Must be the F-5 Tiger [J-3211] that took off with them.
My fried told me that it took photos of the formation.

ciao guys,

as tis meyer is not possibel to post something in the froum, thats what he sent me:

Hello!

Big thanks to all of you for your kind remarks and e-mails! It's very nice to see, that with one of my images I could motivate you to even spend your time to drop me a line. Again, very nice, and thanks for all the support!
I'm not so long into spotting, and to have such a great success makes me very pride  Big grin)

The speaker at the field said, they were 41. Before uploading it, I counted it again and also counted 41. I know, I was tired... Big grin
Maybe the 41st aircraft would have been a 'Red Arrow', because there was one of them staying on the ground. I don't know...

"definitely not something you see everyday"

That's very true. The speaker said, that the last time something like this had been displayed was in 1972, somewhere in France. I hope we don't have to wait another 30 years for a repetition of that!

So, thanks again to all of you and thanks to "Rotate" for publishing my text!

Tis
