    F-16 Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt & 987 Boxster S

    On Saturday I had the opportunity to take some shots of my car with some fighter aircraft that are assigned to the base I work at. So this is what I could come up with, hope you enjoy




    Best for last

    Nice car - have 1000hrs + in the Falcon, nowadays a Boxter S, slightly less performant

    The F16 looks really small compared to the car.... fun!!!

    Re: F-16 Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt & 987 Boxster S

    That is because the F-16 really is quite a small plane, which you don't expect. The A-10 on the contrary is quite a large plane, whilst you expect it to be rather small... at least, that was whaat struck m when I got to see these fellers in real life from a short distance.

    amazing pics! thanks for sharing

    Re: F-16 Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt & 987 Boxster S

    Great Pics! The hangar in pics 2 & 3 is a beautiful building.

    Boubou, where you one of the F-16's that chased a ufo over belgium years ago? or was it the netherlands? anyways F-16's were scrambled to chase a ufo there and it was on TV here, with the actual air traffic control tapes of the pursuit. Interesting stuff.

    this were 2 buddies from 349 Sqn who were on alert that day. They didn't see any green little men, just some hype and maybe a F117 flying a candid msn in europe before they were shown to the public. Had good jamming (velocity stealer)

    Good to hear that you pilots comply with the "don't drink and fly" rule

    @ Harry: amazing pics - thank you for sharing

    Re: F-16 Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt & 987 Boxster S

    They didn't see any green little men?!? I always thought airforce pilots were little green men! hehe
    And wow, they have purple ones too!

    Re: F-16 Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt & 987 Boxster S

    Joost, you are confusing AF with Navy which that pics represents ...huge difference!

    Noo, ahem... those are the Teletubbies!

    Surprising to see how blueish the Atlas Grey looks on the pictures - do you drive with American license plates? I suppose you use those fancy European-style plates...
    How much longer are you staying in Bitburg?

    Re: F-16 Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt & 987 Boxster S

    NATO plates. Hopefully another two years.
