Need Help Finding A Couple Of Photos

Mon Jun 04, 2012 1:31 pm

Hi all,

First time posting here so apologies if I am in the wrong area.

I've been a long time user of this site (mainly spending countless hours trawling through the photos) but finally took the plunge and signed up.

Anyway, a couple of years ago I came across some photos that I've never been able to find again so hoping someone here can help me.

First photo which I think is quite popular:
If memory serves me correctly there's two or three jets from the Luftwaffe flying over a forest in the mountains with a castle in the background. There may be some mist over the mountains too.

Second photo:
Taken from an air show quite high up - I believe the US - where there about 50 odd planes in view ranging from F/A-18, F-16, B-1B Lancers, C-130, and other various aircraft. It really puts the size of the aircrafts into perspective. I remember gasping when I noticed just how big a B-1B is next to a F-16.

Fingers crossed someone can help!

Luke

Well, here are a few photos, but I don't think they're what you're looking for:

Do you have any more details, i.e. what airplane, approximately when, etc?

Thanks anyway but the picture I'm thinking of has a couple of modern jets in it. I'm thinking F4 Phantom but that's pure speculation because it was so long ago!

Well, there are only 31 air-to-air photos of F-4s in Germany's Air Force:

Unfortunately, don't see one that looks like what you're looking for.
