This shot of the Lockheed Martin – Fighting Falcon F-16 was taken while they were preforming exercises before the Global warming conference in Copenhagen 2009. They were in the air buzzing the city for 4 days running.

  • Thanks Sandra – I would have liked it a bit sharper but just trying to capture this at the speed they were doing I think I got a bit lucky :-))

    Not an easy task mate trying to capture on of these as they buzz past, but you did well with this one. A fav for me mate XXX

  • You’re so right my dear friend. I think the exercise was a full dress rehearsal so they were acting as if there was a war going on… Flat out and all over the place. Thanks for the Fav mate – Much appreciated :-))

    I would have loved to hear them roar!
    Great capture!

  • Thank yo Raoul – yeah the roar really was something – especially because there was two of them flying formation – twice the air show twice the thunder and they did it over and over and over for 4 days. Perhaps they were trying to give me the opportunity to get a good shot… LOL :-)))

    nice shot George, General Dynamics makes the F16

  • Thanks Mark

    – bygeorge

  • Yeah mate you’re right on about General Dynamics – but it was sold on to Lockheed Martin in 1992 or 93 I think. This shot was taken in Copenhagen. So it belongs to the Royal Danish Air Force and I suspect the would be the Lockheed Martin version.
    Let me know how you can tell which is which would you Mark.
