F-16s At Dallas Love Today 12/11

Fri Dec 12, 2003 4:13 am

If you work or live near DAL, you're in for a treat today...

Two F-16s will perform a fly-by at 3:45pm -sharp- and you can expect them to do so on runway 13R. Good vieing locations will be Shorecrest Drive on the north side of the airport, and Mockingbird on the south side. The airport parking garage should also provide a great view.

Enjoy!

FYI, they're spending the night at DAL (parked at SWA's hanger adjacent to 13R), and will depart about 10:00 am Friday morning 12/12....

I got plenty of shots myself. I can't wait to get home and check them out.

I was out with my video camera and got them coming down the centerline of 13R, but when they broke right into their 360, they went right into the sun (from where I was) and I didn't get much. I did get each one landing, and later taxiiing across 13R to the MX ramp, but I had the chain link fence spoiling the shots... I may go back out to HDQ in the morning and catch the departure...

Did you get any photos once they repositioned outside the new hanger?

Yeah, I got a few shots of them by Hangar 'D' as the sun was going down. I don't know if I can use any of them though.
