled back to the base due to the weather worsening, and very few pics were even taken.

But don't forget the photo taken by the F-15 driver!
I'd love to see it in high res!

That's two separate flights, Remy. While Misawa required an Ark, Kadena was outstanding. That flight was awesome!

I knew that it were to separate flights. But it sounded like you had a disappointing trip.
I already knew that it wasn't through your Facebook.

But I really love that shot that the pilot made!

No, the trip was outstanding, overall. I just wish the weather had been better at Misawa. That was the only disappointment.

Think I've only been to Misawa once when the weather wasn't pissing rain or totally overcast the whole time. That one time was in December or January, and there was snow on the ground, cold, but clear. Waiting to see some incredible stuff out of your trip, though-
